Just wanted to mention that because of the overwhelming success of the RiffTrax Live event that took place on August 20th, Mike Nelson and Co. have decided to do an encore presentation on October 8th (click for participating theaters and tickets).
What is RiffTrax, you may ask? Allow me to shamelessly cut-and-paste from their website:
Q: What is RiffTrax?
A: RiffTrax are comedic MP3 tracks that you play in-sync with your favorite movies. Written and performed by the stars of the award-winning TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax brings the unique humor of "Satellite of Love" partners Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett to Hollywood's hit movies.
I was fortunate enough to have my local theater participating in the live event, which had Mike, Kevin and Bill riffing on the short film Flying Stewardesses before taking on one of the ultimate bad movies, Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space.
It was a lot of fun, and the encore show is actually a few dollars cheaper than the initial showing! I highly recommend it to anyone with fond memories of MST3K or anyone who just wants to spend a couple of hours laughing their butts off.
