Dark Sky is a trio of musicians and producers from London. They’re the first non-Brooklyn artists on the label, and, funny story, when they first sent us music, we actually thought they were from Brooklyn. (Shows how much we know.) No matter where they’re from, they’re excellent, and the music they make has found itself perfectly at home on the Mister dancefloor. We’re not gonna bore you with any more words. Just listen to the title track in full above, or listen to clips from all the tracks on the EP below.
We’re easing on into summer in Mister Sunday fashion: Country Boys; Brooklyn-brewed beer, Mexican Cokes, Limonata, homemade sangria and those poplar trees. And, of course, Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter.
This just in: We’ve got the Gowanus back for one more summer.
And we’re not wasting any time getting started. Opening day is May 12th.
If you’ve never joined us at Gowanus Grove, this is what you have to look forward to: Tacos and giant huaraches from Country Boys; Brooklyn-brewed beer, Mexican Cokes, Limonata, and homemade sangria from our bar; and a dancefloor under a grove of poplar trees. Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter will keep the disco ball spinning every Sunday afternoon throughout the summer. It’s gonna be a good time.
We’re doing our part to encourage the warm weather, though, (it seems to be working) by throwing an indoor, springtime edition of Mister Sunday at 12-turn-13. We’ll keep the curtains open on the big windows to let the sun shine in; we’ll hang lights from the beams to make it feel as much like you’re dancing in the trees as possible; and we’ve enlisted our decoration and lighting designer-in-chief, Jeffrey Ralston, to make giant, inflatable flowers. (For real.)
We’ll have mulled wine and Country Boys tacos to warm you from the inside out, and, of course, music from Mister residents Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter, so we imagine you’ll probably get pretty sweaty. The party runs from 3pm to 9pm, and it costs $15; or, if you RSVP to email@example.com and get there before 5pm, it’ll only cost you $10.
Finally, one note for the folks with kids. The last time we did the party, we encouraged you to bring your little ones. We noticed, though, that it pretty quickly became too busy for kids to really be able to run around and have a good time. You are more than welcome to bring the young lads and lasses; we just wanted you to know what to expect.
Alex Burkat is a regular on the Mister Saturday Night dancefloor. Early one morning, after a night of dancing at 12-turn-13, he sent us ‘Shower Scene,’ a triumphant song full of strings and things. Eamon and Justin liked it so much that they decided to do their own version, a dreamier take on the original; and to complete the package, Alex added ‘Ammadomyownthing,’ a slamming, way-off-kilter monster of a track.
