backyard listening with Kelefa Sanneh and Andrew Kuo

Every Friday and Saturday night at Nowadays, we invite our favorite vinyl selectors down to pull out their dream backyard barbecue set to make the vibe right while you have a drink, grab a bite, play ping pong, lie in the grass or all of the above.

In past lives, Kelefa Sanneh was a record store clerk, a college radio DJ and a music critic for the New York Times. These days, he is a staff writer at the New Yorker. Andrew Kuo is a Queens-born artist known for his colorful, geometric, idiosyncratic charts that are often arise from his obsession with music. They do not often do this, but tonight they’re bringing out their record collections to share with our big back yard. We couldn’t be more thrilled.
