Come celebrate the legacy and cultural impact of the late “Godfather of Go-Go” with this special tribute. This event will also raise awareness for the Library’s Special Collections Department’s Go-Go Music Archive, a collection initiative to document and preserve the legacy and memory of Go-Go music in Washington, D.C.
The day’s activities will include:
Join us as we watch the energetic musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954).
Set in Oregon in 1850, but based on the ancient Roman legend of the Sabine women, this film is particularly known for Micheal Kidd's unusual choreography. He makes dance numbers out of frontier pursuits such as chopping wood and raising a barn. Film critic Stephanie Zacharek has called the barn-raising sequence in Seven Brides "one of the most rousing dance numbers ever put on screen."
