In these tumultuous times, sometimes it seems we’re on the brink of destruction. However, instead of cowering in fear, I thought it might be a good idea to take inspiration from the people of mid-century America - The Original Atomic Age.
How did they deal with their feelings? Sure, they built bomb shelters, but mostly they danced about it. They danced, and danced, and danced and danced. They invented so many whimsical dance steps until they had danced the worry right out of them!
So won’t you please set aside your cares for a night, and join us for an Atomic Age-Oldies Party. Dance like there’s no tomorrow! Dress up in clothing inspired by the era and have an ATOMIC BLAST on the dance floor!
Your host DJ Action Slacks will spin 45 record with DJ Wildman James and Tom Kay from Do The 45! on @freeformpdx:
R&B, early rock n roll, soul, garage rock, rockabilly, girl groups, and pop records from the 1950s & 1960s. Familiar favorites with fun rarities!
