Enjoy music by Deke Dickerson and the Eccofonics, Disco DJ at our after hours club, Studio 301, food, and a curator's talk. Arlis and the Playboys will be signing autographs! Don't miss out! Disco was something of a cultural reset, a letdown and escape after a decade and a half of turmoil that started with the 1960s protests, wars, and assassinations. Then everything was questioned. In disco, which at its best induced a mindless trance, almost nothing was questioned. Come see what was happening in OC during the disco era!
