On Friday, June 18, WFL! dove deep into the sequels, prequels, reboots and franchises that make summer so big, loud and fun. Then we pulled it in, and looked at the moments when summertime cinema wears its heart on its sleeve.

This week Mike and Dan docked the Whiskey Flicks Live! One Year at a Time… machine at its final port (for now) in 1997. We felt all the feels as we celebrated the exuberance of the year’s biggest blockbusters, but also took a detour into how queerness was being represented and explored in peak 90s cinema. See below for the complete playlist.
Up next in April: Whiskey Flicks Live! MIDNIGHT MADNESS!!!, a three part, unscripted, booze-infused deep dive into midnight movies, cult classics, and underground fan favorites with special guests Yeauxlanda Kay, Kyra Sims, and Cecil Baldwin.
This week the Whiskey Flicks Live! One Year at a Time…EXTENDED EDITION time machine hurled right to the heart of 1989, a crucial year for Mike and Dan as they watched the Berlin Wall crumble, entered high school, and leveled up on their film nerdery. Blockbusters, indie films, music vids…suddenly everything felt much more important. See below for the complete playlist.
Next week, we whisk away to 1997 (peak ’90s imho) and the last performance of our decade-hopping Extended Edition of One Year at a Time…
This week we hopped back into the Whiskey Flicks Live! One Year at a Time…EXTENDED EDITION time machine and bleep blop blooped back to 1976, where we explored a post-Vietnam, post-Watergate, pre-80s-and-all-that-came-with-it cinematic landscape. It was a year of movies haunted by the past but also looking tentative optimism toward the future. See below for a complete playlist of our Feb. 19 show.
Next, we Zoom forward (literally) to 1989. Join us Friday 2/26 at 8pm EST (which happens to be Dan’s birthday!) for some late 80s realness.
