Thanks to everybody who came out to SOUL NITE at NW Film Forum this Thursday for our trip back to 1969 and Sly Stone birthday celebration. DJ David James played a ton of great 1969 soul records (he and his cohort DJ Greasy spin rare soul and funk at DUG, first Fridays at the LoFi- check it out HERE.) Mr. Dave Hanagan provided the birthday cakes for Sly (Don’t call me chocolate, vanilla!). And we cranked up the big soul tv for great ’69 performances from greats including James Brown, Stevie Wonder… and of course Sly & The Family Stone.
Mark your calendars for our next Soul Nite- on Stevie Wonder’s birthday, Wednesday May 13. Guess who we’ll be spotlighting? (If anybody out there wants to make a birthday cake for Stevie, let me know.)
