City Paper Community Conversations - HISTORY OF D.C. MUSIC: Go-Go Edition

  • Public Bar Live 1214 18th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)


Join Washington City Paper at Public Bar Live on October 18th for a conversation on D.C.'s history through go-go.

We all know that go-go is the soundtrack of D.C., but do you know the music’s history? Learn the remarkable story of go-go’s creator, the “Godfather” Chuck Brown; about old-school bands like Trouble Funk, Rare Essence, Experience Unlimited, and Junkyard Band; about the powerhouse that is Backyard Band; and the new generation of bounce beat artists that are reinventing the DMV sound. 

The conversation will be moderated by WCP freelance writer Alona Wartofsky.
