First of Its Kind DC Underground Exhibit Shows at Corcoran

Everyone knows Go-Go.  Some even remember Cool “Disco” Dan.  But the rest of DC’s thriving underground scene from the 80s likely draws a blank.

Enter the Corcoran Gallery of Art‘s 1st exhibit on the local funk movement.pump1

From go-go to graffiti and all of the subculture that lies in between, “Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s” is a collection of concert posters, photography and graffiti art made inside the Beltway during the Go-pump2Go decade.

Looks like our funk can’t fly under the radar any longer.

WOW! The exhibit’s early February opening party is already sold out, but stop by to check out the exhibit on display through April.
