Grand Avenue Festival, Electric Slide and Whose Dance Is It Anyway?

So if I can bust out of the fugue state today I am going to try to go to the Festival on Grand Avenue. At 2:45 pm they are going to try make the Guinness Book of World Records for the most people doing the Electric Slide. This is gonna be hysterical.

I wanted to show you an example of Electric Slide but there seems to be some dispute about how to do the dance. I didn't think there would be a problem but I just learned not everybody does the dance the same way.

Truthfully, I didn't think it had anything to do with country music but I might be wrong. Now to present yet another perspective:

Lawdy, there is gonna be confusion in Los Angeles today! Back on the country tip:

More on the soul flow aspect, dig the lady dancing with a cane!

Well, I don't know which version of the slide is going to make it in the book. Half of them are gonna be slinging hips and dipping. The other half will be busy counting the steps. So I'm going to go find my camcorder changer and clear off the SD cards.

The particulars:
Sunday, September 28, 2008 11am to 5pm
Grand Avenue, between Temple and 5th Street
Downtown Los Angeles

If you want to be one of 30,000 people dancing, eating and cultivating culture leave the car at home and ride the Red Line:
Take the Red Line to the Civic Center exit. Walk north on 1st Street for one block towards Grand Avenue, walking up the hill.

In the interest of peace and harmony let us come to a consensus of not stepping on anybodies toes. I mean that literally.


  1. That was fun. I always enjoy when I stop by your blog.

  2. This post cracked me up. There is a heckuva lotta difference between how different ppl do the electric slide!
