UPCOMING EVENTS

FART Pt 2: The Squeakquel: Secret of the Ooze

Presented by Cindy Popp

FART Pt 2 is the long-anticipated follow up to FART: The Motion Picture (https://www.cindy-popp.com/merch/fart), a feature-length video mix tape. FART Pt 2 shares the same disjointed spirit, shlock value, crapster sensibility with all-new selections culled exclusively from VHS tapes. The video equivalent of throwing a cream pie against a freshly painted wall, viewer beware: none of this will make sense and much of it will be anti-pleasurable but hopefully the shared experience will lead to something fun and, as Bonnie Raitt says, will give ya “something to talk about”!

Cindy Popp is a visual artist, clown about town, and physical media enthusiast. She was born in Austin, grew up on a semi-truck, and now spends her time watching movies with her husband Bill and their cat, Nacho.

Chess but Better (or Worse)

Presented by Fantastic Arcade

Ole’ boring chess, who even likes it? Time to reinvent this beloved classic by making it way better…

well…. on the other hand, this whole Chess thing really has a “being good” problem and it’s high time that a bunch of people made way worse versions of chess or the idea of chess.

This event is a showcase of time-based media that considers “what is chess but better (or worse)” as part of Fantastic Arcade’s Media Jam #2 (you can still submit here!). All submissions will be played live at the event as well as streamed on Fantastic Arcade’s twitch page.

Fantastic Arcade’s mission is to celebrate, amplify and support the unique and underrepresented within indie games and beyond.

Always attitude!) and then are thrust into the witness protection program and forced to relocate Down Under, where they also find love. If you’re from Urugli, you won’t wanna miss it! And even if you’re not, on July 10th, You’re Invited to The Case of the clip show: a mish mash of the best straight-to-VHS capers from the tiny lil tots. Goo goo ga ga, put these babies to WORK already. Let’s party with the fraternal queens of capitalism! Bring your old ass husband! Drink a giant cup of Starbucks! Put your little brother up for sale! Prior knowledge of MK ultrA not required but always celebrated. You got it, dude. If it’s up to me, you’ll R-S-V-pee!

PWR Video Movies Presents: Legend’s of Wrestle (sic)

Presented by Party World Rasslin’

Mush-mouthed monomania and weaponized furniture — that’s wrestling. What else is wrestling? Wrestling is the only real sport. It’s not just humans smacking into each other (thought that happens — a lot). It’s a live exhibition of naked, clashing spirits! Watch meatheads with no business holding a microphone scream their souls bare, and give them your heart. Feel the power of a humble artform that’s been around for longer than rock music. Become enchanted by the heroics, skullduggery, and utter mayhem. Discover a need you never knew you had! Party World Rasslin’s Commissioner Chris Monica presents matches and interviews designed to give a broad overview of the Glory of Pro Wrestling. Hysterical, exciting, raw, and life-changing, wrestling is really fun to watch with friends. See more sweat on human bodies then you thought possible and drink deep of some cask-strength glowering. Thrill to surprising athletics and – most importantly – experience some weird, indescribable moments will be with you long after the event has ended.

Party World Rasslin’ (PWR) is a giant psychedelic party about wrestling that is also, itself, a wrestling league. Our shows have grown since 2014 from small backyard parties for technoburnouts and noise-freaks into giant free warehouse megaspectaculars shaped by our roots in DIY movements across Texas. We love wrestling—we think it’s a perfect thing—and hope you can too.
