go-go-symphony

Go Go Symphony performs the historic DC musical genre. They have received rave reviews from performances at the 930 Club with genre originators Trouble Funk, and at the Atlas Theater with the Capital City Symphony. The Church at Clarendon supports community and artistic endeavors, and proudly offers this community concert for free, Saturday October 4, 7:00-8:30pm.

Go-go music is a sub genre of funk that has been extremely popular in the Washington, DC area since the 1970′s, especially with African Americans. Its main feature is live funky polyrhythm — endless amounts of it — with drums, congas, cowbells, timbales, rototoms, and tambourines. It also uses improvisation and audience call and response. The beat never stops during a show; one song just morphs into the next.

If you’re a twin or know one – bring them out as well!
