The Post-postgame Show, with Jon Pratt and the Winter Dance Party   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

THE BIG GAME slowed the "news" to a trickle, but Things:

JON PRATT: Pate's frontman plays a new song, "Quittin' Time" on yet another vintage guitar.

THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED.  It's 60 winters later, but the passing of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson in a plane crash outside Clear Lake, IA is still bringing people to the historic Surf Ballroom, as well as the Riverside Ballroom, where the Winter Dance Party made its penultimate stop. So it's worth linking to an MPR audio feature on the Winter Dance Party and a Weekend Edition piece on Buddy Holly's old classmates.. We'll start with sove video of Buddy Holly playing "That'll Be the Day," and "Peggy Sue."  There's even less video of Valens, outside this lipsync of "Ooh, My Head!", but there's rare live audio of "La Bamba" and "Donna" on the Tube. And no survey would be complete without the Bopper's signature song, "Chantilly Lace."  The tragedy has echoed through the years in movies like The Buddy Holly Story and La Bamba.  The latter featured Los Lobos, who would make "La Bamba" a hit again almost 30 years later, with Marshall Crenshaw as Holly, who can be seen here covering "Crying, Waiting Hoping", introduced by Wolfman Jack.  BONUS: The Current reports on the Hily Rocka Rollaz playing the Surf Ballrooom over the weejkend. The band's frontman, Mark Flora, is an Iowa State alum who fronted a band called The Law at the same time Pate was a going concern. I also wrote record reviews for him when he was the Arts & Entertainment editor for the Iowa State Daily. It's a small world, after all.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Glass threepeats atop the chart with 9.5MM on a 50 percent drop that could have been worse on the Big Game weekend.It's lagging its predecessor, Split, by about 10MM, but already in the black on a 20MM production budget. The Upside places with 8.9MM on a leggy 6 percent drop. The debut of Miss Bala shows with 6.7MM against a 15MM budget; the poor reviews likely stopped this from becoming a truly effective bit of counter-programming. Aquaman hangs onto the fourth spot with another 4.8MM on a 34 percent drop. Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse rounds out the Top Five with another 4.4MM on a 28 percent drop. The superheroes will probably fade once the LEGO Movie 2 and Alita: Battle Angel arrive over the next couple of weekends. Meanwhile, I must note that Peter Jackson's WWI documentary, They Shall Not Grow Old, landed in tenth place with 2.4MM on about 725 screens; its 10.7MM US total to date suggests it just might beat out the domestic gross for Mortal Engines, which Jackson co-wrote.

TRAILER BOWL: The Big Game brought trailers for Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Us, Hobbs & Shaw, Alita: Battle Angel, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. But the one for Game of Thrones beat all of them.

THE DGA AWARDS went to these folks. Congrats!
