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.
