My friend Shannon McCormick has a weekly improv theater-thingie going at the Salvage Vanguard Theater here in Austin. Tonight, they’re adding a show called “Couching Out”, and the first guests for this experimental new show are myself and Lars Nilsen, who curates Weird Wednesdays at the Alamo Drafthouse. You can get the address here. It’s 10:30 tonight, and it’s $10 to get in. Because there’s money on the line, I promise to wear cute shoes, due to the fact that everyone likes to see cute shoes.
Seriously, it should be entertaining. Shannon and his co-host Buzz Moran have promised that Lars and I will be quizzed on trivia about cult movies and politics, but not necessarily based on our subject of expertise. Other suggested topics of conversation include trade theory, 70s and 80s rock music, and whether or not it’s worth $625 to buy the gold badge to SXSW music this year. (I have one for film and interactive, but you have to buy the music one separately.) Here’s the theater’s website for more information.
