Decentralized Dance Party – Asheville Edition

Tom and Gary’s Decentralized Dance Party came to Asheville Tuesday, May 22. According to Tom and Gary’s website, the party consists of hundreds of Party People, carrying boomboxes, and a DJ who wears a backpack, containing an FM radio transmitter. All the boomboxes are tuned into the DJ’s master FM broadcast, resulting in a mobile, synchronized sound system. Row upon row of old boom boxes lined the steps of Pritchard Park, were picked up by revelers and carried through Asheville to City County Plaza, with a stop at Pack Square Fountain. The Dance Party came into Asheville following successful events in Minneapolis, Detroit and Chicago.
