Give It Back

MSN_2011_joyorbison2Hey, folks.

This is Justin Carter. Eamon and I have some downtime between parties and thought it would be a good time to let you know about something new we’re starting.

In December we read a New York Times story about an eleven-year-old homeless girl named Dasani Coates, and it hit us hard. Not only did the little girl and her family live in squalor; that squalor existed less than a mile from 12-turn-13, Gowanus Grove and our own homes.

We’ve always thought of our parties as opportunities to cultivate a community, and we’ve felt a great responsibility to do just that. But reading about Dasani made us think about our responsibility to communities beyond Mister Saturday Night.

With that in mind, we’ve decided that from now on, we’re making giving back part of what we do. We’re starting by giving ten percent of Mister Saturday Night and Mister Sunday’s net profits in 2014 to The Robin Hood Foundation, arguably the most effective organization combatting poverty here in New York City. (For a very compelling argument on effective giving, check out Peter Singer’s TED Talk.)

We’ve decided to announce this publicly because we believe that in addition to our ability to raise money, we also have an opportunity to start a conversation about giving back. Just as your participation is vital to the culture and quality of our parties, it’s also integral to improving our larger communities – in Brooklyn, New York City and beyond.

Eamon and I are not wealthy philanthropists, non-profit board members or anything extraordinary; we’re just a couple guys who DJ and throw parties. But we believe that we still have a responsibility to help people in need, and we hope our decision encourages others to take action as well.

If you want to ask us any questions, or if you’ve got any ideas to share, please get in touch. Thanks for taking the time to read, and thanks, most of all, for being the most important part of what we do.

General Ludd – Fit of Passion EP

General Ludd is Rich McMaster from New Jersey and Tom Marshallsay from Canterbury. The guys met at the Glasgow Art School, where Rich studied environmental art and Tom studied fine art. Their first collaborations were interactive sound installations, but that quickly gave way to all night music making sessions, some of which resulted in this fine twelve-inch. Both tracks have already become staples at Mister Saturday Night parties. Eamon tends to play the heady, “Brothers and Sisters,” and Justin tends to play the absolutely crushing, “Woo Ha,” but we’re sure you’ll like them both.

The record is now available at our online store.

Mister In Europe

MSN_2014_Feb8_Glasgow_600

MSN_2014_Feb15_Belfast_600

We’re on the road again this week for four dates in Europe including two Mister Saturday Night parties in Glasgow and Belfast. Tickets for the Glasgow party, this weekend, can be had here whilst full details of the Belfast party, the weekend after, are here.

We’ll also be playing in London this Friday, the 7th, with Optimo and Bradley Zero at Bussey Building in Peckham for Deadly Rhythm for what looks to be a great party. Details and tickets here. And then on the 14th we’ll be popping over to Hamburg to play all night at the Golden Pudel, one of our favorite spots to play.

We hope to see you out!

New To Us

MSN_2014_Feb1-V1A(1)
We hope you’re having a great new year. 2014 has been a busy one for us thus far. We’ve been gearing up for a string of new releases on the label and searching for some new spaces as 12-turn-13 works out some kinks.

For our next party, we’re taking over Glasslands. We’re redecorating the space and bringing in our own soundsystem, so even if you’ve been there before, expect it to feel totally different (and just as good as any loft party we’ve ever thrown).

Looking forward to trying something new with you…

UPDATE: Advanced tickets have now sold out. We’ll have a very limited number at the door at 11:30pm, so we’d suggest you get down early. We may admit more people through the course of the night, space permitting, but we’re trying out Glasslands for the first time, and we want to keep it comfortable, so we’ll see how the night goes and how the room feels. See you on Saturday.

No Mister This Sunday. But Don’t Worry.

Hey, folks. We’re canceling this weekend’s Mister Sunday at 12-turn-13. If you bought a ticket, you’ll get a refund very soon. And don’t worry. We’ll have a make-up date before you know it. We just posted Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter’s mix from May 26 at Gowanus Grove, so you can at least get your musical fix this week.

Y’all keep warm, and we’ll see you soon.
