Dust off your dancing shoes and plug in your headphones! Stay Home Silent Disco 2 is a way to have fun during isolation while raising money to support Colorado COVID-relief for the arts. The FREE event starts at 9 p.m. on Friday, January 8 and is just like any other “silent” disco party — it has three channels for you to alternate between and you’ll be encouraged to plug into your headphones.
Each of the three artists are raising money for a different COVID and/or arts non-profit in Colorado. Through a private donor, the event will be raising $1 for every view that the three streams get — up to $10,000.
Basically, every time you click, local arts groups (Artists of Color Fund, Youth on Record and Rocky Mountain Music Relief) get money.
The Lineup includes:
Sinistarr is a prolific Drum and Bass DJ in the underground dance scenes and is playing a set benefiting the Colorado-based Artists of Color Fund, which was developed in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The pandemic has impacted communities of color disproportionately hard, and this organization gives micro-grants to BIPOC artists in Colorado.
Recently named Best House DJ by The Denver Westword, Erin Stereo’s house music will ignite and delight the dance floor. Her ‘house from home’ set is benefiting Youth on Record, whose music programs support at-risk youth in Denver. Since the pandemic, their programming has transitioned to virtual platforms to make music education even more accessible.
Boyhollow, of Lipgloss fame, is arguably responsible for creating Denver’s indie-dance scene having co-founded and hosted America’s longest running indie dance party since 2001. His set is benefiting Rocky Mountain Music Relief, which provides financial and in-kind support to individuals, groups and organizations within the music industry that have been impacted by the pandemic.
