JD Twitch, one of our DJ heroes, joins Justin Carter behind the turntables for this edition of Mister Sunday. Twitch runs the excellent Optimo Music label, DJed and ran the long running Optimo parties in Glasgow for thirteen years (and still does the occasional Optimo party); and he is one of the world’s finest DJs. He played for us last year, and it was lovely.
**If it is the day of the party, the event listing may read, “Tickets are not available.” Unless otherwise noted on this page, tickets will likely still be available at the door. Just get there early to be sure.**
Mister Sunday happens in a courtyard between two beautiful buildings in Industry City, a complex of old warehouses at the foot of Sunset Park in Brooklyn. There are birch trees, garden lights strung from end to end, plenty of tables and chairs, indoor bathrooms and a pretty big dancefloor.
Country Boys serves tacos and huaraches; Nowadays serves vegan and veggie-friendly food as well as the best daggone burger we’ve had in a long time. The party is all ages, and you can bring your dog. We’ve got sangria, sodas from Brooklyn Soda Works, and a bunch of Brooklyn-brewed beers at the bar.
Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter play records from beginning to end. We never really know what to expect from them.
Our hours are from 3pm to 9pm. It costs $15, but we sell a limited number of $10 advance tickets. The address for the courtyard entrance is 644 2nd Ave, Brooklyn.
That’s all for now! We’re really looking forward to hanging with you in the great outdoors. Until then!
A FEW RULES FOR OUR DANCEFLOOR:
1. Please don’t take photos.
2. Please don’t smoke.
3. Please don’t text or make calls or any of that stuff.
You can do all these things off of the dancefloor, but when you’re inside the speakers, get down.
HOW TO GET TO US
If you want to use Google Maps to get directions, the closest address to our entrance is 644 2nd Ave, Brooklyn. The N, R and D trains stop at 36th Street, two blocks from the party. Both the N and D run express, even on the weekend. It takes less than ten minutes to get here from Atlantic Terminal on both of those trains. The R train runs local and connects with the F and G at 4th Ave and 9th. If you’re riding a bike, the easiest, safest way is to use 5th Avenue. Once you get to 36th Street, just go down the hill, and you’re a three-block coast away.
OTHER IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT SUNDAYS
Kids under 18 go free with as long as they’re accompanied by a grown-up, and dogs are welcome as long as they’re on a leash. We take credit cards at the bar. No outside drinks are allowed, but fear not: we have beer, sangria, water, and lemonade. In order to drink beer and sangria, you’ll need a wristband. You’ll be given a wristband at the door as long as your ID says you’re of age.
The music ends at 9pm, and we close the space at around 9:30pm. Before you leave, please throw all your trash and recycling in the appropriate bins so the neighbors’ front stoops aren’t junked up, and on your way home, keep your voices low so that the folks in the neighborhood can have a little peace and quiet. They’re really nice for having us around, and we want to stay in their good graces so we can keep bringing you Mister Sunday.
Finally, have an awesome time.
