About 300 Silicon Valley insiders were treated to a private party earlier this month with performances from Jane’s Addiction, The Killers and Snoop Dogg. Rolling Stone reports “Sean Parker, the Napster/Facebook dude portrayed by Justin Timberlake in the film The Social Network“ bought a warehouse, invited Jane’s Addiction, the Killers, Snoop Dogg and Kaskade to perform and “invited his digital music industry VIP friends” to party.
Among those spotted at the intimate show were Spotify CEO Daniel Ek and Napster co-founder Sean Fanning. Rolling Stone reports, “it was obvious from the minute a slimmed-down, acoustic configuration of the Killers took the stage that Parker had thrown a party just to party: He rushed the front row with Ek, jumped on chairs reserved for the press and knocked over an entire bottle of tequila.”
The magazine summed up the evening saying, “the Killers spoke to those attendees who claim they ‘like music’ but can’t name any artist in particular. Kaskade turned every late-night programmer into slightly sketchy rave kids. Jane’s Addiction, meanwhile, was lighting up that large part of the crowd in their 30s or older. And while the programmer world isn’t exactly filled with OGs, Snoop’s gangsta rap hit the spot with just about everyone.”
You can attempt to recreate the party yourself using the videos below, but you have to bring your own chairs, VIP’s and tequila:
