FREE!  FREE!  FREE!  FREE!

Record Store Day is already like Second Christmas to us.  It's a great day to get new music, as well as support your Mom and Pop Record Shop.  Shuffle Function will be at Tune Town playing Shuffle Function Radio Roulette LIVE in the store, providing the awesome/regrettable soundtrack to this celebratory day.

But now... Record Store Day just got bigger.  We are having a special Record Store Day Grind-Fu Double feature that has been assembled especially for the music geeks in the audience.  That evening we will be screening Jandek On Corwood, as well as VINYLMANIA: When Life Runs At 33 Revolutions Per Minute.


JANDEK ON CORWOOD (2003)

 Jandek On Corwood is a gateway documentary.  It sucked me into the world of Jandek, at which point I went out and bought everything that was ever released on Corwood.  That number has grown by about 20 titles in only 9 years, and I've long since given up on trying to keep up.  But the music grabbed hold of me, and now we feature him during every Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A Go Go.  This is a haunting and mysterious film, and it will probably leave you with more questions than before you saw it, but that's just because you'll want to know even more.

 VINYLMANIA (2011)


What could be more appropriate for Record Store Day than a documentary about record collectors?  A documentary about record collectors being shown on the same night as Jandek On Corwood, that's what!

GRIND-FU CINEMA IS FREE!

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