From WUSA9, where you can read the full story:
One District of Columbia councilmember wants to make go-go the official music of “Chocolate City” after at least one resident in the rapidly gentrifying Shaw neighborhood complained about the beat.
Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie wants to amend city code to enshrine go-go music as a part of the fabric of the District, he said in a news release. His 12 other colleagues on the council also are sponsors of the bill.
“To me, and so many other native Washingtonians, go-go music has become so much more than just a musical genre.” he said. “Designating go-go the official music of the city signals to those who have been here and to those who continue to move here, that this music represents the lived experiences of native Washingtonians.”
