Boston bred disco star Donna Summer, who died in 2012 at the age of 63, gave the world a catalog of memorable, groundbreaking dance music that will thankfully be with us forever. Summer’s legacy will be the focal point of a city sanctioned roller disco tribute party taking place July 18 at Boston’s City Hall Plaza. The celebration is presented in association with the fine folks from dance music festival Together Boston. The party will also help raise awareness of a group of local fans who are trying to establish a permanent memorial in Boston to the Roxbury/Dorchester native.
Dorchester’s Kon and the Gang will be spinning classic disco and funk and Dance Spot Boston, a mobile dance floor art installation, will create a custom installation to honor this Boston music icon. The free event will take place from 6pm-10pm. Bring your skates or rent them on site for free. More details can be found here.
Get there early and stay until the last dance.
