Decentralized Dance Party and Newmindspace present Boombox Party NYC, a spontaneous dance party where participants carry boomboxes, tune into the master broadcast, wear full business attire and in this case, dance in the streets of New York (secret location not yet disclosed). This event is slated to occur Saturday, January 21st, 2012 at 9 PM. As of this writing, the organizers are still looking for additional boombox and cash donations to make this event happen. A fundraising page has been created on IndieGoGo to collect monetary donations. This event is part of Decentralized Dance Party’s Strictly Business Tour which will continue to tour the United States throughout the spring.
It consists of thousands of Party people, carrying boomboxes, and a DJ who wears a backpack, containing an FM radio transmitter.
All the boomboxes are tuned into the DJ’s master FM broadcast, resulting in a mobile, synchronized sound system. This portable dance Party roams the night, generating complete awesomeness, street by street and block by block, onto buses and subways, into public fountains and beyond. Inevitably interfacing with the public, together we create an infectious epidemic of fun. A roaming Party adventure that lasts all night long!
The theme for Boombox Party NYC is “strictly business”:
This is the Strictly Business Tour. That means you MUST wear Business Attire (suits, ties, cufflinks, glasses, nice shoes, sexy skirts, gel that hair, etc) and bring along as much business paraphernalia as possible (wheeled office chairs, briefcases, rolodexes, calculators, coffee machines+mugs, water coolers, filing cabinets, etc.
