THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with THREE DOG NIGHT! Once again, I'm enjoying the guilty pleasure of "Eli's Coming" with fellow fans of the late, lamented SportsNight. That, along with memories of The Service's cover of "Shambala" led me to compile a few more, including "Mama Told Me Not to Come," "Joy To The World," "One," "Liar," and "Celebrate."

JULIANA HATFIELD plays KEXP.

SORRY plays KEXP from Home.

JACOB COLLIER -- all four of him -- play a Tiny Desk Concert from Home.

THE NATIONAL, Live at Daytrotter in 2007. Includes a cover of the Psychedelic Furs' "Pretty In Pink."

 

DISCO DEMOLITION NIGHT: This weekend marks the anniversary of Disco Demolition Night, a promo event occurring during a scheduled twi-nite doubleheader between the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers that would prove to be the most ill-conceived promotional idea since the infamous "Ten Cent Beer Night" in Cleveland in 1974. It's now the subject of a book and this oral history at Chicago magazine.  Though some incorrectly think it had to do with racism, homophobia, etc., the event had much more to do with the fact that Chicago radio station WDAI forced out morning host Steve Dahl o­n Chirstmas Eve 1978, to switch to a disco format. A man who is cashiered wearing a Santa suit tends to carry a grudge. (Indeed, authentic Disco, as it had originated in predominantly black and gay clubs, had already died commercially -- but the genre later found its way onto the Top 40 in the wake of Saturday Night Fever as a trendy white phenomenon; Dahl's critics might consider whether that phase was a cultural apporpriation.) A few months later Dahl re-surfaced at WLUP with "Do You Think I'm Disco?" -- a parody of Rod Stewart's "Do You Think I'm Sexy?" with lyrics that targeted yuppie narcissism and materialism. He also did a bit where he pretended to blow-up disco records, which Mike Veeck, the son of Sox owner (and legendary showman) Bill Veeck, thought could be turned into a promotion in which admission was 98 cents (because WLUP was FM 98) for anyone who brought a disco record to be blown up between the two games. It was far more successful and less controllable than either Dahl or Veeck imagined, with young people storming the park to enter, creating a fog of marijuana smoke in the stands, sailing records like frisbees, throwing firecrackers and ultimately storming the diamond after the scheduled demolition had concluded and Dahl was en route to the announcer's booth for the second game. Footage of the event from from stellamasters, along with the aftermath at FuzzyMemories and this compilation of local news coverage from the night is pretty darned good, with cameos from Bill Kurtis and Greg Gumbel.
