Sunday Best w/ Dam-Funk on June 13th
After a brief respite a few weeks back, Sunday Best has had its last party at the Yard (aka BKYN Yard aka 400 Carroll St). For the rest of the summer (starting yesterday, June 27th, with Kenny Larkin), the party will be at Bushwick’s Brooklyn Fire Proof. They’ll be keeping the previously issued schedule. Tickets are on sale.
More details on the move and evidence of life at the new edition (and Donna Summer at that) are below…
Kenny Larkin – Live at Sunday Best – June 27, 2010
When BKLYN Yard suddenly announced that it was closing its doors, we tried our best to save our home on the canal for the 2010 season. In the end, even though our liquor permitting process was near completion and all the other necessary logistics were sorted, we were prevented from continuing to operate in the space, and we’ve been made powerless in our attempts to stay there.
The owner of the property, the local police precinct, and the community have worked with us over the past couple weeks to keep Sunday Best on the Gowanus, and we thank them greatly for everything they’ve done. We also thank you for continuing to stick with us. It means a lot to us.
Now let’s get to the future! We have secured another outdoor venue for the rest of our summer, and we’re very excited about it. Our new home is the courtyard at Brooklyn Fire Proof, a place where we can continue to dance under the sky, where you can lounge in the outdoor café area, and where you can (finally!) sip on beers and cocktails. As usual, delicious food will be on hand, and the music will be great. All that adds up to nothing but good news.
This weekend Doug, Justin and Eamon will be playing with Kenny Larkin, a legendary Detroit DJ and producer, who’s one of the highlights of our season. Not a bad way to inaugurate our new stomping grounds…
We can’t wait to see you this Sunday and beyond! Here’s to it.
