Album:2008:01-25 Enter The Blues

Sosh and I decided to outdo our shenanigans at LindyFocus (the "Late Night Liberation Front"), and we created a presentation for people to "learn" about the (ancient) History of Blues Dancing.

(You don't find this stuff on Wikipedia..)

Which was chaotic
and amusing. [photo Sharon C]
