Disco didn’t completely suck

If you’re a Person of a Certain Age who liked to rock and/or roll, you remember the dark days of disco, when Giorgio Moroder was the devil and the Bee Gees were the hounds of hell.

If so, you probably broke out in hives at the sight of a mirror ball, and you saw the infamous “Disco Demolition Night” as your generation’s Woodstock.

But something good did come of the Disco Era (other than being able to get some hideous clothes really cheap at Goodwill from 1981 on).  Check out this band, Johnnyswim, performing a Tiny Desk Concert on NPR.

The female vocalist in Johnnyswim is Amanda Sudano, and she just happens to be the daughter of Disco Diva Donna Summer and songwriter/producer Bruce Sudano, who met in March of 1977 in the heart of the disco era. Rock on!
