WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Spider-Man: Far From Home repeats atop the chart with 45.3MM on a 51 percent drp from the three-day portion of its debut. Domestically, this film sits at 275MM, wich is more than the two Andrew Garfield movies combined. It's also running ahead of Homecoming, with a domestic total of 375MM being a fairly solid guess for its total domestic run. The current worldwide grossapproaches 875MM.  Toy Story 4 places with 20.7MM on a 39 percent drop in its fourth frame; it could top out at roughly 420MM, if The Lion King remake does not stomp on it too much this upcoming weekend.  The debut of Crawl shows with 12MM against a 13.5MM budget, so this well-reviewed horror flick willlikely wind up in the black.  The debut of Stuber takes the fourth slot with 8MM against a reported 16MM budget, a reflection of tough days for big-screen comedies in the streaming era.  But Yesterday rounds out the Top Five with 6.8MM on a 33 percent drop; it has grossed 80MM worldwide with an appeal to older audiences and Beatles fans of all ages.

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."

BRIAN ENO advance streams For All Mankind.

WEYES BLOOD visits WFUV's Studio A.

THE LION KING soundtrack is online.

THE MOUNTAIN GOATS share "Sentries In The Ambush" and "Divided Sky Lane."

BON IVER shares "Jelmore" and "Faith."

DISCO DEMOLITION NIGHT: Today is 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, Disco, as it had originated in predominantly black and gay clubs, wad already died commercially -- it had exploded 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. 

DURAN DURAN will perform a special show commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, July 16th at the Rocket Garden at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. Was Pink Floyd unavailable?
