From Snap chatting, Vine-ing, and partying, undoubtedly, the new generation has almost completely gone digital.
For the millennials, cellphones have become another body part and head phones have become part of everyday wardrobe.
But, when it comes to partying, who would’ve thought headphones in a club would ignite such a virtual turn up?
In an era where block parties and kickbacks were the places to be, it was amazing to find out that these shindigs are arguably vintage versions of “LIT”, thanks to Silent Parties.
The thought of it sounds like a bunch of unsynchronized dancers full of happy juice. But, at a silent party, attendees move to the beat of their own drum, literally.
A silent party is a get together in a club setting . Upon entry, you are given neon headphones that allow you to listen to your preferred genre of music.
The color coded neon lights on the headphones indicate which Dj is getting the most plays.
The live Dj plays music that transfers to your headphones through a wave transmitter.
No, the science of a Silent Party doesn’t sound very exciting, but the event itself is one worth experiencing.
“At first, I thought it was a crazy idea but once you actually experience it, it takes partying to a different level,” said Brittany Daniel, a recent Silent Party attendee.
The visual of someone twerking on one end of the room and another couple slow grinding on the other end is not uncanny.
Why? The technology in the headphones allow you to switch your music channel at any time. Meaning, people vibe to what they want when they want, at the push of a button.
This new virtual experience gives glow up a new meaning. It gives party goers an opportunity to express their eccentric dance moves without looking weird. Like Beyonce, Silent Party attendees are always on beat! This trend is definitely one for the books.
