From L.A. To Chicago With Speed
The Go-Go’s emerged from that same frantic Los Angeles scene, although the effervescent songs on their Beauty and The Beat debut would bring them much more mainstream success than X. I first encountered them via the Stiff Records 45 single “We Got The Beat” I bought at Wax Trax!and soon after saw them on the rock stage at ChicagoFest on Navy Pier. The Go-Go’s aren’t coming to town that I know of, but Head Over Heels, the musical inspired by their music, opens at Theater Wit in a Kokandy Productions staging on August 1. It previously enjoyed a successful run on Broadway in New York. Theater Wit is located at 1229 W. Belmont.
