What About Bob Ray?
Helping to keep Austin weird for years now, Bob Ray has a flair for capturing the everyday dramatic. Just look at Total Badass, a psychological treat chronicling the life and times of one man's search for redemption through pills, whiskey, weed, family, and rock n roll. Or Hell On Wheels, the award-winning documentary that details, from the trenches, the rebirth of all-girl roller derby in Texas and the bone-crushing contention that begat the modern-day leagues across the nation. Then there are the hilariously weird animated shorts, Apesh!t and Platypus Rex, and mind-blowing soundtracks from such luminaries as ...And You Will Know Us by The Trail Of Dead, Nashville Pussy, and Mogwai.
But since dude lives in Texas, how we gonna check out these celluloid spoils? Well, dont worry your pretty little head, because Bob Ray's Down & Dirty Austin Film Tour which will feature many of these flicks we just gabbed about hits Madcap Theaters.
