Video Pirates presents
THE SCOTT AND GARY SHOW Retrospective
From 1983 to 1989, The Scott and Gary Show served as a lo-tech American Bandstand for the punks, outsiders, and new wave kids of the 1980s. Over the course of 19 episodes, public access audiences were treated to confounding comedy, awkward interviews, and early live performances from a host of now legendary musicians including The Beastie Boys (pre-hip hop), Half Japanese, Butthole Surfers, Velvet Monkeys, Shockabilly (the singer played a modified lawn rake) and Philly local Ben Vaughn.
To celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary, Video Pirates will screen a “best of” the show with live commentary from Scott and Gary. And then, this is the crazy part, the guys will be donning their old costumes, handing out 3D glasses, and re-creating an episode live in the Mausoleum complete with a reunion performance from Baltimore’s The Beatoes. Dancing and costumes are encouraged.
Advance tix are $10, no refunds or exchanges.
The Cinedelphia Film Festival is a Philly-centric celebration of Philly film running from April 4-27, 2013.
