Silent Disco 

When: Fri., Feb. 12, 10 p.m. 2016
Price: $8 ADV, $10 DOS
The concept of the silent disco may have been inspired by a scene from the late-'60s Finnish film A Time of Roses in which partygoers wore headphones. Now, almost 50 years later, it is becoming a nationwide staple, and the Grog Shop has fostered the trend in Cleveland with events sometimes being held at MOCA. It’s a modernized clubbing experience that plays into the isolationism encouraged by current technology: each disco-goer dances to music provided through headphones, while anyone on the outside sees a room full of people dancing in silence. So what’s the appeal when you can dance to music in your headphones at home any day? You’ll be dancing to live mixes by local DJs who specialize in any sort of club music you can imagine: house, tech, bassline, DnB, dubstep, hardcore, tech, tribal, and beyond. At any given time, three DJs will be playing, and you can toggle between them on your headset. How’s that for a custom experience? (Bethany Kaufman)
