I freely admit to having a severe pro-freestyle critical bias. I grew up listening to the 808-heavy Latin influenced dance music sub-genre and I still listen to the stuff relatively frequently, so I can't really distance myself enough to think about the music in any other way than absolutely positive. I will love this music forever, regardless of its overall place in pop history, so clearly, I'm quite excited for the Freestyle Explosion show coming to the TCC on May 19th (the day before my birthday, even!) and sponsored by 106.3 The Groove.
Expose! Lisa Lisa! Stevie B! Debbie Deb! Connie! Stacey Q! I should probably pace my excitement a bit, considering the show is in May, but this could be the highlight of my musical year. Good luck staying awake at Bon Iver. No one will have such an issue at the Freestyle Explosion show, I promise.
Bonus video! Debbie Deb, "Lookout Weekend"!
