Off-Center Lonely Island
Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island crew are headed to Austin for Off-Centered Film Fest
The Alamo Drafthouse and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are joining forces again to present the Off-Centered Film Festival on April 24 - 26. Celebrating great beer and kick-ass movies, this year's special guests will only add to the awesomeness.
The Lonely Island, the trio behind comedy masterpieces “I’m on a Boat,” “Lazy Sunday,” and the Emmy Award-winning “Dick in a Box,” will appear for two special events to rock your mustaches off at OCFF.
For the uninitiated, The Lonely Island is a musical comedy troupe consisting of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer. They created the highly popular “Digital Shorts” music videos on Saturday Night Live that featured various parodies and superstar guests like Lady Gaga, Akon, T. Pain, Natalie Portman and many others.
The Lonely Island will host a screening of the trio's cult hit Hot Rod at an outdoor Rolling Roadshow at Republic Square Park on April 24. The screening will feature an interview with the gang, and guests will also enjoy treats from Austin food trucks and rare brews from 20 Texas breweries.
Tickets are available for the more intimate show, “An Evening with The Lonely Island” on Friday, April 25. At this event, the gang will host a clip show featuring the early days of their comedy careers as well as new material. It’s a rare treat for fans of the three fake rappers who helped return SNL to prominence in the past decade.
Other fun combinations of off-kilter events are planned for the film festival, including a screening of the Jackie Chan classic Drunken Master paired with a five-course, Asian-inspired dinner. Other films include Stunt Rock, a rare 1978 film starring legendary stuntman Grant Page, Harold Lloyd’s iconic silent film Safety Last, and the three winners of OCFF’s short film contest.
Tickets are currently on sale on the Drafthouse website.
