Gil Mantera’s Party Dream

Too many people’s fascination with the ’80s manifests itself in the occasional lame ’80s-themed dance party, complete with Hypercolor shirts and stirrup pants. (Or are those cool again?) Gil Mantera’s Party Dream lives in ’80s party mode but amps up the dirty, filthy, sexy qualities of the neon decade that so often get forgotten. Synths, pulsing drum machines, vocoders and the occasional hot-lick guitar solo help make a GMPD show part male burlesque, part exercise video, part Dungeons & Dragons convention — in other words, 200 hit points radder than that vintage Alf shirt you just scored on eBay.
