MANHATTAN: Live On Larry Levan Way

From the live stream site:

Larry Levan elevated DJing to an artform at New York’s Paradise Garage. As part of the local initiative to rename King Street Larry Levan Way, the Red Bull Music Academy is proud to pay tribute to Levan’s legacy with the Larry Levan Street Party. Join us as we turn King Street between Varick and Hudson into Larry Levan Way for one day along with François Kevorkian, David DePino, Joey Llanos and some very special guests.As the legendary DJ of the Paradise Garage, Larry Levan was revered for his musical journeys, gaining a loyal following in the gay and straight communities alike. As one of the first DJs to perform worldwide and one of the first DJs to develop and own his own record label, Larry Levan was a true pioneer in the dance music industry. The overwhelming message of love and positivity that Levan shared through his music broke down barriers in the dance music scene and beyond. Levan’s remixes and productions for revered artists such as Aretha Franklin, Grace Jones, Chaka Khan, Smokey Robinson, and Jocelyn Brown continue to be treasured today by DJs all over the world. It is because of this legacy that a petition has started, requesting that the section of King Street between Varick and Hudson Streets be renamed Larry Levan Way.
