We would sit on the floor for what seemed to be hours to wait for the next band to play. The Howard - Remember the metal stumps on the floor that would trip you up, which were left after the old theater chairs had been removed?
We would go to Cheriy's with the whole Southview Crew to see Essence, Class and sometimes the old Physical Wundor.
About 12 or 15 of us tried to lift one of those bike racks up to the Gym window out back, which was about 2 stories up. We got that thing up in the air and couldn't get it any further, so everybody just dropped it when we heard P. By the way, we gave up getting in and went back to groove to Essence from the back window. I remember thinking we were in another city after that first ride there, but we kept going back. We would hit Southeast Gardens, which was really in Oxon Hill, Columbia Park to see Trouble again, the Cap Center to see all the honies from all over.
We used to hit The Paragon II to see Trouble on Wednesday nights, man was that a hump from S. The Chapter III, Eastside, Rythms, and I can't forget about the RSVP, at Waterside Mall in S. The Metro Club to see Essence every Thursday night.
Man was it dark out there after they turned those lights out.
We even hit spots in VA, like Alexandria Skating Rink to see Ovation and some other band, which had to be the worst band I had ever seen.
I also remember trying to sneak into Oxon Hill High to see Essence and none of us had any money. We ran through the woods and got all cut up and scarred. We were fortunate enough to be at Highland to see Essence play for free.We can't forget about Wolfman, Tricky Rick, DJ Flexx, DJ Kool, DJ Rico and all the DJ's from back in the day, as well as today.IF we left anyone out, please send us an e-mail and we will add them to our list.
