Dancin’ With Dali

Sometimes I try to imagine what it would be like minding my own business on the dance floor (while werkin’ it of course), and running into the likes of Salvador Dali. I can’t really think of a modern equivalent to Dali, but patrons of seminal Rock n Roll club Trude Heller’s regularly got a dose of the Dali on the dance floor. (probably more like a private VIP area…). Located on 6th Ave and 9th Street, the place was known for wild Go-go dancing and live Rock n Roll in the 1960s, before morphing into a punk hang out and finally hosting acts like the Beastie Boys and Cyndi Lauper in the early 80s.
