Eamon’s taking the helm while Justin takes a break, and Archie Pelago joins for a one hour set at 5pm and then a few back to back numbers later in the day. Come to chill and check out what’s in store for our next vinyl release. Live cello, sax and a bunch of state-of-the-art audio processors will be on the dancefloor. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for reduced admission before 5pm, or grab and advanced ticket this way.
This past Saturday, we had a live band join us for the first time in Mister history. And thanks to the great talents of Brooklyn trio Archie Pelago, it was a smashing success. We got to talking with our new friend, Bika, who gave us her thoughts on the relationship between electronic and acoustic music. Her friend and coworker Matt joined in the conversation, and her Polish friend Nika (who arrived to New York just one week ago) snapped the shot.
MSN: Is this your first time at a Mister party? Matt: It was a couple of months ago… and I came with Bika once, but we couldn’t get in because it was too packed! Bika: This is my first time at a Mister Saturday Night. Last summer I went to a Mister Sunday party outside, at this place with a bridge by the water… MSN: The Gowanus Canal. Bika: Exactly! Yeah, I loved it. It was so nice. MSN: Yeah, it’s beautiful over there. Bika: Well, not exactly beautiful, but… MSN: Well, just don’t swim in the water! Bika: Haha! Exactly. I always wanted to go to the regular party at night but never managed to until now. MSN: Where are you guys from? Matt: From all over, but I live in Bushwick. Bika: I’m originally from Slovenia, but I grew up in Vienna. I live in Soho now. My friend Nika and I lived in Austria for a long time. I also lived in London for a little while, and London has almost the same problem as New York – it has a very weak electronic scene. It has that contradiction of the best DJs or the best “acts” come from London and New York, but in the city itself, it doesn’t have a proper base or scene. Let’s say you’re in Vienna or something, and are sitting around bored, and you hear that a DJ from New York is coming, it seems like a big thing. But when you come here, it’s not a big deal. Like, where is everybody? It seems that there only a very few parties that are appreciated properly. Continue reading “Mr. And Ms. Saturday Night: March 17th”
For this installment of the Mister at the House Of Yes, we’re happy to announce that we’re doing something we’ve been hoping to do for a long time now – incorporate live music into the party.
Justin and Eamon will DJ almost all night long, and all the trappings that make the House of Yes extra special – comfy seats, a full bar, a disco ball, and our big blue sound system on all four corners of the wood dancefloor – will still be in place; but at some point earlier in the night, the guys will be handing the keys over to a trio of very talented and ingenious acoustic and electronic musicians from Brooklyn called Archie Pelago.
On cello and Ableton is Greg Heffernan (Cosmo D); Dan Hirshorn (Hirshi) operates the turntables and trumpet; and Zach Koeber (Kroba) plays sax and assorted effects. Their technical set-up alone has received plaudits from electronic music producers, and the resulting sound they create is just as uniquely impressive. More than ready for the dancefloor? Mary Anne Hobbs thinks so, and so do we.
Come before eleven for some beers on the house, and RSVP to email@example.com for reduced entry at the door before midnight.
We’re looking forward to trying something new with you.

*Although we absolutely love to play host to our underage friends, the operators of the space make the rules. When we can, we do it all-ages, but for House of Yes, we’ve gotta keep it twenty-one and over.
