This week's Archive Diver brings you the billing for the Grove Cinema's Hi-Volt Video Niteclub from June 22 - 28, 1988. Live musical acts featured that week included SKUM, currently undergoing a cinematic resurgence through a locally produced documentary by a former band member.

The SKUM movie includes interviews with celebrities you wouldn't expect to know or give a shit about a Miami rock band from the 1980s, but some appearances include Jon Stewart, Traci Lords, Steven Bauer, Vince Neil (on a boat bitch!), Kevin Bacon, Bruce Hornsby, Uncle Luke, and many more. 

There seem to be no web records of the Hi-Volt Video Niteclub -- till now at least.

Here goes a trailer for the SKUM movie, and the full scan of the Hi-Volt Video Niteclub ad for that fateful week in 1988...
