Get Down Tonight: KC and the Sunshine Band, Dub Narcotic Sound System: Disco lives--deal with it. Harry "KC" Casey, balding leader of the prototypical Polyester Era act, was a pioneer of that thin strip of land where white soul met saccharine pop and engendered stuff like "(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty." The Sunshine crew performs on Wednesday, October 23, at Veterans' Memorial Coliseum, in conjunction with Arizona State Fair (see Thursday). The Boogie Knights open at 7 p.m. The show is free with regular fair admission; limited reserved seating is available for a fee; see the "In General" section of the At the Fair listing or call 268-3247 or 252-6771. DNSS, Calvin Johnson's beat-happening groove machine, brings a bit of Olympia, Washington-style slacker chic to the disco oeuvre. Nikki McClure shares the stage on Wednesday at Hollywood Alley, 2610 West Baseline in Mesa. The all-ages show starts at 8 p.m.; call 820-7117.
