The Nightingale, the Reader's choice for best alternative film venue, is back from hiatus with Sonic Orphans: Lost Music Films 1965-1987, a selection of music shorts shot or found by Los Angeles documentarian and photographer Bill Daniel.

The program includes 1965 news footage of Beatlemania sweeping San Francisco, 1977 performance footage of The Avengers, a 1980 show by Austin punk bands The Huns and Boy Problems, a 1986 clip of Sonic Youth performing in Houston, and footage from a 1987 Butthole Surfers show that Daniel says was "confiscated by the club for on-stage nudity, then inexplicably returned to me months later," plus a Johnny Cash kinoscope and "probably some other curious."

The Blue Ribbon Glee Club, in which Nightingale programmer Christy LeMaster sings, performs after the screening.

It's Sunday at 7 p.m. at 1084 N. Milwaukee. $7-10.
