It's time to get excited, Nerds! Rifftrax is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and they're really kicking out the jams with their plans. Right now they have a Kickstarter going to raise money for a big event that will take place in Minneapolis in June, as well as for two other events they'll have this year. You'll probably want to throw in for this.
On June 28th Rifftrax is going to have a live event at the State Theater in Minneapolis, and several Mystery Science Theater 3000 alumni will be joining them. Right now the confirmed guests will be Trace Beaulieu (Dr. Clayton Forrester, Crow T. Robot), Frank Conniff (TVs Frank), Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester), and Bridget Nelson (Mr. B Natural), and they're hoping to get a few more. It'd be amazing if Joel Hodgson could be there, as well as any of the new MST3K cast, but the party is shaping up nicely. They'll be doing an evening of short films (a favorite feature of both MST3K and Rifftrax) with participation from the folks joining them. They're also raising money for a May 5th event featuring the film Time Chasers, a classic from MST3K episode from season eight, as well as two other events to take place later in the year.
As is the case with things of this nature, there's a bunch of really cool stuff available as thank you gifts for helping out. Swing by the Rifftrax site and do your part, Misties!
