Only at the Alamo: Super Happy Fun Monkey Bash Sugoi

Alamo Drafthouse's ninth Super Happy Fun Monkey Bash is 90 minutes of alternately amazing and baffling Japanese television and pop-culture content. Assembled from Alamo founder Tim League's extensive collection of DVDs purchased while he was in Japan and coordinated by Tommy Swenson, the show features "cruel and inhumane game shows, oodles of oddly timed nudity, people bouncing around in foam-rubber costumes, adorable pets, ads for bizarre anti-flatulence products, bawdy situation comedies featuring actors spouting nonsensical English phrases and American stars picking up easy yen by shilling in Japanese commercials," according to Swenson. It's a total expression of gonzo art drawing on the wackiest works from the land of the rising sun.

7:30 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse/Mason, 531 South Mason. For information, call 281-492-6900 or visit drafthouse.com/houston. $5.
Mon., Sept. 30, 7:30 p.m., 2013
