Everything Is Terrible! and the Found Footage Festival
are perhaps two of the blog world's grandest purveyors of kitsch, both managing
to capitalize on the general public's appetite for cheese. But they
aren't lackadaisically posting episodes of Saved By The Bell.
Rather, they take some pride in their work by dredging up some
otherworldly clips that even the people who originally made them would
probably have a hard time believing. Coincidentally, both sites
have a traveling road show and both will be in the area on Saturday
night, in Providence and Boston, respectively.The
self-proclaimed "lovable internet monsters" behind Everything Is
Terrible! will be on hand at the Cable Car Cinema in Providence for
shows at 7 and 9:30pm. Their website boasts an impressive collection of
borderline creepy PSAs/news clips/remembrances of daytime television as
a youth and they'll most likely be digging deep into the VHS crates for
Saturday's show. Also, they seem to be advertising pizza, which is never a bad thing.

Following an appearance at the ROFLCon,
members of the Found Footage Festival will be taking over the Coolidge
Corner Theatre for a screening of "one of the worst sex comedies ever
made," Computer Beach Party. They'll be offering up MST3K-esque
live commentary, trivia games, and a number of other surprises. The
film doesn't get under way until 11:55pm, so if you're up for a night
of retro-induced LOLs and subsequent remorse for suspect fashion
choices you may or may not have made (we're not here to pass
judgement), you can try getting adventurous and hightailing it up to
Boston following the EIT! gig.
