Go-go: The message IS the music

The much-maligned go-go genre is always fending off criticism: It’s too violent, too regional, too underground.

Whatever. Can’t music just be fun to listen to? Yes. And that’s what go-go is to me — fun — the other stuff is just on the periphery.

But it is hard to find. That’s why I was so pumped to find a 2005 show from Backyard Band at Tradewinds (available here) floating around the ether of the Internet. It’s fantastic and I wanted to pass it along. Go-go haters, listen to this, THEN try hating.
