The revamped Parkway Theater’s speaker series has been excellent right out of the gate, and considering Twincy’s devoted genre-fandom, tonight’s presentation by the iconic late-night drive-in personality Joe Bob Briggs is particularly on-brand—for us and for him. In his signature gonzo-style, the famed horrorthon host will unpack the history of the American Redneck through the lens of grindhouse and mainstream films, delving into topics like the existential difference between Forrest Gump and Sling Blade and why the redneck is the scariest monster in all of film history (true!). Friday, November 30th, 7 PM. $20 advance, $25 door.Nic Vetter
