Former The Onion writers Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher scour thrift stores across North America for old VHS tapes and round up the most random and awkward of what they find on these forgotten recordings into the videos you’ll see at this fun annual gathering. It’s mostly stuff so humorously weird, they couldn’t have made it up — like the video of a masked dancer performing for a group of confused senior citizens for an L.A. cable-access show, or the instructional ferret pet care video the team found in, that’s right, Columbus. Tickets are $10.
