Panning for gold

. October 23, 2012.

How could a 1980s how-to-care-for-your-ferret video not be awkwardly hilarious? And that's a taste of what the guys from The Found Footage Festival — which screens at the Michigan Theater on Wednesday, November 14 — have up their sleeves. Joe Pickett (The Onion) Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) host — in person — this unique assembly of old, embarrassing VHS tapes that were found on the street, at a garage sale or a thrift shop. Just hope mom and dad didn't sell that music video you made in 6th grade.

$11. 9:15pm. Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8397. www.michtheater.org. —SR
