KMSU PRESENTS THE BLIND SHAKE ON JULY 9th!


KMSU Presents
THE BLIND SHAKE
with Weakwick and Rhythmaplex

Saturday, July 9th
The What's Up Lounge
701 Riverfront Drive, Mankato, MN

$5 cover! Starts at 8:30!

This show is gonna rock.  KMSU presents The Blind Shake, with guests Weakwick and Rhythmaplex, on Saturday, July 9th, at the What's Up Lounge!  The cover is only five bucks, too, so you don't have to sweat much.  Let's rephrase that:  You're gonna be sweating A TON because this show will rock!

The Blind Shake have been touring the world, and they will finally be making their way to Kato!  The City Pages named them the best live band in Minneapolis, too, so it stands to reason that this rule could apply to this town, if only for one night.  SF Weekly describes the band as "at once spacey, primitive futuristic, and brutal: a kind of backyard extraterrestrial minimal surf-punk party.  One Guitar, one baritone guitar, a f**kload of reverb, and a drummer who deserves an Olympic Medal."

SOUND GOOD TO US!



Weakwick is an explosive noice-rock duo from Minneapolis, whose racket provides a fresh-faced update on classic Midwestern scuzz previously heard from labels like Amphetamine Reptile and Touch and Go Records.  Their new album just came out, so the timing is right for their sound to be unleashed on Mankato ears.



Rhythmaplex is making a rare appearance, and they always deliver.  They bring an amazing detuned garage clank to the show, PLUS, they feature KMSU's Edgar Burn from the MN Music Network!



This is going to be a show for the ages.  You know how you hate it when you miss a show and people tell you how great it was?  Don't let that happen again! Join us for an explosive night of music!

SEE THE FIRST CASE LANG VEIRS CONCERT RIGHT NOW!


Case Lang Veirs is one of those "super group" projects that makes you nod your head in agreement, because it makes total sense.  All three women are great songwriters and performers, and their voices sound great together.  Have you heard it yet?  I'M LISTENING TO IT RIGHT NOW!  It's so good, you guys.

CLV... WAIT!  That sounds too Emerson Lake and Palmer-y.  Case Lang Veirs will be playing at the Minnesota Zoo on August 10th, but if you can't wait for that show you can watch them on the interwebs!  NPR filmed their first ever live performance, and they do the entire album, so you no longer have an excuse for not listening.

I can't find an embed code for the video, so click the photo below and enjoy!

THE JULY GRIND-FU CINEMA GIVES YOU AN OFFER YOU CAN'T REFUSE!

The Godfather photo tumblr_ld62j6Dj1D1qcnhhzo1_500.gif

Grind-Fu Cinema presents

THE GODFATHER (1:00 PM)
and
THE GODFATHER PART II (7:00 PM)

Saturday, July 23rd
Wiecking 220 Auditorium
Minnesota State University, Mankato

FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE!

Grind-Fu Cinema has got something special for you for July!  It's more than just a double feature.  This time it's a SAGA.  A SPRAWLING SAGA.  And it's completely free.  Check another one off the Grind-Fu Bucket list!


The Godfather (1972)
Directed by Francis Ford Coppola

If you've never seen it, you can't understand why it's so hard to talk about The Godfather without sounding hyperbolic.  It is, quite simply, one of the greatest films ever made.  The American Film Institute ranks it second on their top 100 films of all time list, behind Citizen Kane.  It won the Oscar for Best Picture - Drama, Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Original Score.  It also won five Golden Globes, setting a record that has yet to be beaten.

This is a kick ass film.

We haven't even gotten to the acting:  Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, James Caan, John Cazale, Sterling Hayden, and about a thousand character actors that own the screen.  The story is epic, the tone is perfect, the everything is spectacular.  Don't miss this film.



We will be showing The Godfather at 1:00 PM and it will run until about 4:00 PM.  This will give you plenty of time to recover and get back by seven for the next incredible feature.


The Godfather Part II (1974)
Directed by Francis Ford Coppola

People love the first Godfather film, but there are many out there that declare that The Godfather part II is even better.  It's hard to argue with them, because both films are so incredible. It won six Oscars, including Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Art Direction, Best Original Score - Drama, and it was the first sequel to win for Best Picture.  Again, not too shabby.

Part II not only takes us to the next stage of the Corleon saga, but it delves into its origins.  The story is sprawling, and the movie clocks in at 3 1/2 hours.  A fast and compelling 3 1/2 hours. Pacino gives what could be his greatest on screen performance, and the cast ads Robert DeNiro as a young Vito Corelone, the founder of the Corleone family.  Yet again, not too shabby.



If you're a movie fan, you don't want to miss this Grind-Fu!  If you've never seen them on the big screen, then you can't afford to miss out.  If you've never seen either of these movies, then you need to right a serious wrong.  These are two of the greatest films ever made, and your life as a movie geek is not complete until you've seen them.  Also, you can see them FOR FREE!  Bring your friends, snacks, dress in layers (because it can get chilly) and get ready for an amazing colossal day of films.  You won't regret it.

I'm the new boy in town!  Where can I go?

HOT SCREAMING HOLY GRAIL! MORE FOOTAGE FROM THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED HAS SURFACED!


THIS IS INCREDIBLE.

In the world of legendary unreleased media, one of the most legendary - maybe THE most legendary - objects of obsession is Jerry Lewis' film The Day the Clown Cried.  If it wasn't for the existence of scripts and set photos, the movie could almost be an urban legend.  It was supposed to be Jerry's masterpiece, but instead it was buried in his vault for the past 45 years.

What is it about this film that has made it the most desired unobtainable film in history?  Mainly, it's the subject matter.  Distilled to the most simple explanation, it shows Jerry Lewis as a clown in a concentration camp, where he ultimately leads the children to their death in the gas chamber.

Yeah.

Only a handful (if that) of people over the years have seen this film, but the most vocal person to see it is Harry Shearer.  Shearer explained that it's as"if you flew down to Tijuana and suddenly saw a painting on black velvet of Auschwitz.  You'd just think 'My God, wait a minute!  It's not funny, and it's not good, but somebody's trying too hard in the wrong direction to convey this strongly held-feeling." Lewis himself, after decades of angrily refusing to discuss the film, finally admitted during a Q&A that the movie would never see the light of day because it simply wasn't good and he's embarassed by it.



We've gone on about this film for years on Shuffle Function, constantly scouring the web for more and more information, and it was pretty much a dead end until the past few years, when footage from the set slowly started to trickle out on YouTube.  First it was behind the scenes footage, and then an interview from the period with Jerry discussing his hopes for the project.  Each sliver of video was incredible to see, simply because this is something that wasn't meant to be seen.  Maybe the film would never be seen in our lifetime, but these fragments gave us a sense that this is, in fact, a real thing.

Last year it was revealed that the Library of Congress acquired the Jerry Lewis archives, and it was revealed in an almost offhanded comment, that this included a print of The Day the Clown Cried.  The catch is that it couldn't be screened until the year 2024.  Again, it's STILL something that many of us may not see in our lifetime, but we now knew that the film is in the hands of an archive that could potentially do something with it.

Today, the unbelievable has hit the internet.  Thirty minutes of footage has surfaced.  THIRTY MINUTES OF ACTUAL EDITED FOOTAGE. It appears to be drawn from a 2016 German documentary called "Der Clown".  How did we never hear about this?  What adds even more excitement to the documentary is that it features Jerry Lewis' first extensive interview on the project in over 40 years.  But enough about that.  HOW'S THE FOOTAGE?

What you'll see isn't anywhere close to complete, and occasionally title cards will be inserted to give a sense of context.  The footage is presented in chronological order, so you have a basic idea of what is happening. The thing that is most compelling is that footage was shot recently with the same (much older) actors from the film to pad out the missing sections.  It's very intense, and the bed music they add to the scenes is haunting.  While it is shocking to even see this footage, it's all the more shocking because it includes what has been widely reported as the final footage of the film.  You just need to watch it.  It's crazy stuff.

Seeing this footage in this context presents The Day the Clown Cried in a more palatable context, so it probably takes quite a bit of edge off the so-wrong-and-it-gets-more-wrong that the movie reportedly has in full.  Does it diminish the legend of the film?  Absolutely not.  If anything, the added proof that the film is out there makes it larger.  Furthermore, if these bits and pieces are floating around, it makes one wonder how much longer it'll be before even more makes its way out into the world.

Watch this now, because who knows how much longer it'll be available?  At the same time, the Internet always finds a way...

YO LA TENGO AND AESOP ROCK JOIN FORCES TO ROCK FACES!


This is pretty cool!  Aesop Rock made his television debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and his backing band was a little group that goes by the name of Yo La Tengo!  We've been known to play YLT on the show (you may have noticed) and we've played Aesop Rock when he's with with Hail Mary Mallon.  Together they're like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of music!

MICHAELSHIP HAS ITS PRIVILEGES!


Did you guys hear Jenny on this morning's show?  Fun birthday playlist, huh?  You may remember Jenny from Intergalactic Bacon Day 2016, when she came up and made custom shaved ice for us, courtesy of Gypsy Ice.  She even created three custom flavors for the day, which was pretty awesome of her.

Via Gypsy Ice we have a real live benefit to being a card carrying Michael of the Michael MiMcDonald Society of Silver Fox Impersonators (Takin' it to the streets since 2014)! If you swing by the Gypsy Ice stand at the Farmer's Market outside the St Peter Food Co-op and Deli, you can actually order the three custom Shuffle Function flavors: Lookee Here, My Boy Shyboy, and Legendary Stardust Sunrise!  PLUS, if you show your Michaelship card you can get a medium sized shaved ice for the price of a small!

Gypsy Ice has lots of great flavors, but the Shuffle Function flavors are fancy off the menu treats made if requested.  SUPER ELITE TREATS, YOU GUYS! Never leave home without your Michaelship card!
