UPCOMING (Sat. May 28): Trip Metal Fest: EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE screening/performance at Cinema Detroit

Once a millennium, something emerges from the darkest corner of the universe and enlightens us to the true meaning of being. Something so mystickal, so magickal, and so mind-splitting that all concepts before its existence sounds stupid and boring. 
Of course, we are talking about Everything Is Terrible!  
The Legends show is a culmination of the first seven (of 777) years of work from the video alchemists at EIT! These mindfreaks have taken thousands of forgotten VHS tapes, chewed them up, and spit them back to their young via daily website postings, six movies, and world tours. In that time, they’ve exposed us to wonders such as massaging cat ladies, apocalyptic facial exercises, pizzas parties in hell, and our immortal party-god, Duane. Nobody could have predicted the cultural, psychological, and illuminating impact EIT! would have on our consciousness, but seeing all their greatest works chronicled in one place reminds us that in the right hands, garbage can be turned into gold! It is time pack up your copies of Jerry Maguire and accept the fact that your life up until this moment has been pointless.  
Trip Metal Fest presents EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE!
Sat, May 28 – Two shows ONLY – Tickets $12
7:00 p.m. – Doors @ 6:45 p.m. – Get tickets online
9:00 p.m. – Doors @ 8:45 p.m. – Get tickets online
Tickets will also be available at the Cinema Detroit box office on the day of the show only.
Cinema Detroit is located at 4126 Third Street, Detroit, Michigan 48201
