Take me out to the go-go....

I must admit that I am a TRUE Washintonian in most sense of the phrase...but TRUE to the HEART when it comes to fact that I LOVE Go-Go!!! As a matter of fact I remember that one of the things that made me want to be "grow-up" was the fact that I wanted to go to the go-go...

My First Go-Go EVER was at Suitland High School, my freshman year. Me and my girl SW went to see Backyard! Unforgettable!!!!
My favorite Go-Go bands:
1. Chuck Brown (got to start with the god-father of Go-Go)
2. RE (the original RE...man my brother is 8 years older than me so I was listening to them for YEARS)
3. Backyard
4. Groovers
Most recently
5. Shuttle Thoughts

Here is a must see throw back. RE in 1994. This was when going to the go-go was just fun. If someone acted up, yeah maybe there was a fist fight, but folks wasn't getting shot all up back then, or at least not on the regular like now (I feel sorry for these kids now, they can't even go to a go-go and have a good time...my mother KNEW we was at the Zulu Cave every Saturday night). Of course there was always one or two crews that went there to fight or start some mess...but for the most part, folks just wanted to have a good time!



Ok...now you KNOW that thing right there just CRANKED...Uh oh Head Up!!! you sitting there at your desk bouncing and moving like you done lost your mind hoping that your boss didn't come past!!!

And see all them bamas in that small little space HOT to DEATH and just having a good time...AWWW Bring Back the Good Ole Days...

Ok Ok let's get back to work...Shot out to Li for putting me on to this classic

PS Honestly I can't listen to it like that anymore...when I was coming up I could bang a tape (eventually CD) for hours and hours and hours, all days sometimes...
now give me a good 30-45 minutes and I am STRAIGHT for a minute...LOL

Ok I am frontin cause I can listen to this for hours! (Take it back to 1991!)
