Consumerism. Ego. Self Marketing. Vanity. All are terms synonymous with our modern social-media dominated lives. This is no more evident than in what used to be a called the underground music community: a bastion of togetherness, a cry out against the establishment, the use of music to create and develop connections, memories and relationships. Today we are tagged, scanned and identified, our every move watched, being forced to conform, the system inflating our individuality, removing that unity that can define an entire generation.
Special Guest NTA
Now, we pay homage at the altar of DJs sat atop their pedestals, surveying their congregation with the dollar signs flashing before their eyes. The music, that primal element, is no longer our focus: we watch what unfolds on the tiny screen of our smartphones, relaying a low resolution version of life to our fellow zombies, who consume all in a vain attempt to outdo the other, to reach the top of the social pyramid. Little do they know that pyramid is made up of the current moments of their lives: unlived, unloved and played through tinny speakers at a low bitrate.
The question we ask is this: can we remove the egoism and narcissism for one night and truly reopen human connection through music? Can we take in that moment uncompressed and unrecorded, the memories being a melody, new friend, new lover?
We think there is hope. We ask you this: leave your identity at the door. Disconnect yourself from the web. Join us for the music and community, not the celebrity or hype. The music is electronic: our lives are not.
- Lose your identity. Express yourself. We will provide masks in order for you to take those first steps, but they are in no way mandatory.
- Please don't use your phone in the venue, or better yet leave it at home. Let the night be an adventure and create your connections in person.
- Respect our anonymity: no photos or videos.
- The use of social media to promote a disconnection may be ironic but it is those of us who are plugged in who we wish to reach. Please also share by word of mouth.
