Feel like dancin'

This was a 1977 TV disco dance show from Montreal.
Everything about this makes me so happy - from crowd swaying to the beat being played in the background while the presenter was talking, to the feathered hair and glistening lights.
I love the way the presenter's silk shirt is unbuttoned to reveal a few specks of chest-hair and Brian's deep voice. Brian's story about them trying to make it in LA made me think of how hard it must have been like for a disco singer to 'make it big' in the competitive music environment of capitalist 70s LA. Imagine! like a starving artist but a starving disco queen.. all the money going to sequins.. .can't eat this week.. must sequin.. pants
