Keep On Summertime

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.

Yale Joins Eamon and Justin


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.

Dance With Me

us-0608-598513-333445-backMan, 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.

Sylvester Is My Hero

I played this song on Sunday, and it’s put me on a major Sylvester kick this week. Dude was exactly who and what he wanted to be: tall, strong and physically imposing, delicately beautiful, firey like a pentecostal preacher, flashy like a disco queen. There was and has been no one like him since he died from AIDS complications at the way-too-young age of forty-one in the late 80s.

His version of ‘Southern Man’ isn’t just the definitive version of Neil Young’s song because of how musically perfect it is; it’s because it was UNBELIEVABLY ballsy for a six-foot-something black man in women’s clothes to open his DEBUT record, in 1973 no less, by wailing out these lyrics in the strongest falsetto anyone’s ever heard: “Southern man better keep your head. Don’t forget what your good book said. Southern change gonna come at last. Now your crosses are burning fast. / I saw cotton, and I saw black. Tall white mansions and little shacks. Southern man, when will you pay them back?”

Sylvester is my hero.

Get It Together

Eamon and Justin are back together again this weekend.

First they’re DJing the closing spot at PS1′s Warm Up party on Saturday. The rest of the lineup is excellent as well. Our very own Archie Pelago plays live followed by the one and only Cibo Matto…

On Sunday the boys take it back down to Industry City for the first time in two weeks. We’re gonna have a funky good time.
