Boston Common, northwest corner @ Beacon St & Charles St
Friday, May 16

In the last several months, people in cities around the world (most recently in NY on 4/18) have gathered for silent raves, dancing into the hours of the night to the music of their choice on their personal music players.

A Silent Rave, or Mobile Club, or Silent Disco, is a simple concept. Hundreds, hopefully thousands, of people from any background of life turn up in a public place at a pre-arranged time, turn on their Walkmans, CD players, and iPods and dance freely to whatever music they choose to listen to!

See these wikipedia articles for more info:

Imagine the pure liberation at dancing however you want to, to whatever music your heart desires from Ozzy Osbourne to Justice, and not caring what anyone else thinks!

It's time for Boston to have a dance party of its own.

Check out the pics from Silent Rave New York on Facebook and YouTube.
There's some great ones posted from recent Mobile Clubs at the Tate Modern Gallery and St Paul's Cathedral, London for you to enjoy!

Please invite literally everyone you know in order that we can spread this and make it not only happen, but the first of many of these fantastic events! This will only get off the ground with your help, so please do whatever you can to bring enjoyment to this great city!

Punks; Goths; Ravers; Space-Cases; Indie-kids; Electro-heads; House fiends; Commuters; Teenagers; Retirees; Businessmen; Musicians; Emos; Jocks; Geeks; Teachers; Students; Christians; Jews; Muslims; Atheists; Agnostics; Downtowners and Southies; this event is for anyone who wants to dance and experience something truly wonderful!
