D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and the family of Chuck Brown announced the memorial events that will be held for the Godfather of Go-Go, who died last week.
A public viewing will be held from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday at Howard Theatre. The public memorial will follow two days later from noon to 3 p.m. at the Washington Convention Center.
The public is encouraged to use public transportation to reach each event, as parking is limited.
Brown, who was instrumental in creating D.C.’s go-go sound, died May 16 from complications from pneumonia after several weeks in the hospital.
