KABF FILM SERIES
8 p.m., Market Street Theater. $5.

Long a paragon for independent culture and art in the community (but one that had, in recent years, neglected its ties), local radio station KABF (88.3 FM) continues its recent run of hosting killer parties. Friday marks the kickoff of a bi-monthly film series that KABF will co-host with Market Street Cinema. All films will be music or radio related and will be accompanied by live performances and some kind of art component. “24 Hour Party People,” the 2002 biopic of Tony Wilson, the journalist, club owner and head of Factory Records, leads the series. Starring Steve Coogan, who’s spot-on as Wilson, and directed by Michael Winterbottom, the film is a fascinating look back at Manchester, England, in the ’80s, home to one of the most concentrated, vibrant musical explosions ever. Joy Division, New Order and the Happy Mondays all make appearances. Prior to the film, which starts at 10 p.m., DJ Jamatron will cut it up in the lobby, where beer and art will be on sale. At 9 p.m., lovable garage punks the Bloodless Cooties appear. They’ve terrorized the stage, dredging up obscure covers and then mauling them beyond recognition, for more than a decade. Proceeds from the all-ages event go to benefit KABF.
