Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick



Imagine my curiosity this morning when I was sitting at my local coffee shop and noticed a pair of hand-lettered signs on the bulletin board advertising "bounce classes."

No phone number or website was listed for more information, so I can only assume it means what I think it means - that some friendly downtowner is offering instruction on how to dance to New Orleans' homegrown hip-hop sound with the hyperactive beat and the lewd lyrics. That is, how to walk the dog, pop it, drop it, shake, twerk, wobble and dip low.

This should be a prerequisite for anyone planning to see the Throwback revue at Jazz Fest with Cheeky Blakk, T. Tucker and UNLV.Bounce class gets down Wednesdays from 11-1 p.m. and Saturdays from 5-7 p.m. at the Sidearm Gallery at 1122 St. Roch Avenue. Word!
