Classic Mister Saturday Night

msn_2016_dec10_aAfter two solid nights featuring guests at the Barn, we’re taking the reins for an evening ourselves. If you’ve joined as at Silent Barn, you know the story. If you haven’t, prepare yourself for cozy quarters, warm sound and good vibes. Tickets are here.

Mister New Year’s Day

msn_2016-nyd_784x1200-fb
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.

That’s all for now. We’ll see ya soon.

Eamon Solo at Mister Sunday In London

Planetarium Playlist

On November 4th, 2016, we did our third edition of Planetarium, the immersive listening experience we started back in June. We forgot to record the evening, so we decided we’d put together this playlist. Not everything was available on youtube, so we made a full tracklisting and included explanations for the things that we couldn’t add. Enjoy! [And sorry about the tracks with ads up front.]

The next Planetarium is on Friday, December 2nd. We just posted tickets. Grab ’em fast. They tend to sell out quickly.

Know It All

Most people don’t know this, but before I ever put a record on a turntable, I was a singer and songwriter. Over the past fifteen or so years, as I’ve gone down the DJing path, my singing and writing have ticked along quietly in the background, a secret to pretty much everyone.

This Friday, though, I’m releasing a song. It’s called “Know It All”. I recorded it with Cosmo D, the cellist from Archie Pelago, and Jason Lindner, the keyboardist on Blackstar, Bowie’s final album. It was mixed by Benjamin Tierney, who also worked his magic on Kamasi Washington’s The Epic.

Stereogum’s posted a nice review of the single.

I really hope you like it.
