AWESOME THINGS OF WHOSE EXISTENCE I WAS PREVIOUSLY UNAWARE: From the third-ever episode of SNL, a performance by the dance troupe The Lockers, which included Toni Basil, Fred "Not Yet Rerun" Berry, and Shabba Doo. [As some of you will recall, The Lockers (sans Basil) would later appear on "What's Happenin'!!" with Berry in the episode titled "My Three Tons," because, yes, the show did have musical episodes which didn't include The Doobie Brothers.]
The other rather glorious piece of 1970s culture I caught this weekend was an airing of this Earth Wind and Fire concert from Oakland taped for HBO in 1981 -- but, trust me, it could not be more 70s. The laser intro alone ... and then ALOTT5MA fave Verdine "Sexual Chocolate!" White shows up. Fun.
