Atomic Doomsday Battle of the DJs: 78 record vs 16mm film!!
Date: Wednesday, April 13th
Time: 7pm
Admission: $10
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY.

What records will you listen to in your 1950s cold war atomic bomb shelter to pass the time while the clawing sound from the neighbors and their children outside the locked steel door grows fainter as the nuclear fallout settles in? You've got some time to relax now -- some good, long radiation half-life type of time! -- let's play some music on the old record player!

While Ethan Crenson and "Movie Mike" Olshan collect an array of 78 records and 16mm films respectively, it is the special niche of atomic bomb songs and fallout shelter films that will be presented as a "Battle Of The DJs" matchup: an Atomic Doomsday melee between groove and sprocket, with an assortment of anecdote and insight from the two collectors providing the context of cold war history and red scare paranoia of the postwar period. Expect to encounter that dementedly optimistic End Times bunker building suburban all-American family unconcernedly making sensible plans for surviving nuclear armageddon; hear the tuneful odes to the doomsday weapon sung in country twang, the folk-singer's plaintive warnings of unleashing a power better left to the Lord, Sputnik-fixated crooners, and swingin' bomb shelter preparedness diddys.

A taste of what's in store can be gleaned from the titles that may come into the fore in the duel between 16mm film and 78rpm record: "Jesus Is God's Atomic Bomb," "Survival Under Atomic Attack," "Life in a Fallout Shelter," "When the Hell Bomb Falls," "Civil Defense March," and "Sputnik (Satellite Girl)."

 Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is canceled.
