For 23 straight Saturday nights in 1982, The Chicago Party variety show was broadcast on Chicago’s hometown UHF station WCIU, showcasing Spandex, Southside fly guys, tender tenderonies, magicians, contortionists, prismatic video gimmickry, and lip-synched singles by a rising regime of local post-disco casualties. Intrepid archival record label Numero Group has uncovered the footage, and in conjunction with the release of the box-set Ultra-High Frequencies: The Chicago Party, BAMcinématek partners with Berg’n to present a special screening celebrating this priceless time capsule of 80s nightlife. Followed by Numero Group DJ set.
