Sunday Best

We are beyond happy to announce that we are taking a stab at bringing Sunday Best back to the very tree-specked, canal-side lot at 400 Carroll Street where we started this season and spent the past two years. This Sunday, June 13th, we'll begin. We'll be playing in the sunshine alongside LA boogie revivalist Dam-Funk.

We're taking it week by week: This Sunday there'll be no bar, and there can't be any alcohol at all on the property (so please, please, please leave it at home, as the rest of our season depends on it). The good news, though, is that the food vendors are prepping, and the disco ball will be spinning under the trees.

As usual, we'll have a back up in case of inclement weather, so keep an eye on our site if a storm comes up.

We look forward to joining everyone again in the great outdoors!

Your DJs,
Justin Carter, Eamon Harkin & Doug Singer
[Sunday Best]

So after BKLYN Yard's season was abruptly halted after its first weekend, it looks like at least the Sunday Best party will, though dry, survive at the same venue (which is now just called "400 Carroll Street"). Tickets for all shows are on sale. Their schedule for 2010 is re-posted below...

dance party with no booze? what's the point?

NO alcohol? I'm out! Have fun...

FYI-Body n Soul for years had the best party in NYC-and it was alcohol free.
For those who love the music and actually dance, alcohol is is not a pre requisite. Actually it works out perfectly, bc you will not be there.

Beer garden with no alcohol is like picnic with no food.

"dance party with no booze? what's the point?"

So alcohol takes precedence over music? Fucking poseur.

Uh, yeah. You think you're uncovering some sort of new trend?

DJ's + White People - Booze = Some REAL awkward dancing

In other words, get really, really f'ed up before you go in. And make sure the oney/dugout is fully packed. Kinda like you're going to a show at Jones Beach.

"DJ's + White People - Booze = Some REAL awkward dancing"

White people generally are awful dancers, especially men. But the worst dancer I've ever seen was a black guy.

lame. i am sorry but there is no way that party will be fun without booze. it was just marginally fun to have a pop or two out there.

Well, you can get drunk before you go (there are bars like 5 mins away from there). You can bring a flask. You can smoke weed, pop pills, do lines in the bathroom. Whatever man. Whatever you need to enjoy music.

Not at all. I just never thought I'd actually come across someone foolish enough to admit such heinous behavior. Trust me, I've been to enough shows where people are there strictly to get wasted, and actually seem to forget a concert is going on. These dispshits can save a lot of money by just staying home, getting obliterated while listening to music.

so is anyone else suspicious about all that crap about 'the landlord is kicking us out' etc? Basically they didn't have a liquor license, so the landlord, to protect him or herself, pullled the plus? Doesn't that seem logical?!

1:51 - probably, haha

anon 12:16... thankfully i WON'T be there. wouldn't be there anyway even if they did have booze.

When I was a little tike I would get so excited to drive by the Gowanus canal for the dead body's and pollution. You don't need alcohol when you are partying in a superfund site.

With the exception of Michael Mayer, DJ Koze, and Ashley Beetle, the DJ lign-up is a bit weak. I suppose Kenny larkin and maybe John Edwards are ok.

I'm curious how yesterday went. Did they end up moving indoors because of the rain?
