Like one of those edgy boîtes too hip for a sign out front, The Show With No Name may be the best-kept secret in Austin. Those in the know tune in on Sunday nights to wise guy Charlie Sotelo's giddy pile-up of vintage video clips and forgotten movie trailers. Watching Charlie stare out in disbelief as he takes calls from fellow videophiles, precocious 10-year-olds, and crazy people is like having the wrong view at a freak show. Curated with an evolved eye for the absurd and arcane, the video quality may be ninth generation at times, but still tapeworthy, so load up a blank and enjoy.
