The fine fellas from Horse Meat Disco take on the gents from Mister Saturday Night for a day of disco down at the Grove.
We’ve been keeping this one under our hats for a while, but the time has come to spill the beans. In just over a month, on Memorial Day Weekend, we’re introducing Mister Sunday, the outdoor, Sunday afternoon spinoff of Mister Saturday Night. Clever name, we know.
If you ever came to Sunday Best at BKLYN Yard, you’ll know the place: it’s the same canal-side, tree-spotted plot of land at 400 Carroll Street between Bond and Nevins in Brooklyn, now rechristened Gowanus Grove.
If you never made it down, let us count the ways you’re going to love it. First, kids and dogs – you can bring them. We love them, and we don’t get to see enough of them on Saturday nights. Second, superb food – we’re teaming up with Brooklyn Flea to install a small but ace team of food vendors. Right now, we’ve confirmed Mile End, who will be serving a bunch of stuff you can’t get at the storefront in Boerum Hill, and we’re soon to confirm at least one more. Third, our friends from Botanica, the best little bar in the five boroughs, are taking care of the booze.
And last, but certainly not least, is the music. The Mister Saturday Night residents, Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin, the gents that pull the strings to bring it all together, will be playing records each and every Sunday through the summer on the big, blue soundsystem. There’ll be guests alongside them occasionally as well. Moodymann, Todd Terje, Horse Meat Disco, Optimo and Space Dimension Controller will all take their turns, and on opening day, Four Tet will drop by.
And that’s all there is to say about that. We’ll see you outside.
The report from Horse Meat Disco is that we drank too much whiskey, played disco and gospel house, and people took their clothes off. Most of the nudity was courtesy of a gent called Sleazy Michael. (That is a very NSFW link, by the way.) We were told that he wasn’t the original naked guy of the party, but we were happy all the same. Justin also got flashed by one of two women in the club, and the other nice young lady didn’t need to bother flashing, because her top was off pretty much from the moment she hit the dancefloor. Tasteful pictures and videos from the night are on the way. For now, we’re headed to the British Museum to try to pull our minds out of the gutter.
We’re off to London this week, and we couldn’t be more excited! First up the boys at Horse Meat Disco have asked to come play their legendary Sunday Night party at the The Eagle in Vauxhall on September 12th. And then on Friday the 17th we’re playing a nice 3 hour set at the intimate but notoriously raucous Horse and Groom in Shoreditch. If you’re in London we hope to see you out!
