Mister Halloween Night

Nighttime, outdoors, warm drinks, cold drinks, Nitemind, fire pits, Eamon Harkin, Justin Carter, costumes (no slacking), dope jams. It’s Mister Halloween Night.

Sweat It Out

We’ve been throwing Mister Saturday Night for almost ten years — an eon in New York nightlife. Over that decade, MSN has become a hub for a dedicated family of dancers, who bring an energy to the party that make it feel more like a family gathering than a night out.

Tonight we return to Nowadays on the heels of a tour in Australia. Whenever we go abroad, it means two things — we’re dialed in from working the road for a couple weeks, we’ve got lots of new goodies in our record bags. We’re excited to share them with you.

In addition to the tunes, there’s also a sauna in the back yard at Nowadays from midnight on Saturday. For an extra $15, you can schvitz pre-, post- or mid-party. You will almost surely see JC in there at some point.

Whether you’re sweating it out on the dance floor or in the back yard, we hope to see you this weekend. Until then, be good!

Indoors at Nowadays

The time is finally here.

After years and years of wading through the maze of New York real estate, protracted build-outs, and seemingly endless permitting hurdles, it’s happening. We are opening Indoors at Nowadays this Friday for our first two parties and our first Planetarium. Then, next Thursday, we’ll open our doors permanently for eating, drinking, learning, dancing, listening and hanging out, seven days a week.

We’ve posted listings and tickets to all our events here. In short, we’ll be doing parties every ThursdayFriday and Saturday. Thursdays will be free. We’re also making Planetarium – our six-hour-long listening session where you can bring pillows, blankets and sleeping bags to cozy up on the floor and get lost in music – a weekly Sunday happening.

To start it all off, Bearcat, Precolumbian and Night Doll play the opening party on Friday. We’ll do our very first Mister Saturday Night Indoors at Nowadays on Saturday; and on Sunday we’ll do our first Planetarium, with special guest Huerco S performing live, and our new resident DJ Josh Dunn.

You can get a sneak preview of what the indoors looks like here. To hear that custom sound, you’ll have to come in person. (It’s so good!!!)

And that’s it! Thank you so much for your support and for making the Mister family what it is. We’re super stoked to share it all with you and to build our community alongside you.

London and Oslo

Eamon and Justin are headed to London and Oslo this weekend. On Friday night, they’re playing all night at Phonox in Brixton, and on Saturday night, they’re on at Dattera Til Hagen. Tickets and info for both are here. If you know folks in either town, let ’em know. And if you’re nearby, go say hey!

Repealing The Cabaret Law

It’s a really important day for arts and culture in New York City. We can all do something to make an impact.

The NYC Cabaret Law – a law that makes dancing illegal at all but about 100 venues in New York – is the subject of a City Council public hearing today. 16 Council Members have signed on to the repeal of the law; 10 more are needed for cabaret to be DONE.

Every New York City voter can do something now to see it go away.

Please take a moment to call your NYC Council Member. You can find your Council Person’s name and number by entering your address here.

Once you’ve found your Council Member’s name, look at the list below to find their legislative office number, and call them. Don’t wait until later. Do it now while it’s on the top of your head. It’ll take you less than five minutes!

Council Members in bold have signed on. All the others are a priority on the call list. If a council member hears from even a handful of constituents, they take note, so this action is truly meaningful.

When you get someone on the phone, ask them to vote in favor of the Let NYC Dance Bill #1652. There’s a nice script (and a bevy of information) on the Let NYC Dance site if you need some guidance. If no one picks up the phone, leave a message.

Without further ado, here’s that list of Council Members:
