Elmhurst History Museum

  1. Disco Demolition: The Night Disco Died

    July 1, 2017, All Day

    It started as an off-beat baseball promotion called “Teen Night” designed to sell tickets at Comiskey Park and gain listeners for a fledgling FM radio station—until it devolved into one of the most infamous events in Chicago’s rich baseball history. Disco Demolition Night exploded on July 12, 1979 in the middle of a White Sox doubleheader and it remains one of the city’s most controversial sports history moments. Inspired by the book by Steve Dahl with journalist Dave Hoekstra and photographer Paul Natkin, the exhibit uses video footage, artifacts, interviews, memorabilia, and photographs by Natkin to examine the culture, the music, and the conflict that came to a head on a warm summer night when the wheels came off a promotion—and disco met its demise. Media sponsor: WLUP-FM Location: Elmhurst History Museum, 120 E. Park Ave., Elmhurst Hours: Sun., Tues.–Fri., 1-5 p.m.; Sat. 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Admission: FREE More info: or 630-833-1457
