In Minute 47 of The Whole Shebang, Mike and Jenny talk about the early years of funk thanks to the appearance of The Mighty Hannibal on the soundtrack, how funk and go-go music fed into the coming wave of disco in the late ‘70s, the dress code at the Sombrero Club’s party and how white and silver also prefigure the coming space/glam age, Jenny’s love of a glam Christmas, how the party is reminiscent of Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball in 1966, the Rothschild Surrealist Ball in 1972, and the Goblin King’s Ball in 1986, the gauzy filter that’s used for Mandy’s flashbacks, and Jack Fairy’s epic entrance into the party and how there is an equivalence between Brian trying to meet Mandy and trying to meet Jack.
