With the whole '80s dance party explosion in the mid-aughts and the '90s neon nu-rave flashback a few years later, one might think we've all but exhausted kitschy appropriations of trends from previous decades. Think again. The time is ripe, friends, for a disco comeback.

Recently, a number of fashion-types have been proclaiming the death of the skinny jean and the triumphant resurrection of the bell-bottom. Add to that mass "hustle" hysteria sweeping the streets and dance clubs of urban metropolises*, and you've got a definite nu-disco detonation.

What better way, then, to usher in the revival of the sweaty, polyester-clad early '70s disco era than by catching disco icons KC and the Sunshine Band at Taco Bell Arena?

KC and the Sunshine band were responsible for some of the most memorable disco hits--"Get Down Tonight," "Shake, Shake, Shake (Your Booty)," "I'm Your Boogie Man," "Keep It Comin' Love" and "That's the Way (I Like It)"--from a time many who lived through it probably don't remember.

For only $15, including fees, you can boogie oogie oogie on down to the Taco Bell Arena at 7:30 p.m. to catch these pioneers before the impending nu-disco explosion.
