Rock or disco?
That might’ve been the most important question for a teenager back in the 1970s, but attendees of this year’s Seaside Summer Concert Series at Asser Levy Park in Coney Island won’t have to make such a devastating choice.
That’s because the 31st edition of Borough President Markowitz’s popular concert series will feature both rock icon Deborah Harry (Aug. 13) and disco queen Donna Summer (Aug. 27).
The full concert was just revealed on Wednesday night — and there’s no lack of female star power.
Indeed, “heartbreaker” Pat Benatar will appear on the same bill as Blondie, joined by the hard-rocking band, the Donnas.
Last week, Markowitz said he was trying to sign another “mystery female star” — and she turned out to be Gladys Knight, who’ll share a bill with the O’Jays on July 23.
The series won’t be an all-girl affair, of course, but it’s definitely a bit stuck in the ’70s. Hall & Oates will appear on Aug. 6, and Creedence Clearwater Revisited will share a stage with Mountain and John “Welcome Back” Sebastian on July 16.
