Well this looks awesome:

Derek Pavone and Bottom Forty proudly present a limited engagement screening of an important snapshot of American dance music history. Love Is The Message - A Night At The Gallery 1977, directed by Nicky Siano, takes the viewer back to the heyday of dance music for one night at New York’s famed club, The Gallery.

Opened in 1972 by Siano and his brother, The Gallery had such an effect on the dance music scene that it is still felt today in clubs around the world. Before Studio 54, Paradise Garage, and The Warehouse, there was The Gallery, where Nicky Siano could be found in the DJ booth every Saturday night. Grace Jones and Loleatta Holloway both made their first appearances at The Gallery, and Frankie Knuckles used to blow up balloons for the club. Frankie would also often bring DJ Larry Levan around to check out the music. This was a time before disco was disco, and before the imposing velvet ropes of the high-society discoteques.

Bonus: Both screenings will benefit the Gay City Health Project.

Six (and possibly counting) new Slog posts since 4:00. Talk about a Friday news dump.

(Dude, we had a deadly school shooting. Any earlier with a lot of this stuff didn't make sense.)
