Hey, folks. Below are the details for this summer’s outdoor Mister Sunday season.
Before we get into it, though, let us take a moment to say how good it feels to know, after years of being unsure where Mister Sunday would be from one summer to the next, that we have a home of our own, a place we’ll be for years to come. We’re excited to get settled in.
The first Mister Sunday of the summer will be on May 15th. It’ll happen every weekend from then until the end of October.
The party will still run from 3pm to 9pm, still have our friends from Country Boys serving up huaraches (along with Nowadays’ in-house victuals), and it’ll still be all ages, pet-on-leash-friendly and dance-centric.
One new thing is that it’ll cost $20 to get in. We don’t take raising the price lightly, but since we started charging $15 in 2013, our costs for throwing the party have gone up, and now that we’re in Nowadays, which is smaller than Industry City, we need to fill the gap a little. Good news is that we’ll still do a $10 early bird ticket for folks on a tight budget.
On Nowadays being smaller than Industry City: for the past few years, the first Mister Sundays of the season have been très populaire. With the limited capacity at the ‘days, we’re near certain we’ll sell out in advance for at least the first three parties. Get tickets now. You will be happy you did.
Okee doke. That’s all for now. We’ll talk to you soon!
Since we started Mister Saturday Night, we’ve been trying to create the best environment to connect people to each other through music. That energy has all been focused on the dancefloor.
Recently, though, we’ve been thinking about all the music we love that’s not for dancing, and we’ve been working on a way to experience that music that is as immersive and communal as being with others on a dancefloor. In about two-and-a-half weeks we’re starting something that aims to do that. It’s called Planetarium.
For the first Planetarium, we’ve reserved an amazing private loft space with a beautiful hi-fi system on which we’ll be playing music to get lost in. There will be couches and chairs, and you can bring blankets, sleeping bags, pillows or anything else you’d like to make yourself comfortable. We’ll only do a handful of reservations so that there’s plenty of room to spread out.
The session will go from 7pm to midnight on Friday, June 24th. You can bring your own drinks (there’s no bar), and there will be a space reserved for smoking 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.
Tickets are here. Because we’re trying to leave a lot of space to stretch out, there aren’t a ton of them. It’s a good idea to reserve early.
We really can’t wait to share some music with you in this new way.
Episode Three of our collaboration with Boiler Room is here. We filmed this one at Silent Barn back on a rainy night in February. The intimate crew of dancers were in top form, and the tunes were better than any episode before.
The dancers were Kevin Jones, Eriko Tsubosaka, Karen Ng, Mayu Shirai, Leanne Michelle Watson, Tommy Zapatista, Seiji Carpenter, Bret Mantyk, Chris Reid, Bunji Fromartz, Qiu Yi Wu, Yoko Sakao Ohama, Kazushi Matsugaya, Li Jia Gong, LeeSah Pitts, Akojaiye Ausar, David Vybe Le Liberateur, Kenzie J Illnest, Brian Bucket Kim and Julissa Sarabia.
And the DJs were, obviously, Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter.
