Kiss & Tell: Dance Fever
In the 80s we obsessively watched what is now considered to be one of the worst dance shows in the history of TV, Dance Fever, which aired weekly from 1979 to 1987. Later, we thankfully got to experience Solid Gold and Soul Train on the air. In recent years, through the wonders of YouTube, we have been able to sneak a peek at The Scene and New Dance Show, the Detroit programs which featured way cooler music than anything on the national networks. For whatever reason, it was Dance Fever that really left an impression on our childhood ears and eyes. Maybe it was the C-list "celebrity" judges no one had ever heard of, or maybe it was the light-up dancefloor, we'll never really know. Broo
Brooklyn local and international superstar Matthew Dear will be playing a sexy late night house music set.
In honor of our buddy Atomly's birthday we are hosting a dance contest and letting him play all of his favorite songs. Atomly says: "I wanna be able to play Sugarloaf, Bananarama, Can, and Fad Gadget, but still be able to throw in Sabbath or Slayer if it feels right." He is also requesting that the ladies wear as little as possible.
Resident DJ Bethany Benzur will be on decks with another one of her
rare and titillating disco sets.
Dance Contest: Grab a partner (or fly solo), pick a song, and practice
your moves! The best dance and costumes will win a fabulous prize.
Dress Up: Even if you are not competing dress up in your favorite 80s dance party outfit.
