You have your own July 4th traditions I’m sure. Personally, I used to celebrate by finding a limey, boxing his ears and stealing the gold coin that’s underneath his powdered wig. However, David and myself have spent the last two Independence Days at the Downtown Alamo Ritz making fun of (what else) Roland Emmerich’s 1996 B-list parade Independence Day along with Master Pancake Theater. This is the landmark film that proved alien computers are Macintosh compatible.
These shows are always a lot of fun. You gather with your fellow freedom enthusiasts and watch Will Smith blow shit up. Pretty great! The only downside is I’ll be out of town, so David, Joe and John will have to make double sure that our colors don’t run (right?).
Seriously folks, these shows are super fun. You got 5 chances to see it this weekend. Tix and showtimes here. These shows will sell-out!
BTW: As a result there will be not be a Mascot Wedding Show on KOOP this Saturday.
Do you love freedom but have a crippling fear of fireworks? Are you allergic to barbecue? Did you settle out of court with your local public pool because of that unfortunate “shirtless discrimination” case? Then we have just the thing for your 4th of July holiday!
This weekend only (July 3rd-5th), Mac Blake and David Jara of Mascot Wedding will be joining Master Pancake Theater in the obliteration of the 1996 classic(?) Independence Day at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz. This is an encore presentation of the sold-out show they did this time last year, so if you missed it last time then thank whatever god you pray to that it’s back. And if you saw it last time, don’t let that stop you from grabbing some friends and coming out for what is sure to be one the funniest shows of the year.
We cannot stress this enough: this show is running for ONE WEEKEND ONLY. Get your tickets while you can, because it’s only a matter of time before actual aliens come and destroy us all. Then you’re really gonna feel like shit for missing this show.
Tickets available at the Alamo Drafthouse web site
UPDATE Both shows Friday (7/3) have already sold out. That only leaves you THREE chances to see this show. Hurry, damn you!
REMINDER: Because of these shows there will be no Mascot Wedding show this week on KOOP. When describing how this makes you feel it’s okay to use the word “devastated”.
Mascot Wedding’s Mac and David are once again joining forces with Master Pancake Theater’s John and Joe. This time, the boys will be showing and mocking Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day, starring Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman and a veritable Who’s That? of stars. Starting July 4th, this is going to be a limited two-week run so don’t delay in seeing this classic celebration of blowing shit up and American ass-kicking. We heard this movie never leaves Toby Keith’s DVD player and with good reason.
