  • Angie Pontani, The Brooklyn Slide

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on October 18th, 2011 (All posts by )

    Please note the video below, which provides important information for ChicagoBoyz readers. It contains go-go dance instruction from Angie Pontani, of the World Famous Pontani Sisters, previously mentioned here and here.

    The Pontani Sisters are now touring with Los Straitjackets, including three Chicago area shows this weekend. I hope to be at one of these shows. The video shows you how to do their new dance number, the Brooklyn Slide.

    Please practice at home and attain basic proficiency before trying these steps in public.

      Well, she made one big mistake in the early part of the video. The *FIRST* thing you have to do is “be a cute girl.”

    2. Michael Hiteshew Says:

      Don’t know what’s wrong. I keep practicing, but I don’t look anything like that!

    3. Jason in LA Says:

      Another reason why burqas are no bueno.

    4. bill Says:

      It is SO helpful that she has those tight clothes on so I can concentrate on every moving part in detail.

    5. Mockingbird Says:

      Ya’ll stopmaking wisecracks, this is important! Especially in a recession.

    6. Carl from Chicago Says:

      I like the little dog.

      Used to play in a pickup band and we’d do a few straightjacket songs.

    7. Lexington Green Says:

      Which ones? My favorites ones are Isn’t Love Grand, University Boulevard and Pacifica.

      Their cover of The End of the World, with Leigh Nash singing, is brilliant.

      Ha. I never even noticed the dog until you mentioned it.

      My attention was entirely riveted by Ms. Pontani, apparently.
