Penitentiary III w/Jamaa Fanaka @ Alamo

The Original Alamo Draft House downtown never ceases to amaze me. Tonight the greatest movie theater in town will be showing the movie Penitentiary III with writer/director Jamaa Fanaka on hand before and after the movie. Never heard of the film? Read this description from IMDB: “A man is framed for murder and sent to prison. He is beaten and tortured, then forced to fight the prison’s worst killer, a martial-arts fighting midget called Thud.” If that doesn’t sound like a cinematic masterpiece worthy of an Oscar, I don’t know what planet you’re from! The film came out in 1987 so I guess the Academy missed out on voting for this one. Head to Alamo’s website to get tickets for the show starting at 9:45pm.

Keep Austin Weird Festival

The sixth annual Keep Austin Weird Festival & 5K will be taking place this Saturday(6/28) at Auditorium Shores. With us being a music website, we don’t really care too much about all that running so let’s talk about the killer lineup of bands for the festival. Bands will be getting started at 3 pm with Super Pal Universe and going until 8:30 pm with headliner Alejandro Escovedo. Other highlights include Austin band What Made Milwaukee Famous and my favorite new artist coming out of Austin Black Joe Lewis. Wristbands for the event are only $10 which is less than what you would pay to see any of these bands. Check out the website for the event for more information & band lineups. If that’s not enough to make you want to go, listen to “Gunpowder” by Black Joe Lewis and you’ll change your mind. Promise.
