No way is the city done mourning the Godfather of Go-Go. There’s no official word yet on arrangements for Chuck Brown‘s funeral, but Mike DeBonis reports:
According to daughter Cherita Whiting, plans are in place for an all-day public viewing at the Howard Theatre next Tuesday, May 29. A funeral service will follow on Thursday, May 31. The venue has not been determined, but Whiting said it is likely to be held at either the Washington Convention Center or Verizon Center.
But over email, Brown’s manager, Tom Goldfogle, writes:
The details regarding the viewing and services for Mr. Brown are still being finalized and are subject to change until they are finalized both in date and location.
We are working around the clock to finalize. We are hoping [to make an announcement] tomorrow, definately this week.
So, yeah: We’ll let you know when we definitely know.
