It isn't a dead medium.... check this report on vinyl making a comeback.

And now, its time to herald the return of rollerdisco. What better time and place to bang out the boogie?

Here is the Press Release for AllSkate:

Skate to save a roller rink
City kids line up their vinyl for grand benefit to help save Chez Vous

Dorchester, MA --- September 20, 2006 --- It may be the music of the 80s that could save Boston's only roller rink from a fate fit for a bad 80s movie itself.

After 70 years serving the city with a place to roller skate, Chez Vous Roller Rink in Dorchester is facing tough financial times and could face closure if it can't get its head above water soon. But a group of local DJs and community organizers won't let that happen without a fight, and on Wednesday, October 18th, they are hosting a benefit at the rink to raise money and awareness for the threatened institution.

"ALL SKATE: A Night to Benefit Chez Vous" takes place from 8 pm to midnight on the 18th of October. It's hosted by DJs Joseph Colbourne, San Serac, Mark. E. Moon and Brendan Wesley spinning classic roller boogie and disco, electro funk and house to recreate a roller disco party of a new kind of scale. Proceeds from the event directly benefit the rink; tickets are $10, available this weekend onward at the rink, or via this contact, and $12 the night of the event. Skate rental is included free. Partygoers are invited to pursue their most creative roller skating outfitting ideas, and there is no age restriction on attendance. Chez Vous is located at 11 Rhoades St. in Dorchester, just at the corner of Rt. 203 and Blue Hill Ave. The rink area is serviced by the 28, 29, 21 and 31 bus routes on the MBTA.

Chez Vous has served the city since the 1930s, in its recent years hosting countless musical events as well as after-school programs for local kids. Now, it's time for the community to reach back and help preserve this city treasure. It's a place for neighborhood kids to enjoy a creative, athletic activity, as well as an outlet for some of the region's most stunning artistic skating for patrons of all ages, and we can't let it be forgotten.

"ALL SKATE" is produced by Lindsay Crudele, a writer and fond roller skater, an entirely volunteer team of DJs, designers, sound technicians and printers, and in partnership with the Northeast Sticks Together festival.
