In case you didn’t know, Mister Sunday is going through September, probably even into October. Indian summer or sweater weather, we’ll be dancing. This Sunday we’ve got a really special treat: Justin takes over the turntables from 3pm to 9pm. Gonna be goooooood. Tickets for this Sunday and all the other parties in September are here.
This Sunday, Yale Evelev is playing some records from his amazing collection for the first hour-and-a-half of the party. Yale runs Luaka Bop, a label that’s been responsible for putting out an incredible array of excellent music over the past twenty-five years. (Os Mutantes, William Oneyabor, Shuggie Otis, Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, Susana Baca, David Byrne.) He’s also been a musical mentor to Justin and is a generally great guy. We’re excited to have him.
Man, it’s been so good!
From little kids to great grandfathers, the dopest group of people we’ve seen together in a long time has populated the Mister Sunday dancefloor over the past couple weeks. Eamon and Justin have been in fine form as well. We recorded their set two weeks ago, and it’s dripping with vibes – see post below.
The trend continues this Sunday. See you then.
Into 2014 we go… Not quite what Isaac Asimov predicted, but pretty darn close. (Google it!) Anyway, here’s how we’ll be celebrating the coming of the new year, Mister Saturday Night style:
There’s a set number of tickets so it’s relatively intimate (buy them here), and there’s enough room to dance with no crazy lines for drinks and such. We let the ball drop in an easy-going way, so it doesn’t feel too forced; we stock the bar with bubbly, and, as usual, we set up our soundsystem, abandon our cell phones and cameras for the evening, and let Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter loose on the turntables.
12-turn-13 will be decked out from top to bottom in black and white, and we’re asking you to deck yourself out in all black and white, too. You don’t have to wear a tux or anything (though you certainly can if you want), just whatever’s comfortable for you.
The festivities start at 9pm for folks with tickets, and if you’re celebrating the ball drop elsewhere, the doors will open for non-ticket holders at 2am.
No matter when you come, we’re looking forward to kicking the year off with you.

Justin & Eamon all night long at 12-turn-13.
