Because the mob parties in Boardwalk Empire always have really gross girls, help bring Boulder a way cooler one with Decentralized Dance Party, which's already raged our northern neighbors courtesy of two enterprising Canadian party-studs who somehow aren't both Corey Delaney. Basically, if they get the necessary funding, they'll show up with 300 boomboxes, which they'll hand out, letting you, the party-goer become you, the party-thrower. And in just case you're also the party-asker-abouter, here's a lil FAQ:
Won't the po po shut it down?
No one calls them po po anymore. And no: they give the 5-0 (people still say that) a heads-up to make sure it goes smoothly. They've done it all over Canada with no problems.
At my last handheld-boombox rave, I wore a suit and felt overdressed. Will that happen here?
Weirdly: no. The party's theme is "Strictly Business", and they ask that you dress the part. In Canada, people have even brought desks and water coolers.
How, exactly, do the boomboxes work?
..."Drivers", or something? But at this party, they have everyone tune to the same FM station, then use a big antenna to help you simul-blast "'90s dance, booty bass" that their DJ chooses.
Will they serve booze?
Shame on you. The party's in public, and there are laws against that. If you can't dance without the help of booze, there's always the tried and true method of growing balls. Or maybe just pre-game hard.
Why're they raising money for this? They won't charge me at the door, right?
There is no door to outside, silly! But yeah, it's free. They've gotta pay for travel costs and a bunch of other things, so unless they raise $1K, they can't make the trip. They do have some rad Kickstarter rewards though, like a signed (...by somebody) Nintendo Powerglove, and some high-design t-shirts that are anything but bootleg.
