Studio 54? Qu’est-ce que c’est?
By the late 1970s, “Montreal had platinum-status admission to the VIP lounge of coolest-of-the-cool disco cities.” An oral history of the city where no one bats an eye at going out to dance at 1:30 AM in –20°C weather. (Contains links to MP3 of CBC Radio documentary.)
Incidentally, the film Funkytown
mentioned in the comments is an upcoming bilingual historical comedy-drama
about the Montreal disco scene that, by the looks of it
, will feature some really bitchin’ wardrobe.
