London and Oslo

Eamon and Justin are headed to London and Oslo this weekend. On Friday night, they’re playing all night at Phonox in Brixton, and on Saturday night, they’re on at Dattera Til Hagen. Tickets and info for both are here. If you know folks in either town, let ’em know. And if you’re nearby, go say hey!

Halloween in the Shadow of the Moon

On the eve of the eve of the eve of Hallow’s Eve, we’re doing our annual dance in a place we know works best – surrounded by the trees at Nowadays. We bring you Mister Halloween Night: In The Shadow of the Moon, a seance under the stars.

Don your cloaks, you deerskin hoods and your comfortable shoes, for seers Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter will conjure the future and past with ritualistic rhythms. The dance floor will be shrouded in light to beckon the spirits; and we’ll have potions, ales and mulled wine to keep you warm on the inside and outside. Beyond the drinks, we’ll have a couple other things to make sure it’s temperate.

Advance tickets are always a good idea, and wearing a costume is essential. If you need inspiration, think witches, druidic robes, ouija boards, The Wicker Man.

The dance runs from 5pm to 11pm, and you can RSVP to get in for $20 before 7pm. Just keep in mind that the only way to guarantee admission is with an advance ticket.

We look forward to communing with you. For now, goodbye!

 

The Mister Sunday Season Closer

The outdoor season has come to a close. Our last Mister Sunday before we pack up the trees for the winter and head inside is this Sunday, October 22nd. Come get your dance on. The weather seems to agree that you should do this.

RSVP for early, discounted entry, and get tickets here. The party runs from 3pm to 9pm is all ages and all walks of life. Skaters, non-conformists, grandmas, leather daddies, dogs, babies and everybody else. Just as long as you’re nice.

We’ll see ya soon!

Repealing The Cabaret Law

 
It’s a really important day for arts and culture in New York City. We can all do something to make an impact.

The NYC Cabaret Law – a law that makes dancing illegal at all but about 100 venues in New York – is the subject of a City Council public hearing today. 16 Council Members have signed on to the repeal of the law; 10 more are needed for cabaret to be DONE.

Every New York City voter can do something now to see it go away.

Please take a moment to call your NYC Council Member. You can find your Council Person’s name and number by entering your address here.

Once you’ve found your Council Member’s name, look at the list below to find their legislative office number, and call them. Don’t wait until later. Do it now while it’s on the top of your head. It’ll take you less than five minutes!

Council Members in bold have signed on. All the others are a priority on the call list. If a council member hears from even a handful of constituents, they take note, so this action is truly meaningful.

When you get someone on the phone, ask them to vote in favor of the Let NYC Dance Bill #1652. There’s a nice script (and a bevy of information) on the Let NYC Dance site if you need some guidance. If no one picks up the phone, leave a message.

Without further ado, here’s that list of Council Members:

Bout Time: Mister Sunday in London, August 27th


The last time we did our own proper party in London was almost a year ago (in that big ol’ church in Hackney). But after a long search for a special place to do our thing in the Big Smoke, we’ve found it, and we’ve set a date.On Sunday, August 27th we’re taking over York Hall, a storied Victorian building in Bethnal Green with a nearly hundred-year-old basement bathhouse and a boxing gymnasium where Lennox Lewis and Audley Harrison have duked it out.We’re taking over the skylit main room for Carnival Sunday, installing a nice sound system, bringing way too many records, blowing up some balloons and getting the wood floors primed for an afternoon dance. The party goes from 4pm to 11pm.We’ll have drinks and food that won’t break the bank. Bring a friend or two, or come solo and make one. Tickets are here.

We’ll see ya soon.
