RBMA NYC 2014 Larry Levan Street PartyKing St
King St, New York, NY
The folks are Red Bull Music Academy are summoning the spirit of DJ Larry Levan this Sunday for a street party of epic proportions. Levan, who has been credited with introducing the dub aesthetic to dance music, was legend for his "Saturday mass" at Paradise Garage, a club that occupied 84 King Street from 1977 to 1987. Today’s takeover, which finds François Kevorkian, David Depino, Joey Llanos and other special guests in the mix, is part of a local groovalicious initiative to rename King Street Larry Levan Way.
