We’re back at the House of Yes before Eamon and Justin head out on tour for the month of February. Joining the boys this evening is Brooklyn’s own FaltyDL. He’s got an album called “Hardcourage” just out on Ninjatune, and he’ll be playing live. We’ll be doing a few special things to celebrate the album release, and you’ll be able to pick up his record at the merch table.
Then there are the things we always to to make it special: analogue party lights, late-night bagel bar, and on-the-house beers for the first hour of the party. Why? Because we like you.
Memorial Day is just too far away.So we’ve decided to bring a little dose of summertime to January by doing a special winter edition of Mister Sunday on MLK weekend. We’re setting up shop at our favorite loft in the whole wide world, 12-turn-13, where there are plenty of windows to let the sunshine in and where there’s plenty of room on the rooftop to catch some crisp air.
Country Boys will be in the house serving up Mexican fare, mulled wine will be on the bar menu, we’ll be hanging lights from the beams to make it feel as much like you’re dancing in the trees as possible, and we’ll have a little area for the kids to have some fun until sundown. (After sundown it’ll likely be time to put them to bed: 12-turn-13′s not as expansive as Gowanus Grove, so most of the space becomes the dancefloor as the evening wears on.)
The party runs from 3pm to 9pm, and it costs $15; or, if you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and get there before 5pm, it’ll only cost you $10. 12-turn-13 is at 172 Classon Ave, between Park and Myrtle Ave. Here’s a map.
Eamon and Justin DJ all night to a room full of folks who wanna get down. Free beer for the first hour and free bagels at the witching hour. $10 before midnight if you RSVP to email@example.com, $15 otherwise.
Justin and I put quite a few mixes out into the world in 2012. We made contributions to Resident Advisor, Boiler Room and Rinse FM, and a live recording from Mister 100 proved particularly popular. But it’s our mix from the beginning of the year for Little White Earbuds which we’re especially proud of. Focusing more towards the house and techno end of the Mister musical spectrum the flow and sequence seemed to really click.
Beyond John and Alice Coltrane, I’d never really explored the world of spiritual jazz, so I dug a little deeper this year. The Spiritual Jazz compilations on Jazzman Records provided a great range of styles, sources and were the perfect way to delve further. They soundtracked quite a few of opening hours at the party. . . . Read on
It’s the end of 2012. It was a great year. Here are some things that made an impact on me. Not all necessarily of them are necessarily from this year, but this was the year that they entered my sphere.
Einstein on the Beach
I’ve had a subscription to BAM’s Next Wave Festival for ten years. Einstein on the Beach, Philip Glass and Robert Wilson’s 1976 opera, was the opener to this year’s festival, and it was by far the best thing I’ve ever seen at BAM and among the best experiences of music and performance that I’ve ever had. . . .
