Guerilla Drive-Ins, MacGuffins, and a sample from our new EP...



We've teamed up with our friends at West Chester's own Guerilla Drive-In to create their new MacGuffin message!

MacGuffin message? Well, to explain: The Guerilla Drive-In hosts "guerilla" style drive-in movies. They are "Guerilla" in the sense that they are unannounced and unpredictable except to those priveledged few who are GDI members. How do you become a GDI member? You need to FIND THE MACGUFFIN!

The MacGuffin is an AM transmitter, wired to an ex-Retropod Sony Sports Walkman, playing a continuous-loop answering machine cassette, all stuffed inside a weatherproof Pelican case. The MacGuffin broadcasts a short message on AM 1700. The message contains the secret access code you need to find out where and when Guerilla Drive-In movies will be shown.

Sounds fun to me!

Anyways, the Spinto Band has provided the background music for the current MacGuffin. It's a sample of our cover of "Brazil" that will be appearing on the next EP. In addition to that, we've also included a secret MESSAGE within a MESSAGE especially for Spinto Band fans. If you'd like to hear it, you need to go searching through the woods of West Chester, PA.

Or you could go to the Guerilla Drive-In website...

Or maybe even BoingBoing!

Regardless, the Guerilla Drive-In is an amazing institution we're happy to take be apart of...as long as it makes us all GDI members!

I guess this is just another one of those times when it would really pay off to be living in West Chester. And believe me there are plenty of them!

I went to the MacGuffin's secret location yesterday and it was transmitting, but I don't think it was playing your message. I heard no traces of Brazil nor any mention of Spintonic Industries. However, I did follow the directions to get the special bonus "Z" prefix for my GDI number.

I am super psyched for the drive-in on Friday!
