Soul Train

Rick Gold is having a party on a train, and he challenges you to be so cool: “It usually takes about two to three years for stuff on the coast to seep into the interior, so to speak,” he says. “But Denver’s becoming pretty hip and cool. I wonder if this kind of thing would go over?”

Gold, an attorney who relocated here about a year ago from San Diego, is talking about his Light Rail Flash Mob and Dance Party, which was inspired by a similar event he attended in San Francisco ― which, in turn, he notes, was probably inspired by the original Tube Parties in London in 2004: “They’d get on the train and just party until the Tube cops came and kicked them off.” Now he wants to bring the impromptu dance-shindigs to us.

Here’s his plan: Meet up tonight at the Dave & Buster’s at I-25 and Colorado Boulevard a little before 8 p.m. and walk over to the light-rail station to board the 8 p.m. F train downtown. Then the music starts and the dance party gets poppin’ ― all the way to 16th and California. All it’ll cost you is train fare and your bourgeois illusions, man.

Are you ready for this, Denver? If so, just show up ― and if you’re really excited about it, Gold says he could use some help with the planning. E-mail him at rickgold@gmail.com.
