Chuck Brown: The Godfather of Go-Go

The weather is awesome today, so you should spend it outside, not reading this blog. You can come back and finish reading later in the afternoon.

While you finish up your coffee and breakfast, check out this video of Chuck Brown in 1987. This is old school and it’s awesome (FYI, the volume is pretty loud).

I’m heading out to Rock Creek for a nice hike. Hopefully that will be a source of inspiration for the ten posts I’ll be writing this afternoon and evening. There were a few good suggestions on Facebook (seriously, why is there no J street?) and Twitter (Marion Barry or Brewmaster’s Castle), so I’ll be checking into a few of those.

Okay, now go outside.
