Williamsburg's Rough Trade NYC gets a totally '90s Empire Records makeover

Jillian Anthony

If you've ever muttered the words "Oh Rexy, you're so sexy!" you know all about Rex Manning Day, and the fabulously '90s cult flick that spawned its creation. Join your pals Liv Tyler and Renee Zellweger for an evening with your angsty teen friends at record store and venue Rough Trade NYC, which will be transformed into Empire Records April 8 and 9. Throw on your fuzzy blue sweater and grab your couch cushion for a party where you can make custom buttons, buzz your head at the shaving station and hear a set from the house band before the film screening. You'll even get an autographed Rex Manning photo of your own to worship!

If you've ever thought gluing pennies to the floor was art or held a fake funeral for one of your friends, this night is for you! And remember, like the hopeful Mark (Ethan Embry) said, "We mustn't dwell. No, not today. We can't. Not on Rex Manning day!" Get your tickets ($42 including one drink) right here starting Feb 20.
