We’re doing something different for this New Year’s celebration. Instead of a big, nighttime blowout, we’ve reserved a small loft (a perhaps familiar second-floor space with wood floors, good sound, inexpensive drinks, and an outdoor balcony for a chat and fresh air), and we’re doing a New Year’s Day Mister Sunday.
New Year’s Eve parties can get crazy, and this year, more than ever, we want to ring it in with a dancefloor that’s really tuned in. We thought a daytime party on the 1st would be the best way to do that.
You can get tickets here. We’ll send the address out to ticket-holders with ample time to make plans, but don’t worry, if you’ve been to a Mister Sunday indoors, you’ll know the spot – it’s really easy to get to.
It’s the last party of our series at Silent Barn. To close it out, we’ve invited down Beautiful Swimmers to play with Eamon. The Swimmers are Max D and Ari Goldman, two guys that have had substantial influence on modern dancefloor tastes, not only through their own masterful DJ sets but also through their productions, through Max’s label Future Times, and through Ari’s presence at the hallowed Earcave record shop in DC.
The guys will be sharing the whole evening with Eamon, and we’ll all be sharing in a very, very good time. Tickets are here. See you there.
A couple Fridays back, Josh Dunn and I DJed the fourth edition of Planetarium, with Gunnar Haslam playing live. We recorded the night, but sadly, the file was corrupted, so we’re reverting to the playlist format again. We hope you find some tunes you love inside. Josh played some amazing stuff that I had to scoop up. Next Planetarium is at the end of January. We’ll be in touch via the Mister email list when the time comes to announce. Make sure you’re signed up if you wanna come. (JC)
