Washington Go-Go Music

Washington Go-Go Music

A speaker is on the wall outside the Metro PCS store, Saturday, May 25, 2019 in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington. The owner of the store was told to turn down the Go Go music that he had been playing through sidewalk speakers for more than 20 years. He claims the complaint came from a resident of the gleaming new mixed-used apartment building erected on the next block. Go-go music, a distinctive Washington DC-specific offshoot of funk, has endured for decades through cultural shifts, fluctuations in popularity and law enforcement purges. Now go-go has taken on a new mantle: battle hymn for the fight against a gentrification wave that’s reshaping the city. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)
