This weekend is our July 4th Weekend special. Eamon Harkin will be taking the reins of the party on his own for six hours. The parties where the guys get to play solo are special ones that they spend days preparing for in the studio, pulling records that don’t normally get aired at the party. Here’s four hours from Eamon a couple summers ago to get you in the mood.
Tickets are here, and you can RSVP to get in for $15 before 5pm.
Since January of 2009, we’ve loaded our sound system into and out of over twenty-five back yards and lofts, acquired way too many records, spent nearly two thousand hours in the DJ booth, and – most importantly – found a family of people who love music as much as us.
While we’ve never been ones for anniversaries or birthdays, throwing our two-hundred-and-fiftieth party at the venue we’ve been building from the ground up feels like something worth celebrating. So today we’re bringing in our friend Jeff Ralston to decorate Nowadays for the occasion; we’re packing record bags full of Mister Sunday and Saturday Night classics; and we’re lining up surprises. (We do a mean surprise.)
As a big thank you for making the party what it’s become, it’ll be free before 5pm if you get in on the RSVPs while we’ve still got ’em. (The link is over on the right, above the flyers). We’ve allotted a big chunk of those free RSVP spots, but whenever they run out, we’ll also have tickets here, too.
The party’s all ages, kid-friendly, dog-friendly, cat-friendly, bear-friendly, skater-friendly, queer-friendly, raver-friendly, burner-friendly, local-friendly, cool-kid-friendly, art-student-friendly, them-friendly, and grandma-friendly as usual.
In other words, you’re welcome here. Whether it’s your first time or your 250th, we can’t wait to celebrate with you.
President Drumpf’s decision to pull America out of the Paris Climate Agreement yesterday has had us sad and angry for the last twenty-four hours. It’s beyond reason.
Climate change shouldn’t be a political issue. It’s real; it affects us all; and if we don’t address it, all of the other things we work for – equality, justice, peace – are moot. None of those things can exist without a habitable earth.
In protest of Drumpf’s withdrawal, we’re donating 10% of the profits from this Sunday’s party to Earthjustice, a legal non-profit that holds those who break environmental laws accountable for their actions. We’ll also have a place for donations at the door if you’d like to give beyond the cover charge, and of course you can give to them online.
Whether you can make it this Sunday or not, we hope you’ll also consider taking action in your own way – and we hope to see you soon.
Once a month in the non-outdoor season, we bring the big, warm sound system to a now secret but very familiar space for an intimate daytime jam. Sunlight streams through the windows, we string up the garden lights, and we dance it all out. The party’s all ages.
The next edition is on April 23rd. Advance tickets are a good idea, though we will have some tickets at the door.
If you’re in a financial tough spot and would like to join us, please email email@example.com. It’s more important than ever to be together and dancing, and we don’t want you to miss out because of financial constraints. We’ll do our best to accommodate you. (Just email us at least twenty-four hours before the party starts, as we stop checking the email when we are getting set up.)
Because the venue is now unlisted, we’ll send the address to all ticket holders on the day of the party. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org on the day of the party to find out the address info if you don’t have a ticket.
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.
