Daylight Pre-Inauguration Celebration

Editorial Review

Daylight's post-election session was emotionally charged. It's not often that a dance party breaks down in the middle, everyone holds hands to say a prayer and then jumps right back into the groove. With all of the visitors in town looking for the real soul, the family reunion/block party vibe should go up several notches. This is Washington's real old-school party, not the kind where you hear the same Frankie Beverly, Cheryl Lynn and Gap Band sequence over and over again, and its afternoon time slot means you can sleep in, dance, go home for a disco nap and go back out and do it all over again.
