Description

Get Up, Get Down - The Rise & Fall of Disco

Disco music: catchy, annoying, nostalgic.

Love it. Cringe at it. What were the origins of this fabulous, foot-tapping, 70s’ sound? How did it come to be appropriated by the LGBT+ and other communities? What happened to it?

In outrageous (and dubious) garb, Dr François Evans, Associate Professor in Music at Middlesex University, will probe these questions through a spangly odyssey across the music we think we knew.

Bring your flares, your sequins, your collars, your tube tops, medallions, lip gloss and glam.

Details:

Date: Wednesday 1st November 2017
Time: 12:30 – 13:30
Location: Room C138, College Building, Hendon Campus
