Not Gene Wilder, too! No one will ever be able to match that slow buildup to wild eyed hysteria that only he could summon. I’d always thought if I ever met him in person I would tell him the story of the time my mom and I went to see Haunted Honeymoon when it first came out, but we accidentally went in the theater that was playing Maximum Overdrive instead and were thoroughly confused. We realized our mistake around the point where that dude gets the soda can in the head, and there was much hilarity. I bet ol’ Gene would have liked that story…

This is a fundraiser for Sean and Monique Lyons, whom many of us know from the local music scene. They moved to Louisiana a year ago only to have a house fire, with no insurance coverage, the day after their one year wedding anniversary. We love the Lyons’ and want to help them with all we can, so on this night we gather on their behalf.

Featuring performances by MOFU! (members of MIRV, Mordred, Fungo Mungo, The Spent Poets and Third Eye Blind), MCM & the Monster, Kehoe International (members of Victims Family & Duo De Twang), CACA plays Zappa (members of Primus and Limbomaniacs), Maximum Bob of Deli Creeps plus special guests!

Music- Friends- Raffle Prizes and more. Tickets and donations at the door.
