SXSW Electric Kool-Aid Mushroom Test

To celebrate the US premiere of Ron Mann's newest flick "Know Your Mushrooms", Mann and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema have literally cooked up a tasty treat for audiences . 

Calling it "The Electric Kool-Aid Mushroom Test", the Alamo will serve up slices of pizza topped with freshly picked wild mushrooms. The cultish director of "Grass" is also handing out kool-aid while playing music by the Flaming Lips. 

Wait, what kind of mushrooms are those again?

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema 320 E 6th St.
