I couldn't quite believe it when the Museum of Modern Art approached me to suggest a launch event for Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor and now that the launch has happened I still can't believe it.
From the book signing queues to the wonder of seeing Downtown 81 on the big screen for the first time to the absolute pleasure of chairing a panel of downtown stars ( Ann Magnuson, Patti Astor, Fred Brathwaite/Fab 5 Freddy, Glenn O'Brien, Johnny Dynell and Michael Holman) to heading to the MoMA bar with downtowner friends and historic friends at the end of it all, the night was like a deliriously mad dream in which there's barely time to track the movement from scene to scene.
Here's a link to the panel discussion for those who couldn't be there or those who are committed enough to experience it all over again, http://bit.ly/2dcJFY9. Many thanks once again to Ron Magliozzi and Sophie Cavoulacos of MoMA for the invitation and all the hard work. I'm very happy and very lucky and I think the book is, too.
