Lindy Fusion needs to hurry up and become a thing.
How much better would the world be if opposing groups (gangs, politicians, fanboys, etc.) had to settle everything with dance offs? Also, if you only watch one thing today, check out the awesome old dude sliding in at 9:30.

Of particular interest to +Adam Lasnik​ for amazing Lindy Hop. Hat tip to +Boing Boing​for the video!

Have y'all seen this write-up about Norma. She's amazing. I'm so glad I had the chance to learn from her. Check out her novel, too. If  you want a review, you can check out my site ;)

Man, I want to be her when I grow up. LOL

Saturday 3rd Oct, Speakeasy Bootleg Band comes blasting back into Manchester's legendary Jazz club, Matt & Phred's - 64 Tib St, Manchester, M4 1LW. We're still trying to believe the last one.........They wouldn't let us off stage - wall to wall brilliance. It's worth coming just for the vibe alone. According to Hello Magazine, " this venue has developed a reputation for showcasing the finest in jazz artists" In the club's own words:- "Matt & Phred's is a long established live music venue, situated in Manchester's trendy Northern Quarter. Over the years the likes of Sneaky, Kit Downes, Marius Neset, Manu Delago, the Dagda Quartet, Jamie Cullum and even Adele have graced the stage in our little neighbourhood joint.

Most notably known for showcasing the best in local and international Jazz, Matt & Phred's offers much, much more, with live music 6 nights a week, encompassing the likes of Jazz, Folk, Gypsy, Electro, Salsa, Swing, World and even a little bit of Ska. As well as being able to see some amazingly talented musicians, our bar and kitchen team are also at the top of their game. If you enjoy cocktails then this is the place to be. We also have a cracking wine list with featured wines of the month and of course anyone who has ever been to the club knows just how good the pizzas are and at weekends we have added specials to tantalise your taste buds!"

After this, everything else is moonshine.

WE DID IT! We reached our goal of $3,500, thanks to all of you, and in particular the VERY generous $1,000 contribution from Charlie of You Should Be Dancing Studios in New York City. 

We still have 12 days left in our campaign, and lots to do to prepare for ILHC. While the $3,500 guarantees that we can produce the main broadcast, we’d like to do EVEN MORE at this ILHC: upgrade our aging equipment, shoot more behind-the-scenes footage, interview more of the legends of lindy, etc... So please keep contributing between now and August 4 to help us do that! 

(Plus we still have lots of awesome perks that you don’t want to miss!)
