'Cause We're Gonna Boogie Oogie Oogie: Boogie Babes

On a rainy Friday morning a few weeks ago, we headed down to H Street N.E. in search of some tunes (mom looked longingly at the Rock & Roll Hotel and sadly realized the last time she had been there was actually for another music event for us -- Baby Loves Disco -- although there was booze, so she maintains it still counts as "going out").  We had heard through the D.C. blogvine about Boogie Babes and decided to check it out - it's only $5 per kid - siblings under 6 months are free.  BB is held at Eastern Market on Thursdays and at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on Fridays, which was a great, open, big bathroomed venue that had its little cafe open during the music hour.  Mr. Skip wowed us with his range (he hit both Yellow Submarine and Baby Beluga, which are MAJOR hits in our house), funny antics (Kane kept saying "he's so silly"), and energy.  We're babes.  We boogied. We'll be back.

And next time we'll make sure to hit up Dangerously Delicious Pies right next door, which just so happens to have a play on skull and crossbones as its logo.
