Sourced from bankrupted video stores, forgotten attic corners, and soggy cardboard boxes, Nitehawk’s VHS Vault Archive is a collection of digitally preserved weird, rare and out there VHS of public access oddities, art docs, bootleg concerts, and grimeball horror flicks — all told it’s a bloody mess of man-eating brains, killer cops and quite a lot of naked people.
LO-RES WRESTLING WEDNESDAY
Ring the bell and kick out the jams! The belt’s on the line and we’re feelin’ fine! Every month we’re hosting a night of music and low quality video featuring the best professional wrestling bootlegs from Nitehawk’s VHS Vault and music from WFMU DJ Paul Bruno.
