The silent dance party has become more and more popular throughout the U.S., but we’ve yet to hear of one going down at a notable location in the Twin Cities. DJ Keezy plans to change that this Friday with “SHHH: Silent Dance Party” at the Nomad. For those who are unfamiliar, silent dance parties usually feature 2 DJs playing at the same time while everyone wears headphones to listen in. The headphones usually have a switch which allows the listeners to flip between the 2 DJs. This event has a STACKED lineup of DJs including Sophia Eris, Tiiiiiiiiiip, Keith Millions, and Sarah White. This one is 21+ to enter and the door is only $10, if you’re looking for something different to do this weekend, look no further.
Memorial Day weekend is coming up quickly, so it’s time to start making plans. Rhymesayer’s annual Soundset Music Festival usually takes the cake, but the Twin Cities still offer a TON of other options over that weekend. Memory Lanes’ annual block party is always one of the year’s better neighborhood get togethers. This year’s musical lineups don’t disappoint with a whooping 20+ acts on the bill spread across 2 days. The weekend will include performances from Dillinger Four, Black Market Brass, JC Brooks, Sarah White, Crunchy Kids, and Tony Peachka to name a few. The lanes will be open and the Summit beers will be on deck, these are family friendly until 10PM, when the party turns 21+ inside. Both days will run you $5 or you could stop by after 10PM for free entry, we suggest you cough up the $5. Click the link below for more information. Memory Lanes Block Party 2017 via Facebook

Sarah White finished off 2016 with the release of a new video for her record titled “Sweet Song.” Directed by Jovante Williams, the visual is striking to say the least. White’s voice glides over the dynamic instrumental holding all parts together like an adhesive. Cameos abound, the visual’s climax sees Sarah and her companion (deM atlaS) enthralled in each other, until finally giving into the electric energy around them. Check out the video for yourself above and keep an eye out for more from Sarah White.
