DCLA has joined forces with the Library of Congress to offer you a chance to attend the Gloria Gaynor Live: Disco Dance Party in the Great Hall of the awe-inspiring Thomas Jefferson Building -- 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 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. Part of Bibliodiscotheque, a series of programs that explores the legacy and impact of disco on popular culture since the 1970s.
Free, tickets required, as the event is listed as sold out. A limited number of tickets have been set aside for DCLA members. Contact Candice Townsend at email@example.com for more information.
Presented in association with Brightest Young Things, The Recording Academy, the District of Columbia Library Association, and Capital Pride.
