DJ El Toro (Stranger contributor and KEXP programmer Kurt B. Reighley) and Freddy King of Pants will be turning their next edition of The World's Tiniest Tea Dance at PONY (Sunday from 4 pm-9 pm) into a tribute to the life of the late disco queen Donna Summer. Let's let Kurt elaborate.
From her early days at Donna Gaines, through the highs (and lows) of the '70s and '80s, right up to her final album, "Crayons," we'll be spinning our favorite hits and rarities, plus related cuts. (Fun fact: Did you know Roberta "Zodiac Lady" Kelly went on to become Donna's personal assistant after making her own disco albums with Giorgio Moroder?)
