The third “For the Love of D.C.” concert highlights the future of D.C.’s dynamic go-go movement. Guests will enjoy an immersive experience celebrating the next wave of go-go music and its cultural impact on the District.
The event gives go-go fans and avid music lovers the opportunity to learn more about D.C.’s culturally rich genre and showcase what those unique sounds mean to the city and the entire DMV region.
Local comedian Mckenton Russell will host the evening, featuring live performances from the city’s favorite go-go bands including TCB, New Impressionz, TOB, Made Sessions, and The Made Band. There will also be a go-go market featuring merchandise and themed swag from local vendors like MadeInTheDMV’s Angela Byrd.
In recognition of the importance of go-go and its role in DC’s local economy and culture, Events DC established the Go-Go Industry Relief Fund designed to support go-go-related programming in the District. Totaling $1 million dollars, the program provided direct payments to qualifying go-go bands and artists as well as grants for in-studio performances and concert production. Bounce Beat + Beyond is one of the final events stemming from the Fund.
The keepers of the go-go culture are nothing if not resilient. They’ve continually reinvented ways to stay relevant as the local music scene shifts. Today, the genre is reasserting itself into the District’s bloodstream.
And we, the allies championing its cause, know it can be so much more. Our community’s continued love of go-go is a great sign for the future, and now is the time to build on it. Don’t miss our celebration of this iconic genre on November 21.
