to keep something low key: to not announce it; to have a quiet gathering; opposite of a large party or big group of people; not much emphasis, closely aligned with a normal night out doing the usual stuff.

A word to describe a state of keeping on the low and not to have your name in everyones mouth. Low key is also a state of which someone does not want to be talked about or be heaty.

for example if someone is too heaty or has too much beef and is too "known" they might get advice to keep low key for a while
