Start the new year off right, by grabbing some bubbly and dancing 2020 off from the comfort of your living room. On Friday, January 8, 2021 from 9-10:30 p.m. MT Sinistarr, Erin Stereo and Boyhollow, are streaming beats to raise funds for three creative Colorado-based nonprofits supporting local musicians through COVID relief funds.
Presented by Tyler, The Creative and supported by Loudspeaker, the Stay Home Silent Disco 2, is free to attend, and a private donor will donate $1 per view — up to $10,000. Each of these diverse DJ sets will stream simultaneously at stayhomesilentdisco.com and viewers can toggle between sets on that page to raise money for organizations supporting Colorado artists.
Sinistarr is a prolific Drum and Bass DJ in the underground dance scenes, and is playing a set benefitting the Colorado-based Artists of Color Fund, which was developed in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The pandemic has impacted communities of color disproportionately hard, and this organization gives microgrants to BIPOC artists in Colorado.
Recently named Best House DJ by The Denver Westword, Erin Stereo’s House music will ignite and delight the dancefloor. Her ‘house from home’ set is benefitting Youth on Record, whose music programs support at-risk youth in Denver. Since the pandemic, their programming has transitioned to virtual platforms to make music education even more accessible.
Boyhollow, of Lipgloss fame, is arguably responsible for creating Denver’s indie-dance scene having co-founded and hosted America’s longest running indie dance party since 2001. His set is benefitting Rocky Mountain Music Relief, which provides financial and in-kind support to individuals, groups and organizations within the music industry that have been impacted by the pandemic.
The event is free to attend and participants don’t need a Twitch account to stream, but will need one to participate in the chat. For updates be sure to RSVP to the event on Facebook. Please note that we are not encouraging in-person gatherings — this party should be enjoyed by the company of your household and via the chat with other fans across the world.
