Paradise Garage

The Paradise Garage was a discotheque notable in the history of modern dance and pop music, as well as LGBT and nightclub cultures[1][2][3] It was founded by Michael Brody (its sole proprietor). Paradise Garage was located at 84 King Street, in the Hudson Square neighborhood of New York City. It operated from 1977 to 1987 and was the base for resident DJ Larry Levan. The club's name derives from its origins as a parking garage. The Paradise Garage's business model was largely inspired by David Mancuso's parties at The Loft: no liquor was served, there were no sales of food or beverages, and the club was not open to the general public.[4] The building which housed the Paradise Garage is now a facility for Verizon Communications.

Music[edit] House music as a genre originated with the Garage's house DJ Larry Levan and his contemporaries, Frankie Knuckles and Nicky Siano.

The Last Poets is the name for several groups of poets and musicians who arose from the late 1960s African-American civil rights movement's black nationalist movement. The name is taken from a poem by the South African revolutionary poet Keorapetse Kgositsile, who believed he was in the last era of poetry before guns would take over. The original users of that name were the trio of Felipe Luciano, Gylan Kain, and David Nelson. However, it is the versions of the group led by Jalaluddin Masur Nuriddin and/or Umar Bin Hassan that have penetrated mass culture to a legendary degree. The Last Poets have been cited as one of the earliest influences on hip-hop music.

Critic Jason Ankeny wrote: "With their politically charged raps, taut rhythms, and dedication to raising African-American consciousness, the Last Poets almost single-handedly laid the groundwork for the emergence of hip-hop History[edit] Gil Scott-Heron.
