We arrived in Chicago yesterday and were surprised to learn that a NATO summit is taking place, the city is on lockdown, massive protests are expected, etc.
People were concerned that we’d get shut down or things might turn sour. But we coordinate with the police in every city we visit and have coordinated with the CPD and it’s all good, so and have no worries and come on down!
Everyone’s favorite feature of the Decentralized Dance Party is that it’s 100% inclusive and has no political agenda. Our only message is “Let’s get together and have fun together in our public spaces.”
As such, we are extending an invitation to all NATO attendees, police, secret service members, protesters, and any other Chicagonians who want to join us for an evening of good, clean fun. For one night, let’s set aside our differences and come together to sing and dance and have a very good time. It can be done.
We’re meeting at the intersection of 9th Street and S. Michigan Ave. at 8:00 SHARP!
Don’t forget your suit and tie!
