12-HOURS TO FINISH SOMETHING COOL TOGETHER
w/ ?‍♂️? & ? & ????? &??? (Screen 1: Heftier Stronghold, Screen 2: I Lean, Screen 3: Negate Nutmeat: Annul Jitters + Wick John)

No MoHA drive-in would be complete without a night that pushes the outer limits of its host’s sanity, and so the MoHA all-night marathon is back!! This time we’re doing 3 screens showing massive movie franchises!! On one screen we got those good hobbit boys trying to find a volcano (extended editions ?), on the other we’ve got those movies where it’s always a big nasty alien fighting a brunette who is often Sigourney Weaver but not always (we’re showing these in chronological order starting with the one that’s named after the guy who stole fire from the Gods. I just googled what that guy did I get why they called the movie that!), and on the final screen we’re showing two beloved trilogies! The first is a 90’s franchise about turtles doing karate and eating pizza, the second is about Keanu Reeves doing fighting and eating probably those gold coins they use for everything! “Whoa dog! Starting with the movie first and not mentioning the activity until now?? What gives Neil?” Keeping you on your toes reader! The activity is cool but I think makes more sense within the longness of the movies! It’s finish that thing night!! If you have a Covid project you’ve been slacking off on, bring it to work on in your car throughout the night! I’m talking anything! Your crochet masterpiece, your screenplay, your 2020 tax return, the perfect over easy egg! We are here for it and support you! We’ll be checking in on people’s projects every few hours whenever it feels like an okay time to pause all 3 movies!

Drive your car 10 feet forward, 10 feet back, dosey doe your car idk I’m still figuring all the steps! Every car will have lots of space so as long as you don’t have one of those cars from the 2000’s that was accelerating instead of braking (idk it was a whole big deal and they did a huge recall but I can’t find it on google!) you’re not gonna hit anyone 🙂 No back up cam required!

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”!

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.

We encourage and invite any sex workers who are committed to dismantling racism, anti-Blackness, colonialism, transphobia, trans/misogyny, ableism, class-oppression, and whorearchy to join us in creating a loving and supportive community of adult industry providers in Austin TX. Funds donated will be used to support mutual aid assistance for verified sex workers in our community, and to fund operational costs for our organization.

Sleepaway Camp

Presented by Bambi

Join us for a double feature of Sleepaway Camp (1983) and Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988) Gather around the campfire or watch the hack and slash thrills from the comfort of your car! During the films, you’ll be able get to know Angela Baker, the survivor of a horrible boating accident which claimed the life of her father and injured her twin sibling – a horrific incident that scarred her family and left her in the care of her domineering, mentally-unstable Aunt. It was under her care that Angela was truly “born,” as, prior to this, a boy. Raised as a boy, and deeply confused about her gender, Angela was eventually sent away to Camp Arawak at age 14 in an attempt to help her integrate into youth culture. The act proved fatal, as young Angela suffered a complete psychological breakdown and began murdering her fellow campers and counselors. As she grew into a young adult, this tradition continued as Angela eventually became a counselor at the campgrounds herself, and she goes down a destructive path to murder her helpless campers to teach them valuable lessons on the harmfulness of bullying, lying, and…fornication in the woods (?) Here’s what you can expect: a subtitled viewing experience of both films, and 80’s tunes all night long! Gather ‘round a nice campfire and enjoy s’mores and scary story telling!

No car? Limited outdoor seating is available! Each socially distanced platform has 4 chairs. Blanket room will also be available for picnic style seating (bring your own blanket). Groups that are not remaining inside their car are limited to 3-4 people. Please limit mingling between groups. Port-a-potty restrooms will be available.

In the Ether

Presented by Arcos

Welcome to the Ether. You are there. I am here. And together we are creating a third space, between yours and mine. In the Ether, we encourage you to find ways to slow down and listen to your body. Feel any sensations that come up. Let us know how you feel. Send a message and help our host navigate this space alongside friends and strangers. Feel free to wander: we’re not sure what we’re looking for, or whether we’ll know if we find it. But remember, we are all journeying in the Ether together.

ARCOS experiments rigorously to discover adventurous new forms of performance, in part by making hybrid work that integrates newer and older technologies through bodies in movement to question dominant understandings of the world. Provoking interplay along a spectrum from human to mechanical to digital, virtual and physical, live and asynchronous, ARCOS seeks to imagine tangible new relationships that may be surprising, intimate, and immense.

Back to life, back to… (a multisensory and gustatory evening!)

Presented by laura g. gutiérrez

Well, here we are again, saying goodbye to another sucky Summer (are you with me?). Let’s all pretend that a better time existed, one by the ocean that most of us can’t access now for various reasons (global pandemic, poverty, late-stage capitalism and the overdevelopment of beach zones and structural inequalities). This night is an invitation to travel through our eyes, our ears, and other modes of sensing, and to come back to life, as we watch the documentary Vuelve a la vida (Come back to life). This 2010 film by Carlos Hagerman is about a legendary scuba diver, Hilario Martínez, better known as Perro Largo (Long Dog), and his entanglements with a menacing shark and a top model from NYC during the Acapulco of the 1970’s. The film screening will be preceded by some Acapulco-themed songs and a “cooking” demo of “vuelve a la vida” (come back to life), a ceviche style dish whose name is borrowed to title the film. No tastings during the event because of Covid-19, but everyone can take home a print out of the recipe and the playlist. [The film has English subtitles for the Spanish-speaking parts].

Pues aquí de nuevo, despidiéndonos de otro verano mamón (¿están de acuerdo conmigo?). Vamos a hacer de cuenta que un tiempo mejor existió, uno cerca del mar que muches de nosotres no podemos acceder por varias razones: pandemia global, pobreza, capitalismo tardío, el desarrollo exagerado de las zonas playeras y sus desigualdades estructurales. Esta noche es una invitación a viajar mediante nuestros ojos, nuestros oídos, y otros modos de sentir y experimentar, y regresar a la vida mientras vemos el documental de Carlos Hagerman, Vuelve a la vida. Este documental de 2010 trata sobre el legendario buceador Hilario Martínez, mejor conocido como Perro Largo, y sus enredos con un tiburón y con una modelo de la ciudad de Nueva York durante los años setenta en Acapulco. Antes de la proyección habrá música con onda acapulqueña y una demostración de cómo se prepara el cóctel Vuelve a la vida. Dado los protocolos de salubridad por Covid-19, no habrá pruebas, pero se podrán llevar la receta a casa así como una lista de la música que sonará. [La película cuenta con subtítulos en inglés para las partes habladas en español].

laura g. gutiérrez teaches and writes about Latinx and Mexican performance, art, and visual culture while holding a job at UT. born in a small town in durango, méxico, she migrated as a child to chicago, and the first time meeting the ocean—acapulco, guerrero—was in her late 20’s. but in her head has traveled to the golden age of Acapulco (i.e. 1970’s) many times.
