For decades, the Santa Monica Pier’s West End has been a destination for fishermen, street performers, seaside dining, and tourists posing in front of the world’s best sunsets. But, starting Sunday July 27th, the majestic venue at the end of the Pier welcomes music lovers and groovers for a silent dance party for the first time ever at this iconic location. Silent Frisco and Henry Lawrence Presents announce the new Silent Frisco Seaside Soiree: a one-of-a-kind outdoor music series under the sun with an infinite view of the Pacific.

Each installment breaks down into two segments: “Sunshine Sessions” and “Sunset Showdowns.” Sunshine Sessions will run from 2:00 – 5:00 pm and  feature dreamy daytime beats fit for audiences of all ages from the likes of KCRW superstars Jeremy Sole, Mario Cotto, DJ Valida, and Dan Wilcox. Looking for an outing for the whole family? Bring the kids! Kids 12 and under are free with a ticketed adult. Or, keep it adults-only and pair the music with a margarita from MariaSol for the ultimate Sunday Funday.

Sunset Showdowns will then take over the headphones’ two-channels from 5:00 – 9:00 pm as some of LA’s most illustrious DJ crews battle for dominance. Guests can choose their soundtrack with a simple flip of the switch. The DJs will bask in the glow of the pink SoCal sky, which provides an awe-inspiring backdrop to their eclectic sounds. Crews participating in the Sunset Showdown include LAMP, Touch Vinyl DJs, Headtron, Take 2 Entertainment, GottaDanceDirty, Dart DJs, Graff, Fortune 421, High Tide, The Do Lab, theLIFT, TheGoodVibe, and Motown on Mondays. Dance the day away and into the night at one of the city’s most spectacular settings.

“SCENE. NOT HEARD.” These words exemplify the mission, challenge, and lifeblood of Silent Frisco. This San Francisco-based crew of sonic missionaries turns impossible public performance challenges into powerful outpourings of free expression. They use cutting edge technology to enable artistic, political, and educational expression in locations where “noise” has previously made such action impractical or illegal.

WHEN:
Every Sunday, July 27 – September 21, 2014 | 2:00 – 5:00 and 5:00 – 9:00 pm
