Planetarium

Leaves Fall in the Planetarium

We’re back for another edition of Planetarium, our immersive experience dedicated to the music we love that’s not for the dancefloor.

We’ve once again reserved an amazing private loft space with a beautiful hi-fi system, and on it, records and live music will be played to get lost in.

There are couches and chairs, and you can bring blankets, sleeping bags, pillows or anything else you’d like to make yourself comfortable. We only do a handful of reservations so that there’s plenty of room to spread out.

This session goes from 7pm to midnight on Friday, February 24th. This date is special, as it’s the release date for Justin Carter’s album The Leaves Fall. For the occasion, Justin will DJ alongside Eamon Harkin and perform live. Accompanying Justin live and playing solo lives sets are cellist Marika Hughes and keyboardist Jason Lindner. Marika has recorded with Yo Yo Ma, Tin Hat Trio and Mr. Bungle, to name a few. Jason is the longtime leader of The Jason Lindner Big Band as well as the integral keyboardist on all of David Bowie’s final album, Blackstar.

You can bring your own drinks (there’s no bar) and food, and we’ll have all the creature comforts that you might otherwise need inside so you never have to leave the bubble we’re creating.

Because we’re doing this at someone’s home, we’ll only send the location info to people who reserve a ticket in advance. So you know how to plan, we can tell you it’s not too far from Nowadays, less than five minutes from the Halsey L.

We’re looking forward to getting lost in music with you. Tickets are here.

Planetarium with Josh Dunn, Gunnar Haslam and Justin Carter: A Playlist

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)

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.]

Planetarium

planetarium_threeSince we started Mister Saturday Night, we’ve been trying to create the best environment to connect people to each other through music. That energy has all been focused on the dancefloor.

Recently, though, we’ve been thinking about all the music we love that’s not for dancing, and we’ve been working on a way to experience that music that is as immersive and communal as being with others on a dancefloor. In about two-and-a-half weeks we’re starting something that aims to do that. It’s called Planetarium.

For the first Planetarium, we’ve reserved an amazing private loft space with a beautiful hi-fi system on which we’ll be playing music to get lost in. There will be couches and chairs, and you can bring blankets, sleeping bags, pillows or anything else you’d like to make yourself comfortable. We’ll only do a handful of reservations so that there’s plenty of room to spread out.

The session will go from 7pm to midnight on Friday, June 24th. You can bring your own drinks (there’s no bar), and there will be a space reserved for smoking inside so you never have to leave the bubble we’re creating.

Because we’re doing this at someone’s home, we’ll only send the location info to people who reserve a ticket in advance. So you know how to plan, we can tell you it’s not too far from Nowadays, less than five minutes from the Halsey L.

Tickets are here. Because we’re trying to leave a lot of space to stretch out, there aren’t a ton of them. It’s a good idea to reserve early.

We really can’t wait to share some music with you in this new way.
