This week we’ve got more bathrooms, a disco ball that rotates, more music from Eamon and me, and a live set from Space Dimension Controller. Advance tickets are here. It’s still free for the young folk (under 18 with a grown-up), you can still bring your dog on a leash, and Mile End, Country Boys and Botanica are still in the house.
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.
Eamon and I have a biiiiiig order of records on the way (hopefully arriving in time for New Year’s Eve). The new Wolf Music EP, The Koze remixes of Caribou, and a great one from FCL are all in there; but the one we’re most excited about it the above Space Dimension Controller gem. Chances are you’ll hear it twice in a night. If you want to hear a couple more things, look beyond the jump. Continue reading “On The Way”
