To be a well-rounded plump cinephile, big cinema screens and Blockbuster adventures must be complemented with indie venues and art- flick experiences. And lets take this once step further: Both those must further be complemented with finding yourself in not-a-theater but hip digs, watching subcultural documentaries that are accompanied by live music sets. You have two chances to catch this type of show: Friday at Radio-Active Records and Saturday at the brand-spanking-new venue Collide Factory in FAT Village when film splicer and dicer and documentarian Bill Daniel teams up with Mr. Entertainment and the Pookiesmackers. First, we take you to Radio-Active (1930B E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Here, on Friday, this record store will show lost music clips ranging from 1965 to 1987 called Sonic Orphans. On 16mm film, youll see rare rock n roll footage of bands such as Sonic Youth, the Beatles, the Butthole Surfers, Boy Problems, Huns, and Avengers. Before Sonic Orphans, Mr. Entertainment and the Pookie- smackers will perform a punk set and, to add some flavor to the film, will interact during it. Daniel (billdaniel.net) will also display some of his original photography thats for sale. The show is free donations are gladly accepted and starts at 8:30 p.m. Call Radio-Active at 954-762-9488, or visit radio-active-records.com.
On Saturday, to help find the Collide Factory (541 NW First Ave., Fort Lauderdale), search out Maguires Hill 16 on Andrews Boulevard and then locate Iron Forge Press (First Avenue); Collide Factory is right next door. Depending on what route you take, theres a great chance youll pass railroad tracks on your way to Collide the reason this spot was chosen for Saturdays film Who Is Bozo Texino? This documentary about the secret history of hobo graffiti has a train theme, and this venue is right on the Florida East Coast Railway line. To coincide with the theme, the Pookiesmackers will perform a hobo train set. Once again, the show is free, but donations are gladly accepted because as the frontman of the Pookiesmackers, Mr. Entertainment himself, Steven Toth writes we need to get Bill Daniel some traveling money. The night start at 8:30 p.m. Call Collide Factory at 888-590-8880, or visit thecollidefactory.com.
