You Kept those Tapes After Digitizing Them, Right?
Before making your weekly trip to the Texas Theatre, touch base with Mom and Dad. It’s important to know if your awkward and embarrassing childhood home videos are safely tucked away in the attic, far from prying eyes. If not, you may find yourself nervously watching Thursday’s Found Footage Festival, waiting to see a familiar face on the big screen. Putting an A/V twist on Davy Rothbart’s Found print collection, Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Late Show with David Letterman) take their odd collection of salvaged VHS tapes on the road, and they’re making a stop in Oak Cliff to show off their latest discoveries. You’ve got one night only to enjoy Pickett and Prueher’s found treasures, so hightail it to Texas Theatre (231 W. Jefferson Blvd.) at 8 p.m. Thursday. Tickets cost $12. Hold up, you say you’re a baller? Well, there’s a two-ticket deal that comes with volume 6 of the DVD for $32. Call 214-948-1546 or visit foundfootagefest.com.
