Have you heard of these things called Silent Discos?
Admittedly, I had not. Â And when someone had brought a “Silent Disco” up to my attention, it sounded like something weird religious kids would do at a christian retreat.
Turns out, a “Silent Disco” is a popular event where everyone is given headphones, and a DJ plays the same music into all the headphones, and everyone at the silent disco dances and sings around to the song. Â If you are a spectator, you will hear no music, only see people jumping around in sync.
This year at The Lark Street BID’s LarkFest (Saturday, September 25th), there is going to be a Silent Disco! Â (brought to you by the amazingly awesome restaurant if I do say so myself… Bombers Burrito Bar!) Â The Silent Disco will take place on Hudson Avenue, right off of Lark Street.
Should be entertaining to say the least.
If you can’t wrap your head around what I’m talking about, watch the YouTube video below.
By the way, do you hear that annoying baby crying in the background? Â Don’t you want to put duct tape over it’s mouth? Â (actually, I can’t quite tell if it’s a baby or a velociraptor).
Festivals are not for babies. Â Especially loud, screaming babies. Â It’s called a SILENT disco. Â Not a Screaming Baby Disco. Â I’ve been to one of those before. Â It was in Christy’s living room during her home birth, and all I can say is that I still have nightmares from some of the disturbing imagery and noises I heard that night.
