THE FINAL SOUND OF SILENCE
Tvornica Kulture, Subiceva street 2, 10 pm
The Silent in the Factory party is wrapping up its indoor season with one last loud burst of silence. As usual, there will be three channels of different music to choose from. For those not familiar with silent parties, each guest gets a set of their own headphones with three (or more) different frequencies. Everyone gets to choose what set they want to listen to and their choice is indicated by a different led light on the antenna. This time the red light is for the indie shoegaze crowds, the green light is all about retro, eurovision and trash, and on the blue channel there will be trap, hip hop and r’n’b.

DJ Indy will make a hypnotizing stew of R’n’B, Disco, House, Pop and Rock for the dance floor workers in the old abandoned tar factory turned club. The brave ones can aim for free drinks, literally. When you order 4 schnapps you get to aim at a target and if you score, you get one or two drinks free, depending on that score. While DJ Indy is spinning on the Katran floor, Shock Show floor will be all about the Irish and cardigans.
