DADA 1st Friday Gallery Hop is set for May 4
Seekers of nostalgia and those who enjoy the art and music of the 60’s early 70’s will find more than enough inspiration to get their Go Go boots, polka dot ties, Nehru jackets, mini skirts and tie dye out of the mothballs for DADA’s Salute to WTOB and the Sounds of the Decades on Friday, May 4 from 7-10 PM.
The Salute will include “Red Carpet” arrivals set to begin in front of WTOB at 7:15. Vintage vehicles will roll down Trade Street with current line up of WTOB DJs PLUS surprise VIP’s, including known 60’s / 70’s AM radio DJ’s who are expected to walk the carpet and take over the radio station.
The GB’s, playing 60’s British Invasion and American Pop, will headline the event and perform near the WTOB station on N. Trade Street.
Go Go dancers moving to the sounds of the 60’s will also be featured. Those wishing to dance can learn 60’s dances including the “Pony,” “Boogaloo / Shing-a-ling,” and the”Jerk” and take a turn in the Go Go Booth.
60’s inspired art and craft work are part of this interactive event. The public is encouraged to wear 60’s/70’s attire and join in the spirit of the day.
Event Happenings at the DADA Office located at North Trade Street Arts Center will include a tribute to The Doors featuring guest artists painting on actual doors, each inspired by a different Doors song. DADA staff will be taking photos of those wearing 60/70’s clothing for our “People Are Strange” photo montage. Come have your photo taken and pick up the DADA Gallery Guide and Official 20th Anniversary DADA 1st Friday Hop Schedule!
