Chic-a-go-go 500

"Cha-cha real smooth now"

Chic-a-go-go is an awesome Chicago cable access show -- a crazy fusion of Soul Train and a puppet show, with plenty of corny jokes and punk DIY sensibility. A few weeks ago I got their periodic newsletter and Jake mentioned that they were taping the 500th episode and needed a photographer. I had to miss out on auditing the latest Don't Spit the Water auditions, but it was totally not to be missed. How great was it? DJ Casper was there and taught us the Cha-Cha Slide. Andre Williams ("Shake a Tail Feather") was there just being snazzy. People danced. We did the El Line and the Fantasy Dance. I took over 600 pictures. (Here's a smallish selection.) Yay!
