Get Your LAFF On -- RiffTrax LIVE This Thursday
While admittedly having only the most tenuous relationship to the music biz, fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 can see some of their favorite characters perform live-on-screen this Thursday (August 19), beginning at 6:00 p.m. MDT. Michael J. Nelson ("Mike"), Kevin Murphy ("Tom Servo") and Bill Corbett ("Crow T. Robot") reprise their MST3K roles as members of the RiffTrax team, providing witty commentary while watching D-Level movies.
Thanks to Fathom Events, the Denver-area media company that also distributes "The Met in HD" opera cinecasts, fifteen (!!) movie theater complexes along the Front Range will show the RiffTrax crew performing live to the cult movie classic, "Reefer Madness." Check here to find a location near you.
In addition to what will undoubtedly be hilarious, esoteric repartee riffed against one of the most bizarre films ever made, attendees will also be treated to the RiffTrax team's take on three short-subject films. If you're familiar with such classic MST3K bits as "Uncle Jim's Dairy Farm" or "A Day at the Fair," you'll know exactly what to expect.
In addition to this live presentation, there will be a re-broadcast of the entire show on August 24.
