And he's right. The slander of "disco sucks" is tired and ignorant, especially considering the love showered on acts such as Daft Punk, Justice, LCD Soundsystem and Lady GaGa -- acts that draw directly from the disco well, even if their fans don't always realize it. Boyhollow promises a night full of vintage disco and Italo-disco from the late '70s and early-to-mid '80s. "I never plan my sets in advance, but a sampling all around of what I'm thinking of is stuff like Giorgio Moroder, Cerrone, George McCrae, Scotch, Cyber People...along with more well-known disco classics," he says. "I'll probably try to avoid stuff like Chic because I think it may bring the irony into play too much."
Leave your preconceptions and your snarky, hipster bullshit at the door and come down expecting nothing but a chance to shake your ass and have a good time and that's what you'll get. And if I'm wrong, and you hate disco as much as your prejudice tells you to expect, then the fifty-cent PBRs and two-buck pitchers should ease the pain considerably.
