When URBN SOL silent discos began to take shape in inner-SE Portland this fall, dance friends took it upon themselves to work WITH and FOR the houseless residents of the area to make a happy and healthy dance (and LIFE) environment. They've delivered veritable tons of supplies, from hats and mittens to medical supplies and food. They've made the effort to get to know our houseless neighbors and their needs, and check in on them when the weather is especially rough. On top of all that, these exceptional folk provide fresh water, hot chai, and lots and lots of sanitizer for the participants of the silent disco.
The Epicenter - an industrial warehouse music venue and shop space, with custom made sound, stage, and lighting - was slated to open in March 2020, literally the week that the world shut down. The Ep is struggling to stay afloat while we wait for life to return to normalcy, in hopes that the dream will be realized and the venue will be able to support and showcase artists, musicians, and dancers. Until that time, the space is grateful for the opportunity to showcase some truly incredible DJ friends -- virtually! Half of your donations will go to help keep The Epicenter around so that we'll have a place to boogie together - in person - as soon as safely possible.
We can all use connection right now - even through Zoom parties and chatting on Twitch - so as you're digging the jams and planning for those sweet sweet springtime shenanigans, please consider donating and sharing the event with your friends.
