VOTE CORKTOWN CINEMA

345 days ago

HOTT LAVA has a long & storied history with the folks behind CORKTOWN CINEMA, a Detroit cinematheque that used to be known as Burton Theater. After collaborating with Burton on HOTT LAVA 5, we went completely video starting with our co-hosted event, VHS METAL PIZZA where our program of shorts was called “the most divisive program to play Burton.”

After a litany of insane setbacks, Corktown Cinema is readying to open. Just recently, they’ve had the fortune of being selected as one of the top four potential businesses to receive tens of thousands of dollars(!) to use to finish construction & finally open.

There are three ways to vote & you can vote every day. Vote on the Hatch Detroit Facebook page or vote on the Hatch Detroit Website or vote in person at the community voting booth locations:

8/20: Eastern Market: 1pm – 3pm
8/21: Campus Martius: 12pm – 2pm
8/21: Grand Circus Park: 5pm – 7pm
8/22: Grandmont Rosedale Farmers Market: 4pm – 8pm
8/22: Bakers Lounge: 12pm – 2pm
8/24: Bike Tech: 2pm – 4pm
8/25: Hugh: 2pm – 4pm
8/25: Ye Olde Butcher Shoppe: 2pm – 4pm
8/29: Campus Martius – 11am – 3pm

Needless to say, we really want something great to happen for this incredible crew of people.

EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE X'S 2

350 days ago

We’re sorry. We know the last time EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE came to Oakland, some people weren’t very happy & that is terrible. But we got the opportunity to bring them back at the relatively new but still all spangly NEW PARKWAY theater & couldn’t resist. From the dog’s maw:

The foul-mouthed found footage Gods at Everything Is Terrible! have outdone themselves yet again! The psychedelic soldiers of the discarded VHS realm are back with not one, but two new movies, Comic Relief Zero! and Everything Is Terrible! Does The Hip-Hop! This will be insane!

So, what’s the deal with Comic Relief Zero!? Sit down and shut up, so we can tell you! But seriously folks, sit down and shut up, because those dumb-faced, giggle-grabbin’ goof-troupers at EIT! are dishing out a stand-up comedy special! This special is the opposite of special; featuring today’s hottest ventriloquists, racists, prop comics, sexists, impersonators, homophobes, and talk show hosts in their hate-filled prime! Are you oppressed and underrepresented in society? Well then, watch out! Let’s pull back the banana peel and take a head-first descent into the brick wall of our own mind! Take my life… please!

Wicka-wicka-what, you want more?! OK, 2 prove they’re still ‘with it’ and ‘urban,’ EIT! took the entire history of co-opted cool, and bashed it together into one continuous mix that will please your earballs and eyelobes. Can we B real 4 a sec? Everyone knows rap music is best when performed by whyte people promoting reasonably-priced hammed-burgers. This is the REAL birth of hip-hop! You know, kids rappin’ ‘bout stamps, and claymation doughboys spittin’ crescent roll rhymes! After EIT! Does The Hip-Hop!, you’ll never listen to music again! For various reasons! …And it don’t stop! Word!

Everything Is Terrible! is ashamed to bring you, Comic Relief Zero! and EIT! Does The Hip-Hop! The fur-covered, glitter-smothered gang from EIT! will bring all the costumed merriment that has made EIT! live shows (in)famous! Outrageously funny! Totally clean!

And we’re saying fuck it to power outages, oversold crowds, cat pee, used condoms, wandering junkies & doing TWO SHOWS at this ridiculous theater that actually has good food & drinks. It’s really euro in a way. Join us, won’t you?

EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE! LIVE! • 7 September 2013 • 10PM • The New Parkway Theater • 474 24th St, Oakland, CA • $10 • FBOOK: (EARLY SHOW) – http://on.fb.me/1btHHrF (LATE SHOW) – http://on.fb.me/14KKsG7

FIORUCCI MADE ME HARDCORE

351 days ago

Maybe we’re a little late to the game with the big news but what’s “LATE” when time itself no longer matters & everything in the world that has ever existed exists now, or will soon again, forever, always, etc. etc. Truth be told (and anyone that’s ever come to one of our events can attest), HOTT LAVA has never been interested in punctuality. We realize that “the cutting edge” as it were is just that: a fuggin’ blade, not a hand on a really fancy watch.

Case in point: the incredible Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore, a video created by British artist Mark Leckey (heads up & speaking of being out of time, that’s a link for his website: a MySpace page!!!). Holy Hannibal, is this what heaven looks like? The Guardian says it’s “perhaps the finest portrayal of British nightlife ever captured.” Arguing sucks — so we won’t argue! It’s a disjointed spell of video/sound touching on Northern Soul all-nighters at Wigan Casino up to Manchester raves with a really weird moment at an Ovaltine dance club(?) stuck in the middle.

In a real smooth move, Boomkat released a vinyl edition of the soundtrack in a limited edition of 500. Playing at 45rpms, it sounds fantastic & is just as spellbinding as when it’s coupled with the footage. WEIRD…but great! Unfortunately, Boomkat is sold out but Forced Exposure may still have copies.

Another smooth move: Leckey put up a bunch of his work at YouTube‎ and Vimeo for your perusal. Although visually less intriguing, The March of the Big White Barbarians has a pretty jammin’ score by Leckey’s band Jack Too Jack. As for Fiorucci, enjoy:
