Party: Analog Soul and Norm Talley

On Fridays, we party. The sounds may vary, but the vibe is always the same: good.

Nowadays residents Jacky Sommer and DatKat (known collectively as Analog Soul) return to the ’days to take us on another journey into the deep. The twin sisters relocated from the San Francisco Bay Area to New York in the early aughts, launched their weekly Analog Soul show on East Village Radio shortly thereafter and have been staples of the city’s dance underground ever since. Joining them is Detroit’s Norm Talley. Norm’s DJ journey began in the early ’80s, when he was a kid saving money from his paper route to buy records. These days, he’s a veteran selector and producer with an extensive discography that includes releases on Third Ear, Dockside Records, Tsuba and, most recently, Omar S’s FXHE label. He joins forces with Jackie and Kat to cut a deep groove through house, disco, techno, acid and electro.

Who says you can only barbecue in the summer?  We’re moving our weekly hang indoors and serving pork ribs and beef brisket from noon on. There’ll be plenty of space for groups big and small to hang, and Beto Cravioto will provide the soundtrack from 4pm ’til 10pm.

Every Saturday, we invite our favorite selectors to set the mood while you kick back for the evening, or warm up for the night. The tunes go from 4pm ’til 10pm, and it’s totally free.

You may know Beto Cravioto as one half of Kaviar Disco Club, or one half of FBI Warning, or perhaps as a Nowadays family member who sometimes appears behind the turntables and sometimes appears behind the bar. He’s a longtime vinyl lover, so expect him to dust off some heat when he hits the ’days for a six-hour set.

Rave: Beta Librae, Antenes and Akua

When Saturday night hits, we start up the lighting rig, crank the smoke machines and get lost ’til dawn. It’s a proper rave in here.

Nowadays resident Beta Librae is a Kansas-born, Brooklyn-based DJ and producer who creates bewitching, dreamlike house, ambient and downtempo tracks (give a listen to her debut album, Sanguine Bond, for a taste). Joining her at the controls is electronic musician, DJ and modular synth builder Lori Napoleon, aka Antenes. Over the past few years, Lori has released club sluggers and ambient soundscapes on L.I.E.S., Silent Season and The Bunker New York; built a large-scale installation for Moogfest out of vintage telephone switchboards; and entranced NYC’s underground with lilting, syncopated techno and electro. Akua is co-founder of the School of Hard Trax NYC and a skilled selector with a love of heady club tracks. Whether you like your tunes hypnotic, guttural or anywhere in between, these three have got you covered.

Mister Sunday Outdoor Season Closer with Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin

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.

The last Mister Sunday of the outdoor season is always a special one. Justin and Eamon pull out all the stops, and between the changing leaves, the nip of fall in the air and the steam coming off the mulled wine, it’s pretty magical. Come have one last dance under the open sky with us before we take things indoors for the year.

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…

3pm – 9pm (Nowadays stays open until midnight) / all ages / $15 before 5pm with RSVP / $10, $15 and $20 advance tickets / $20 at the door

Think Olio Immersive Listening: Twin Peaks and Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima

Think Olio is back for another listening session, and this time they’re bringing two of our favorite professors to analyze the eighth episode of the Twin Peaks revival (that’s the nuclear bomb episode). Here’s what they have to say about it:

​Whitney George loves this song; Geoff Klock loves this show. Join them for a discussion of one the most audacious hours of television ever, in which David Lynch burns with the heat of a nova and nearly destroys 2001: A Space Odyssey in the process. A big part of how it works is Krzysztof Penderecki’s Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima. Even if you haven’t seen the new Twin Peaks, or any Twin Peaks in years, or ever, or any David Lynch at all, George and Klock will bring everything you need. Show up while we wrestle with one of the most powerful works of art ever made and we will goddamn figure it out. Or figure something out. Sheesh. We got a lot of work to do you guys. We’re probably gonna need your help.

**the class is ticketed, but don’t worry, if you’re just coming to hang out, have dinner or have a drink, Nowadays is free as usual

Shakey’s Record Fair

DJ Shakey’s long-standing record fair — which, in consideration of the DJs out there, always goes down on a weeknight — comes to Nowadays. In addition to gathering some of the city’s best vinyl sellers, the fair hosts record labels, music magazines and gear companies, plus Shakey books a killer lineup of selectors to play throughout the night. It’s a lot of fun, it’s free and, like much of what we do here, it’s open for all ages.

7pm – 1am / free

Remedi Food Lunar Dinner Club

Nowadays family member Mantra Marie returns to host another feast in our dining room (which also doubles as our dance floor). As the founder of Remedi Food, Mantra is dedicated to making healthy, ethically-sourced food available to everyone. When the moon is full, she invites folks to sit down together and enjoy a meal, a talk on ethical consumption and a guided meditation. She sources her ingredients from local farms the day of, so we can’t say what she’ll serve, but we can say it’ll be delicious.

Party: Antal All Night

Every Friday, we throw a party. The tunes may vary, but the sound is always warm and the vibe is always good.

Antal is co-founder of the hallowed record label and shop Rush Hour, so it follows that he has a longstanding passion for discovering incredible records — and the collection to prove it. He’s also got a propensity for playing sets that cover a lot of ground, both stylistically and geographically, and he’s been doing it long enough (nearly two and a half decades) to make a sharp left turn feel like a lane change. House, afrobeat, Japanese disco, acid, soca, techno, kwaito — you’re likely to hear it all in this all-night set.

For the truly dedicated, we’ve got, well, both. Joining Michael and JT for the night is techno and EBM master Ne/Re/A. Here’s what they have to say about it:

We’re ecstatic to welcome back FNV alumni Ne/Re/A, our choice to play our inaugural warehouse party, back to the mix. If you’re not familiar with Ne/Re/A we don’t know what rock you’ve been hiding under, but we are excited for you to hear her in action. Expect relentlessly dark and driving beats with an industrial edge that leave you whimpering and begging for more. Prepare yourself! It’s gonna get spooky.

Halloween Night: DJ Python, DJ Healthy, James K and Hank Jackson

It’s Halloween, and whether you like to go all out on a costume or simply take advantage of another opportunity to boo-gie (sorry) to frighteningly good tunes (we can’t help it), we’re here for ya. Nowadays resident DJ Python is inviting a supercrew of selectors — DJ Healthy, James K and Hank Jackson — to join him behind the decks. Dress up if you want; don’t if you don’t. Either way it’s going to be wicked.

Party: Midland All Night

At the end of every week, we throw a party. The tunes are sweet and the sound is warm. Happy Friday.

Midland is a London DJ and producer with a catalogue that spans garage-tinged house, juiced-up disco and melodic techno. He’s similarly agile as a DJ, which, to put it mildly, has earned him some props: his Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 was named mix of the year in 2016, and his Fabriclive 94 mix showed up in best-of-2017 lists from Mixmag, Pitchfork and FACT. We’ve got him on from start to finish. Come early and go along for the ride.

Every Saturday night, we flip on the strobes, dial up the smoke machines and surrender the sound system to selectors we can count on to keep us dancing ’til Sunday.

Daniel Martin-McCormick previously worked under the name Ital, but for the past couple years he’s focused on crafting shadowy techno and hazy, dreamlike soundscapes as Relaxer. Joining him at the decks is Jane Fitz. Jane is longtime staple of London’s underground and a regular on RinseFM. She has a taste for hypnotic grooves and far out textures (think early UK acid, deep house and psychedelic techno) and a fluid, entrancing style. Try not to be too surprised when the sun comes up.

Think Olio: A World Beyond PC

Think Olio returns to sharpen our minds with another educational evening. Marissa Gutierrez-Vicario is the executive director of the non-profit Art and Resistance Through Education (ARTE), as well as an adjunct lecturer at the City College of New York. In this class, she looks at how political correctness can hold us back from addressing key social issues. Here’s what she has to say about it:

In the recent political climate, the use (or misuse) of language has been an issue at the forefront of public discourse and within social movements. Most specifically, this Olio will explore the following: How does a fear of language hold us back from addressing the critical social justice issues that surround us? How does the cultivation of a PC culture actually harm movements for social change?

Together, we will explore language and how it can simultaneously be used to perpetuate systems of oppression and on the other hand, create more welcoming spaces for communities. We will collectively discuss the perils of PC language that separates and hinders us from making social change, alongside “liberatory language,” language that uplifts, unites, and mobilizes social change.

Using examples from the immigrant rights and end mass incarceration movements, we will also explore how imagination, and the arts has been used to build “liberatory language” and how a world beyond PC might not only be possible, but necessary.

Think Olio: Immersive Learning – Brian Eno’s Another Green World

Composer and conductor Whitney George commandeers the hi-fi once again for another active listening session. This time she’ll dig into Brian Eno’s arrestingly beautiful third album, Another Green World. Here’s what she has to say about it:

Brian Eno’s album Another Green World remains one of his central masterpieces, despite his ubiquitous presence in the music scene starting in the 1970s. Eno went into the studio to record Another Green World much like a visual artist enamored of the Fluxus movement: this was to be a happening, a recorded happening, and it was to happen without a plan. Eno was an artist who was well aware that the medium of recording was just as much of an instrument as anything making sound in the studio. The central idea was to sell the record as a product of the process, rather than a way of preserving a performance. This very thought was pivotal in shaping the art and music of his collaborators such as David Bowie, The Talking Heads, and Coldplay.

Constraints breed creativity, and Eno came well equipped with materials to think outside of the box and redirect his thinking to completely new territories and sonic landscapes. Join us for an immersive listening session where we’ll talk about the pre-compositional design, form and function, and the process that created the product Another Green World and discuss Brian Eno’s omnipresence in so much of the recorded medium from the 1970s on.

Rave: Aurora Halal and Batu

Every Saturday, we fire up the strobe lights, turn the smoke machines to eleven and dance ’til dawn — and then some. It’s a proper rave in here.

Aurora Halal is the person behind the Sustain-Release gathering and the Mutual Dreaming party, as well as a fantastic DJ and producer with a taste for dark, psychedelic techno. It’s a taste she’s shared around the globe — and here with us at the ’days nearly every month since we’ve opened our doors. For this appearance, she’s joined by Bristol DJ and producer Batu. Batu helms the Timedance label, and as such sits at the bleeding edge of the UK’s techno renaissance. His focus is on dubby, fractured tunes that are so entrancing, the experience feels less like a club night and more like a rite of passage. Paired with Aurora’s trippy, enveloping textures, it ought to be quite a ride.

Think Olio: How Markets Fail and Why it Matters

Lev Moscow is an NYC teacher who’s taught classes in international political economy for over a decade, and now he’s coming to Nowadays to break down market failures for us. Here’s what he has to say about it:

Our market economy produces trillions of dollars in wealth and provides us with ever more stuff. We are richer than any humans that have come before, and by many measures, life has never been better. In other words, the market system generally works. But periodically markets fail, and when they do the results can be catastrophic. In this Olio we will explore how market failure occurs and why market failure seems to be happening more frequently.

There are a number of ways markets fail, from externalities to asymmetric information, and the idea of this Olio is to delve into the market failures happening in real life. From crypto currencies, to online dating sites to tourists paying too much for a bottle of water, we’ll explore market failures and how they directly affect us.

Party: Young Marco All Night

Every Friday night, we throw a party. The tunes are sweet, and vibe is always good.

Marco Sterk, aka Young Marco, is an Amsterdam-based DJ and producer known for cutting a path through dance music’s hinterland. He has a love of unconventional, unknown jams and casts a wide net to find them, weaving together afrobeat, Middle Eastern disco, proto-house, techno and more in his sets. His productions, released on Rush Hour, ESP Institute and Dekmantel, likewise shun the beaten path and often opt for warm, beguiling melodies over more conventional floor-filling tactics. This is not to say he won’t make you dance; he will. He’ll just do it in a way you’d never expect.
