The Library of Congress presents
Gloria Gaynor Life: Disco Dance Party
SATURDAY MAY 6, 2017
In association with Brightest Young Things and The Recording Academy
The Library of Congress opens the doors of the Thomas Jefferson Building for Gloria Gaynor Live: Disco Dance Party, a celebration of disco culture, music, dance and fashion, as told by the national collections. Gloria Gaynor and her band kick off the night with a one-night-only show commemorating the induction of "I Will Survive" into the Library of Congress National Recording Registry. After the concert, dance the night away to DJ Mike Simonetti and DJ Adrian Loving in one of the nation's architectural marvels, explore the Library's unrivaled collections with a special collections display in the Main Reading Room and special exhibitions, practice your Silent Disco skills, and celebrate America's national library in style. Attendees are invited to wear Disco or 1970s attire.
In, addition to the day-long Library of Congress Symposium on Disco, we welcome photographer Bill Bernstein to DC to discuss his critically acclaimed book Disco: The Bill Bernstein Photographs (Reel Art Press). He will also be an invited guest to sign books later at the Axel F: Night Fever Party at Ten Tigers .
