L'Amour PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

L'Amour free pdf During the disco drenched year of 1978, 62nd Street in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, was home to L'Amour, a small, unassuming discotheque thriving on a local dance crowd. "Rock Nights" on Thursdays were first brushed off as a bad joke. But in less than a year, blindsided by scores of disgruntled heavy metal misfits, the punch-line of that bad joke swelled into a quarter-century-long tsunami of hell-raising mayhem that turned a faceless disco into the world's most famous heavy metal mecca. L'Amour: Rock Capital of B'klyn is a large format book jammed with over 1,000 full-color photographs, ticket stubs, and memorabilia representing the rich music history of the Brooklyn venue. Hundreds of full-color performance photos of the bands that hit the L'Amour stage are featured prominently in the book, as well as interviews with many of the musicians. Venue staff, club regulars, and show attendees contribute slices of club life. L'Amour: Rock Capital of B'klyn tells the story in stunning images and words of the famous heavy metal venue and its important contributions to the scene. If you are a heavy metal fan, or just a music history buff in general, this book is a must have.
