WASHINGTON, DC (7News) — They call it “Go-Go” music because once its starts, it just goes and goes and goes. Some say it’s a genre of funk, but everyone agrees it was created in the 1970s by the late Chuck Brown.
The Martin Luther King Library was alive Friday with Go-Go. A band called Crank Caviar filled the auditorium with sound next door to an exhibit hall that featured and exhibit on D.C.’s Go-Go history. Go-Go was named the city’s official music by Mayor Muriel Bowser and the D.C. Council three years ago this week.
