This past September I had the pleasure of attending an event at the Citlalin Gallery in the Pilsen neighboorhood, 2005 S. Blue Island Avenue Chicago IL 60608, entitled “ArtBeat Chicago X Silent Chicago Reliving Your Childhood“! It was my first time going to a Chicago Silent Party!
I’m sure you’re wondering what a Silent Chicago Party is! Well, it is a party experience like nothing you’ve had before. There are three DJ’s Red (80’s 90’s 2000’s) , Green (Top 40 and EDM), and Blue (Hip Hop), all spin the best music while you sing and dance along.
As you flip from one channel to the other on your headphones powered by Urban Fetes, they change colors from green to red or blue. This turns the event into a silent disco, full of people singing and dancing. Meanwhile a DJ competition rages to get you to listen to their respective color!
Here is a promo for the movement!
For many young professionals in Chicago, the nightlife has grown stale. People are over the loud bars, expensive drinks, tired DJs, and crowded floors. Urban Fêtes, one of the area’s up-and-coming promotion and marketing companies, is shaking up the scene with fresh alternatives that combine substance, style, and socializing.
The event I attended was hosted by The Paradigm CreatVe Group.
The goal of the “ART Beat” is to bring creative’s together in order to exchange ideas and network for the greater good of the artistic culture. They paid tribute to a hand picked popular few of artist in the entertainment industry by way of creating art pieces that represents something about the artist.
We ended the night with a performance of the popular entertainers work by a handpicked independent artist.
3 Djs X Headphones X Art mixed with food, drinks and music calls for a GREAT TIME!
They wanted to push for all painters, dancers and musicians they selected to think above and beyond the normal so the spectators can live in the experience with the artist. The entertainers that they want to pay tribute to are:
● Singers ● Actors
● Musicians ● Dancers
The event’s goal is to promote growth throughout all creative communities while welcoming beginners and spectators into the artist’s world!
