Young MC-Bust a Move: The 1st Song I Hear in My Head after Reading My Last Blog Post

During my last semester as a BFA undergraduate in sculpture at Kansas City Art Institute I supported myself  by go-go dancing at a dive bar/strip joint called Gus Goldmine in downtown KC. All of the dancers performed  to songs on the jukebox  and Bust a Move by Young MC was one of my favorites. I had my senior thesis show/art school graduation at the go-go bar. It was a performance and photo installation. I danced, all of my co-workers danced, and the art kids and regular customers gave all of us girls tips. It was lots of fun but very un-pc. I was protesting the patriarchy but the feminists did not understand and my white male sculpture teachers were even more clueless and did not attend. I will look for pics in my slide archives and post as soon as I can find and scan them. Of course there is lots more to say about my midwest experience. Stay tuned for more. gus goldmine 1333 Main kansas city Missouri KCMO
