Roxy Music

March 17, 2007

[From Andrew T] The history of the Roxy Club in NYC as profiled by the Village Voice. “Not many clubs last longer than a few years in New York City, but roller-disco-turned-nightspot the Roxy had stayed afloat since 1979—until last weekend, when John Blair, promoter of the long-running Saturday night gay dance party there, held his last such event with resident DJ Peter Rauhofer. Bought by the owners of the Frank Gehry–designed condos down the block, the Roxy’s building at 515 West 18th Street is slated to be razed in the next few months. While it may open for one-offs and roller-skating parties until then, this is essentially the Roxy’s last hurrah.”
