The Final Details for NYE

The big night is almost upon us! Here’s a recap of what’s happening at this special expanded edition of Mister Saturday Night..

In one room, residents Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin will be joined for a midnight set by Detroit wunderkind Kyle Hall, riding a very special sound system all night long. Local production duo Bad Decision open proceedings up from 9pm.

In the other room is Martyn, a producer recognized as one of the world’s best known dubstep creators but who also plays diverse sets which find the likes of Prince, J Dilla and Washed Out rubbing shoulders with more futuristic sounds. Rounding out the room with Martyn is DJ Qu, a fantastic local jock and the man behind of one of our favorite labels, Strength Music.

We’re also taking extra special care of the production for this one. Both rooms will be fantastically bedecked by Jessica Grindstaff, a set designer whose work has graced stages from Amsterdam to Australia to our hometown Brooklyn Academy of Music (and our Halloween party back in October).

We’ve also got an open champagne bar all night long AND a special hand printed mix CD created especially for the party by Eamon & Justin (limited to the first 200 folks through the door). There’s going to be plenty of room to dance, relax and chat with friends in both rooms as well as an outdoor patio where you can get a breath of fresh air. There will also be plenty of bathrooms and bar staff to keep things flowing nicely through the night.

Remember that this is a ticket-only affair. Tickets are selling quickly so get yours now over here to avoid disappointment. We will not be selling tickets on the door! Tickets are all sold out.

Ticket-holders will be emailed the address details on the evening of Dec 30th and also right after sales close at noon on the 31st. Rest assured that the venue is at a convenient location, close to train stops accessible in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

And that just about covers it. We’ll see you on New Years Eve.

New Year’s Eve with The Mister: SOLD OUT

This New Year’s Eve, Mister Saturday Night is bringing you the best of both worlds.

We’re keeping our unique loft party intimacy, with plenty of room to dance and high quality music with amazing sound – but we’re expanding things a bit. In one room, residents Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin will be joined for a midnight set by Kyle Hall, a 19-year-old Detroit wunderkind, who’s been trailblazing for a new generation of music makers over the past two years. In the other room is Martyn, a producer who challenges all preconceived notions about his status as one of the world’s best known dubstep creators by playing sets that are far-flung enough to include Prince, J Dilla and Washed Out. Rounding out the room with Martyn is DJ Qu, a fantastic local jock and the man behind of one of our favorite labels, Strength Music; and opening the festivities for Eamon, Justin and Kyle are production duo Bad Decision.

The multi-roomed event space where the party’s going down will be fantastically bedecked by Jessica Grindstaff, a set designer whose work has graced stages from Amsterdam to Australia to our hometown Brooklyn Academy of Music (with the Kronos Quartet, no less).

What else? How about an open champagne bar, not just for the ball drop, but all night? And an outdoor patio where you can get a breath of fresh air or smoke a cigarette? We have both of those.

The catch? In order to keep it intimate (and within the legal capacity of the venue), you have to buy an advance ticket to get in. We won’t announce the address (rest assured, though, that it’s a convenient location, close to train stops accessible in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and it’s not way, way out there), and even if you figure out where it is, we won’t be selling any tickets at the door, because it’s gonna be sold out.

A Special Halloween

It’s Halloween! This year, instead of sitting it out, we decided we’d offer an antidote to the typically messy offerings, a Halloween party our way: great music, proper sound, fellow party-goers you’ll actually want to talk to, and the most special of special places, 12-turn-13 – this time decked out by our friend Jessica Grindstaff. Jessica is a brilliant mind who’s designed sets at BAM for Kronos Quartet and is currently working on a grand project about Arctic explorer Ernest Shackleton. She’s the real deal.

To boot, if you’re one of the first hundred people through the door, you’ll get a limited edition Mister Saturday Night Halloween Mix CD with special packaging by Miss Grindstaff. And if you get there before 11p, beer’s on the house.

You can still grab an advanced ticket over at Resident Advisor, and if you wear a proper costume – not just something you’ve thrown together (show some effort!) – you’ll get in for $15. Otherwise all the details you need can be found just to the right of this post. We’ll see you Saturday!

The Halloween Mix CD

For this weekend’s Halloween party, we’ve made a Mister Saturday Night mix CD with special packaging by Jessica Grindstaff. Jessica’s decorating 12-turn-13 especially for the evening, and the packaging will be themed in line with how she outfits the space. The first hundred or so people through the door will get a copy… and then they’re gone. Tracklisting after the jump.
