Silent Disco at the Brickhouse on September 9th, 7-10 p.m.

A Silent Disco is an event where people dance to music heard through wireless headphones. The music is transmitted directly to each person’s headphones – on three separate channels – rather than played through speakers. Those without headphones hear no music (other than people who sing along to what they are hearing). The three channels of music can be selected using a simple switch on each person’s headphones, and the headphones light up blue, red, or green to show visually what channel you are listening to. People can dance to the same tune as others with them, or to their own selection. If you hear a song you don’t like or get tired of a particular style of music, just switch channels.   Proceeds from this event will go to support Stability First, in Martinsville.
