lindy bomb

lindy bomb
 v. phr.— «What is a Lindy Bomb? When dancers converge on one non-swing location with some sort of portable music source to dance, exposing the public to the dance. Another version is to go to hip hop/seventies club etc and dance swing. This was all the rage for a while until it was discovered that the actual effect was opposite of the intended effect (to get people to want to dance).» —“Dan and Tiffiny Class FAQ” by Nightowl 23 Skidoo (Denver, Colo.) Nov. 19, 2004.
