Variety Pack premiered its latest video venture last night, The Leak.Â Featuring several of Salt Lake City’s most beloved up-and-comers, it’s a fun 15 minutes full of familiar faces.
Variety Pack’s Eddie Grams hosted a little pre-showing barbecue at his house where plenty of local heads were in attendance. With springtime temps and dustbowl 2010, it was a fun afternoon of hanging out with a lot of fun people all excited to see the fruits of their labor. Marty Siller put it post succinctly, “a video premier is like 12 of your friends all having a birthday on the same day.”
A quick drive up to the University of Utah’s Fine Arts Auditorium presented a crowded hall, filled with eager eyes and ears.Â Everyone was here for one reason, so who needs a big introduction? The movie started playing without much warning and showcased the likes of Sean Black, Parker Duke, Ben Farrell, Matty Mo, Brandon Hammid, Alex Andrews, Ted Borland and more cameos than you can throw a tallboy at.
Afterward, it was back to Eddie’s house for a few games of beer pong before heading out to everyone’s favorite Tuesday night hangout the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars for those uneducated ones) for cheap beers, cheap pool and more beer pong.
