We recorded a lot of mixes of our guests playing at Sunday Best over the years. There’s also a few from Eamon and Justin and one in particular of them playing back-to-back at the last Sunday Best party ever.
Here they all are. A real treasure trove. We hope they whet your appetite for Mister Sunday kicking off on May 29th. Don’t download them all at once!
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.
Last week, Justin called Kyle Hall in advance of New Year’s Eve. They talked Detroit, getting older, cassette tapes, and making new music. The conversation begins (abruptly, due to a snafu with Justin’s recorder) with Kyle explaining a new project he’s working Ben Christianson, a gent from a band called Lord Scrummage. Below is the full chat.

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.
It’s Thanksgiving week, and we’re taking it easy. I’m out in San Fran with my Mom, and Eamon’s headed to Ireland to visit his folks (and play a party in his hometown of Derry). If you’re itching for something to do in the city this week, here are a couple picks, probably what we’d be doing if we were around. We hope you have a great Thanksgiving, and we’ll see you for roller skating next Friday! Continue reading “Other Nights of the Week: Getting Inflated for Thanksgiving”
