Oh, yeah? Pittsburgh Filmmakers was where I first encountered Ubu. The films used to be booked by this guy who'd play interesting albums before the show, and I had to ask one night what the amazing tune was. It turned out to be "Laughing." From the time period, though, we wouldn't have crossed paths...

Then there's the Five, Carsickness, the Cardboards, Dress Up As Natives.... I could go on, but I'll spare the list.
