Backyard Listening with DJ Sanna, Adrian Rew and Alston

Every Friday and Saturday night, we invite our favorite selectors down to the Nowadays back yard to set the vibe while you play ping pong, have a drink, grab a bite, lie in the grass or all of the above.

DJ Sanna is a Baghdad-born DJ now based in NYC. Her diverse background has resulted in an eclectic taste in music, which you can hear when she takes to the online airwaves on the Lot Radio every second Tuesday of the month from 8–10pm. If Adrian Rew isn’t busy stocking the rock, synthesizer and out music at A-1 Records, organizing events for Blank Forms, patiently preparing a solo performance, running Ergot Records, or stressing out about all the books he hasn’t read, he’s likely in his bedroom searching for the sweet spot of amplitude between lovely sonority and pissing off his upstairs neighbor. With a penchant for the psychedelic and emotional, Adrian’s DJ sets reveal a jack of all trades, and a master of some. Alston is a lover of records (and cars) who hails from Hawaii. Catch him on his regular Lot Radio show, Couple Two T’ree. All three come together to set the vibe out back with choice cuts from the across their collections — and the musical spectrum. Whether the back yard is your jumping-off point or your destination, they’ve got you covered.

Outdoor Film Night: Wag the Dog (1997)

Every Wednesday at sundown, we set up the projector in the back yard and put on a movie while you kick it with a bite and brew. The films are chosen by MoMA’s former senior curator of film, Laurence Kardish. For forty-four years, Laurence organized over a thousand exhibitions covering the whole history and culture of cinema, and now he’s queued up a series for us.

One of the most prescient political satires made in America about a president who deflects his indiscretions by having Hollywood, in the guise of Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman and Anne Heche, invent a fake war. It was released months before Monica Lewinsky and decades before Stormy Daniels.

Directed by Barry Levinson. 97 mins.

RA 24/7

We’ve teamed up with Resident Advisor to present the New York installment of their global 24/7 event series. It’s a packed schedule of events — listening sessions, an all-night party, late-night film screenings, radio broadcasts and more — all going down over the course of just twenty-four hours. Check out what RA has to say:

2018 is the first full year since NYC repealed its prohibition-era Cabaret Law, which had long been an albatross hanging around the neck of the city’s nightlife communities. There is now a feeling of hopefulness and optimism as the city moves into an era where dancing is no longer regulated. To celebrate, we’re teaming up with Nowadays and bringing together a host of artists to highlight the vibrant communities that make New York the amazing place for nightlife it is today – while also giving some nods to the city’s vaunted past. Here’s how it’s all going down:

PLANETARIUM

When we start at 8pm, we’ll be presenting a special edition of Planetarium, Nowadays’ deep listening session. We’ve invited Maria Chavez and Josh Dunn, two of New York’s headiest selectors, to play sets interspersed with live piano performances from ambient/minimalist composer Bing & Ruth.

In order to make this portion of the night as special as it can be, we’re only selling a handful of tickets so that you can stretch out, lie on the floor and get totally lost in music. Bring pillows, blankets and sleeping bags to get totally stuck in. (Don’t worry–you can put them in coat check when the next portion of the evening begins.)

CLUB NIGHT

At 12am, we’ll pick up the blankets and launch into the proper club night, with three generations of New York DJs taking the reins–Stud1nt, Adam X and Fred P–for a trip to the deepest recesses of the dance floor until late morning.

OUTDOORS AT NIGHT

Meanwhile, Nowadays’ garden will host Elbin Reyes, Shawn Dub and DJ Voices, some of New York’s finest selectors, playing back yard barbecue jams, followed by a late-night silent film screening with a DJed soundtrack from Unscented DJ. The outdoors will be free and open to the public for this portion of the evening.

SUNRISE AMBIENT

At 5am outdoors, we’ll host an ambient sunrise session with live sets from Umfang and Beta Librae and DJ sets from Fergus Clark and Love Letters.

DAYTIME SESSION WITH THE LOT RADIO

Starting at 10am outdoors, we’ll have a session with one of the most essential staples of today’s New York dance music community, The Lot Radio, featuring some of their all-start hosts – Llyodski, Darker Than Wax and Christine Renee. Whether it turns into a hang or a full on dance party, we’re ready, and whether or not you can make it to the event, you’ll be able to tune in to this portion of 24/7 online.

EXCHANGE

At 11am indoors, we’ll begin a special RA Exchange series of conversations with some of the key figures from the past fifty years of New York’s storied nightlife history.

MISTER SUNDAY

Come 3PM, we’ll do what Nowadays does every Sunday – have an afternoon dance in the sunshine at Mister Sunday, the party helmed by Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter.

HOW TICKETS WORK

Each ticket tier is timed. You’ll have access to every part of the event from the time listed on your ticket tier until the end of the event.

For example, if you purchase a Planetarium ticket, you can come in and out of Nowadays for the entirety of the event, from 8pm on Saturday until the end of Mister Sunday – so essentially you’re buying a ticket to the special Planetarium session plus the club night, the sunrise session, etc. If you purchase a Club Night ticket, you’ll have access from midnight Saturday until the end of Mister Sunday. If you purchase a Conversation ticket, you’ll have access to Nowadays from 11am Sunday until the end of Mister Sunday, and so on…

Re-entry is allowed throughout the twenty-four hours. Just make sure you don’t wash your stamp off if you head home for a rest in the middle.ach ticket tier allows you access the entire event from that point onwards. Re-entry will be permitted.

We’ll see ya out there.

starting at 8pm  / $20 advance tickets

Mister Sunday: RA 24/7

Mister Sunday is a party for you, whether you’re a septuagenarian, a house head, a skater, a toddler, a bear, a witch, a New York lifer, an out-of-towner, a twenty-three-year-old club kid or a medium-cute dog. As long as you’re nice, you like to be outside during the summer and you’re willing to put your phone down and dance, you’re welcome here.

This edition is part of the RA 24/7 session Nowadays is doing with Resident Advisor. Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter will be playing all day, and you can purchase tickets through the link below or through the RA 24/7 event listing — both will get you into the party in exactly the same way. As usual, tickets are $20 in advance or at the door, but we have a handful of $10 and $15 early birds available online, or you can RSVP to get in for $15 before 5pm. Keep in mind that RSVPs don’t guarantee entry, and sometimes parties do sell out, so if you want to be sure you’ll get in, it’s a good idea to get a ticket in advance.

The party’s rain or shine, all ages are welcome and so are dogs on a leash. See ya soon…

Think Olio: A Deep Listening of David Bowie’s Low with Composer, Conductor and Professor Whitney George

Composer and conductor Whitney George takes command of our hi-fi for another in-depth listening session. This time, she’ll dig into the incredible David Bowie– and Brian Eno–composed b-side of Low. Here’s what she has to say about it:

I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.
– David Bowie

David Bowie (1947–2016), singer, actor, fashion icon and beyond, crossed multiple disciplines in his artistic endeavors, and his album Low* (1977) marks a significant departure in his direction of his truly unique voice. Listed as one of Rolling Stone‘s best 100 albums of all time, Bowie’s Low deserves special attention: the first in the Berlin trilogy, it reveals a change in Bowie’s musical style, and has since influenced a number of artists and musical sub-genres with its experimental approach and new techniques. Low‘s sound starts to venture into the musically avant-garde for a popular music album, taking on a much more adventurous attitude with the inclusion of electronic (synthesized) sounds, and even includes wholly instrumental numbers (a rarity for any genre of popular music). Bowie, struggling with a cocaine addiction in the mid/late 70s, moved away from California in an attempt to save himself. The lyric content in the album points to a world of pain and addiction surrounding Bowie, our narrator, at the time the album was recorded. Interestingly, Low is a more collaborative album, with Brian Eno donating a significant amount of the compositional material (especially for side two) of the album. Join us as we dissect Low into points of deeper listening (rhythm, texture, harmony, melody, instrumentation, form, etc.), discuss the creation of the album, and how Bowie’s life plays into the musical material. We’ll listen and experience the album in-full as a group — discussing what to listen to and focus on beforehand, and an analysis after the listening. For a more fulfilling experience, check out the recommended reading and listening below.

*RCA rejected Bowie’s Low. And Bowie kept that rejection letter on his wall…obviously the executives at RCA had no idea what they were listening to…

Recommended listening: Low, David Bowie
Recommended reading: Low by David Bowie, 33 1/3 Album Series

Every Wednesday at sundown, we set up the projector in the back yard and put on a movie while you kick it with a bite and brew. The films are chosen by MoMA’s former senior curator of film, Laurence Kardish. For forty-four years, Laurence organized over a thousand exhibitions covering the whole history and culture of cinema, and now he’s queuing up a bunch of flicks for us.

Quite simply, Talladega Nights is one of the funniest films in existence about a sports competition (NASCAR) and the cultural differences between uncouth American males (Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly) and an oh-so refined Frenchman (Sacha Baron Cohen).

Directed by Adam McKay. 108 mins.

The Bunker Limited with Wata Igarashi

With fifteen years worth of warehouse parties, loft shindigs and club nights under its belt, it’s safe to say The Bunker is an NYC institution. We’re thrilled to have the Bunker folks back at the ’days for another edition of their intimate Bunker LTD series. Here’s what they have to say about it:

Wata Igarashi has quickly emerged as one of Japan’s leading DJs and producers. He has been exploring the deeper side of techno through well-received EPs on Midgar, The Bunker NY, and DJ Nobu’s Bitta label, as well as standout tracks on compilations on Semantica and Time to Express. By day, Igarashi works as a sound producer and the skills he has developed through his work are reflected in his productions, which are distinguished by their subtle and carefully polished feel. Igarashi pursues a similar sound in his DJ sets, developing a distinctive take on the more psychedelic brand of techno Japan has become known for.

Wata has appeared at The Bunker at Contact and Air in Tokyo, Bassiani in Tbilisi, and last year at Good Room in Brooklyn. This is his first extended set in NYC and 8 hours will be his longest set to date. He’s been an artist we had in mind to play at The Bunker Limited and we can’t wait to hear him stretch out and take us on a proper journey!

For those not familiar with The Bunker Limited: it’s an intimate event that began in the Public Assembly loft in 2011, and is meant for smaller rooms so tickets are strictly limited, there is no photography allowed, no guestlist, and the sets are not recorded. The idea is to create a special and unique experience just for the heads who show up.

10p – 6a / bar until 4a, dance until it’s done / $15, $20 and $25 advance tickets / facebook event

As long as you’re nice, you like to be outside during the summer and you’re willing to put your phone down and dance, you’re welcome here.

For this edition, Justin is joined by producer, DJ and Freakout Cult co-founder Jayda G. Jayda brings an ebullient energy to any party she plays, and we can’t wait to hear what she does under an open sky with, if we may say so, one of the best dance crowds around.

Tickets will run you $20 in advance or at the door, but we always have a handful of $10 and $15 early birds, and you can RSVP to get in for $15 before 5pm. Keep in mind that RSVPs don’t guarantee entry, and sometimes parties do sell out, so if you want to be sure you’ll get in beyond a shadow of a doubt, it’s a good idea to get a ticket in advance.

The party’s rain or shine, all ages are welcome and so are dogs on a leash. See ya soon…

If you’ve been in New York a minute, chances are you have Bruce Tantum to thank for many great nights out. For nearly two decades, he edited the Nightlife section of Time Out New York, shepherding the city’s nocturnal dwellers to the best club nights, warehouse parties and basement raves NYC had to offer. He’s also written for basically every other electronic-music magazine and website we can think of (and probably a few we can’t). Far from being just a chronicler of the dance scene, Bruce is a longtime DJ who has serenaded some of the best dance floors both here and abroad. We’re thrilled to have him out back setting the vibe all evening with his favorite tunes.

The Carry Nation and Gideön

Nita Aviance and Will Automagic have been working together as the Carry Nation since 2012. In that time, they’ve set off dance floors in clubs, lofts and warehouses throughout the city — and the world. They’ve released music on stalwart labels like Nervous, Tribal and Classic Music Company, they’re residents of Ladyfag’s Battle Hymn and, during the cooler parts of the year, they present a monthly soiree at Good Room. All of which is to say, they know how to throw a party.

For this one, they’ve enlisted London’s Gideon Berger, aka Gideön. Gideon is a longtime devotee of deep house, northern soul, roots reggae, acid house, disco, soul, vintage gospel and rare groove. He also creates large-scale music and art installations as one-half of the creative duo Block9. Recently, Block9 collaborated with Banksy to create an artist retreat on the Palestinian side of the West Bank barrier. The Walled Off Hotel hosted Brian Eno, The Black Madonna and others, all of whom created songs inspired by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (listen to them here). The project is just one of many that show Gideon’s deep love of music. We can’t wait for him, Will and Nita to share the love with us here at the ’days.

10p – 6a / bar until 4a, dance until it’s done / free before midnight with RSVP / $10 and $15 advance tickets

Mister Sunday: Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter

Mister Sunday is a party for you, whether you’re a septuagenarian, a house head, a skater, a toddler, a bear, a witch, a New York lifer, an out-of-towner, a twenty-three-year-old club kid or a medium-cute dog.

The party’s rain or shine, all ages are welcome and so are dogs on a leash. See ya soon…

Adventures in Flight with Musical Host Douglas Sherman

Douglas Sherman is one of our favorite regulars here at the ‘days. An integral part of New York’s underground dance history as a member of the Loft and Joy families, he thinks about the entire experience of a party, from the sound to the music to the decor. He always has a lineup of extraordinary records, a mix of new music and underground classics that he plays from the heart rather from a prescribed playlist. He also brings in a team before each party to augment our room with an amazing array of balloons, and beyond that, he pays such close attention to the little details around sound that he can bring the nuances out in our system that almost no one else can. Come experience a master at work — for free no less!

Backyard Listening with Jose Valerio

Every Friday and Saturday night, we invite our favorite selectors down to the Nowadays back yard to set the vibe while you play ping pong, have a drink, grab a bite, lie in the grass or all of the above.

As a kid growing up in Bushwick, Jose Valerio would sit in his bedroom and listen to the park jams going down across the street at Irving Square Park. Songs like Ralph MacDonald’s “Jam on the Groove” and Funkadelic’s “Get Off Your Ass and Jam” caught his ear and ignited a passion for music that continues to this day. A dedicated DJ and collector, Jose’s stacks have a breadth and depth that can only be acquired through years of digging daily. He hits the back yard to treat us to a set of house, disco, jazz, soul and more (maybe even a park jam classic or two).

They’re joined by Vancouver-based DJ and producer Sophie Sweetland, aka D. Tiffany (aka DJ Zozi, aka Xophie Xweetland). Sophie is an MPC-wielding architect of dreamy house with releases on 1080p, Pacific Rhythm, Coastal Haze and her own Planet Euphorique imprint. Her productions often evoke the sensation of a warm breeze, but don’t be fooled: as a selector she runs the gamut from airy tropical jams to wall-rattling techno and drum ‘n’ bass. Also on deck for the evening is a special Australian guest. The Melbourne-based DJ and producer released her debut EP on Perth’s Good Company Records last year, and she has since released music on Kalahari Oyster Cult, Voyage Recordings and Planet Europhique; contributed a track to Pelvis’ DJ Tools Vol. 2; supplied mixes for Truants and Noise in My Head and performed live at Australia’s Inner Varnika festival.
