Best Flash Mob - 2008
FlashDance, put on by Amandeep Jawa
Step one: E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list. Step two: Await message with the 411 for the next roving street dance party. Step three: Show up and boogie while onlookers wonder what the heck is going on, or just stop asking questions and join in themselves. Started around two years ago by a Silicon Valley software engineer (the rare kind who actually can whip out the moves on the dancefloor) who lives in the Mission and can be spotted every once in a while wearing a giant disco ball costume, Jawa has been coordinating the dances since he spotted a salsa dance party along the Seine in Paris and thought, "Why not in San Francisco?" He feeds funk, soul, pop, and some Indian electronica off his MacBook through some amps at such locales as the 24th Street BART station or Embarcadero Plaza.
now this is what i call a 'truly unique san francisco event' where you dont pay 20$ to enter a box but have twice the fun! Deep the love and effort u put into it is laudable! Love it!
Flashdance rocks. Also, the sound system is mounted on a trike and pedaled over to the venue - how cool!
