A Celebration of Timeless Music with Selectress Iriela (NYC) & Special Guest Jovonn


1978 celebrates the genesis & evolution of dance and DJ culture. A sonic adventure … from disco, rare grooves, funk, hip-hop, soul, house music & beyond!

On May 18th we go deeper as 1978’s founder and international Producer and DJ Selectress Iriela bangs the party alongside special guest, Brooklyn’s own, Jovonn! Join us as we welcome this legendary force in house music since the 1990’s. Jovonn is an architect of house music, turning out gems with labels Body n Deep, Next Moov Recordings and more.

May 18th we unveil our first vintage pop up shop featuring IndigoStyle Vintage – a black woman owned, thoughtfully curated vintage boutique serving up vintage clothing and accessories from the 40s to early 2000’s. They offer genderless and size inclusive pieces and an attainable price point.

Enjoy our signature mezcal cocktail “I Feel Love” and dance the night away!


1978 Events was born out of Selectress Iriela’s record collection orbiting this magical year, sure enough on the back of her “Special Selections,” in small print would be the year: 1978 – no matter the genre. This inspired the series to launch in 2014 in Brooklyn with guests ranging from Sal P of Liquid Liquid to Natasha Diggs and legend BreakBeat Lou. Welcome to 1978 – that sweet spot where timeless music and club culture intersect on the dancefloor! Music is a feeling – not limited to one genre, era or style and above all catalyzes the human need to come together in dance and creative expression.
