We’re back for another edition of Planetarium, our immersive experience dedicated to the music we love that’s not for the dancefloor.
We’ve once again reserved an amazing private loft space with a beautiful hi-fi system, and on it, records and live music will be played to get lost in.
There are couches and chairs, and you can bring blankets, sleeping bags, pillows or anything else you’d like to make yourself comfortable. We only do a handful of reservations so that there’s plenty of room to spread out.
This session goes from 7pm to midnight on Friday, February 24th. This date is special, as it’s the release date for Justin Carter’s album The Leaves Fall. For the occasion, Justin will DJ alongside Eamon Harkin and perform live. Accompanying Justin live and playing solo lives sets are cellist Marika Hughes and keyboardist Jason Lindner. Marika has recorded with Yo Yo Ma, Tin Hat Trio and Mr. Bungle, to name a few. Jason is the longtime leader of The Jason Lindner Big Band as well as the integral keyboardist on all of David Bowie’s final album, Blackstar.
You can bring your own drinks (there’s no bar) and food, and we’ll have all the creature comforts that you might otherwise need inside so you never have to leave the bubble we’re creating.
Because we’re doing this at someone’s home, we’ll only send the location info to people who reserve a ticket in advance. So you know how to plan, we can tell you it’s not too far from Nowadays, less than five minutes from the Halsey L.
We’re looking forward to getting lost in music with you. Tickets are here.
Once a month in the winter, we bring the big, warm sound system to Shea Stadium for an intimate daytime jam. Sunlight streams through the windows, we string up the garden lights, and we dance it all out. The party’s all ages.
Advance tickets are always a good idea, though we’ll have some tickets at the door. If you’re in a financial tough spot and would like to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s more important than ever to be together and dancing, and we don’t want you to miss out because of financial constraints. We’ll do our best to accommodate you.
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. And now I understand what they meant. Here are the things that brought a smile to my face in an often tumultuous 2016.
Earth Disciples “Peace, Love and Harmony” In February, I went to Jamaica. Most of the trip was spent in Port Antonio (Piggy’s forever), but one day, my friend Corey and I did a trip to Kingston to dig for records and check out the Trenchtown Culture Yard. As we walked through the yard, we saw a group of guys sitting in a window across the way. When we got close, our guide walked us into the room behind them, where there was a little studio, with a man named Ziggy at the controls. He played us a couple solo pieces from an album he’d done recently, and then he called in the guys from the window. Turns out that the three of them were Earth Disciples, the first band Marley recorded in Tuff Gong other than his own. (I did a little internet sleuthing and found this article about them pasted into a message board.) Over thirty years later, they’ve still got it. (If you wanna hear the original tune, this is it.)
It’s New Year’s Eve with the Mister. We’re doing it at a small loft we use off the L train. The floors are wood, and the room sounds great. No big flashy lights or open bars, just a cell phone-free dancefloor and a handful of good people getting lost in the tunes.
Tickets are here. You’ll notice that we’re keeping it mysterious on the ticketing page – that’s because we wanna keep it intimate. We figure that if you’re looking here on our homepage, you’re familiar with what we do. If not, just check our rules, and make sure they sound good to you, and if so, come ring in the year with us.
