Episode 50 Live at San Francisco Sketchfest 2017.

For our live show we screened the cult classic "found footage" home movie Memorial Day 2000. Just a good clean video of Northern Michigan folks (Mike, Amy, Tom, and Kiersten) on vacation in a trailer setting things on fire, singing the Star-Spangled Banner, riding ATVs, throwing up, and having epic mudfights. Supposedly found as a VHS at a garage sale, Carly Ptak and Twig Harper (Nautical Almanac) sold the edited version through their website/noise label Heresee. It was discontinued at the request of the participants, but the legend lives on 16 years later. We talk about our own youthful indiscretions, Juggalos, Springer, Faygo, Warped Tour, sloppy joe tacos, Northern Cities Vowel Shift, what constitutes a documentary, camping fails, and much more. We even get to hear Paco play piano. Our esteemed panel included musician and radio host (Illogical Contraption) Cory Sklar (aka Chaki), comedians Melissa McQueen (Dorks Of Yore, Punching Henry), Frankie G (Killing My Lobster), and Emily Van Dyke.

Recorded Sunday January 29th at Pianofight.
