First Thursday with DJ Prashant + PlayMaker Launch Party
Posted 09 August 2017
Every First Thursday, we open our doors to the community: whether you're just strolling by, headed to a gallery down the street, or here for a show, come on in and join us for local music, snacks a-plenty, and a complimentary beer from our neighbors over at Deschutes.
For September's First Thursday, we've invited DJ Prashant to play some Bollywood-inspired mixes, and teach some Bollywood dance moves (and show off some of his own!).
We'll also be officially unveiling our new online loyalty program, PlayMaker! Learn how to earn points by attending events and completing activities around The Armory and redeem your points on one-of-a kind rewards.
When you're tired of racking up points, dip into the U.S. Bank Mainstage for a tour of our set for Fun Home.
5:00 - 8:00 p.m.

A one-of-a-kind Bollywood entertainer, Prashant is a singer, choreographer, MC & DJ with one simple agenda, to make people dance all night long to an irresistible blend of world’s greatest dance beats.
In January 2010, he founded Jai Ho!, a popular dance party in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco & San Diego. The innovative themes that set Jai Ho! apart are transforming the club culture of the west coast bringing celebratory elements of Indian culture (like Holi Colors, Dandiya Sticks etc) into the nightclub scene. Additionally, Prashant has been teaching dance for over 9 years now. His Portland based semi-professional dance troupe is comprised of 35 dancers from all walks of life, united by their love for all things Bollywood.
In his 2011 TEDx talk, this Cornell graduate shared his story of transformation from Intel engineer to being celebrated as one of America’s top exuberant Bollywood entertainer. Prashant continues to inspire others to follow their dreams, one dance party at a time.
