Late Night TV Chaos Reigns this Monday at Ritz

Ultra-Rare NYC Public Access Madness Brought to us by the director of HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT!!

The most unbelievable public access hysteria your eyes can stand!! In the mid-’80s, Scott Lewis and Gary Winter produced a variety show that defied explanation with its corny skits, Hullaballoo-style dancers and punk bands who were definitely NOT lip-synching. Part vaudeville, part kids' show, and part musical extravaganza, THE SCOTT & GARY SHOW was unique in the annals of television history. It was the first (and only) show on the block to feature such unforgettable music performances as The Butthole Surfers on their first "trip" to New York, The Beastie Boys when they were still a hardcore band, a performance by Half Japanese that could almost be described as "tight"...and even an all-out brawl between the hosts and their guests, The Velvet Monkeys. MTV was never once this cool. This loving tribute to late night TV chaos was assembled by the director of HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT, Mr. Jeff Krulik!

Music Monday: THE SCOTT & GARY SHOW -  10:00 pm Mon, June 20 at Alamo Ritz. BUY TICKETS

Sponsored by Austin's greatest music store, End of an Ear Records, and Austin's most essential vintage furniture and decor store, Room Service.
