Baltimore: Globe Poster Printing Corp. 1995.

Price: $1,200.00

Unbound. Large boxing-style poster. Approximately 18" x 32.5". Screen printed in orange, green, and black on thin white poster cardstock. Printing information at the bottom slightly misprinted else fine. Poster for a go-go show. Go-go was a genre of funk dance music that features audience call and response that originated in the mid-'60s, and is still popular in the Washington, D.C. area. This performance features two of the better known acts in the genre: Experience Unlimited (here called E.U., whose biggest hit was "Da Butt"), and Rare Essence (with D.J. James Funk). By 1995, go-go had become increasingly influenced by hip hop, and some of the bands on this bill are better known for that. In 2020, go-go was named the "official music" of Washington, D.C. A bright and colorful example.
