Jeff Mills live @ Sullivan Room - June 6, 2009 (Lucas Cometto)
I had a great Week In Dance toward the end, but am still trying to forget about the beginning of last week. Friday night, a C-train that never arrived made me miss Holy Ghost and Moby at the last One Step Beyond of the season at the Museum of Natural History.
Saturday night was the opposite - I apparently arrived at Sullivan Room for Jeff Mills much too early. I caught the entire beginning of his set...which was very repetitive and seemed to be going nowhere for the first hour or so. You could tell he was focused in his own world, working towards creating something...but from the outside it wasn't sounding great to me. By 2:30 or so Sullivan Room was absolutely packed and so hot. I stepped out to get some air, which was the worst decision as the inside seemed even more unbearable upon returning.
Of course, right around when I re-entered is when Mills' set started to shift. Rhythms were building. Knobs were twisting. He was working the 909. Unfortunately by then I was completely done for the night...wanted to stay but couldn't do it. Some friends who arrived later stuck it out until nearly 5 - so good they didn't want to leave. C'est la vie! Sunday was great and turned the entire weekend around for me, but before I get to that, here are some options Thursday (6/11) & Friday (6/12) of this week:

No dancing to report yet this week, but I am still basking in the afterglow of last weekend. As if seeing Pilooski deejay everyone silly Saturday night wasn't enough, I awoke on Sunday with a full day of dancing ahead of me. I made it out the door and down to the BKLYN Yard for Sunday Best by 4:30 at which point I was completely stunned by the size of the crowd. The Yard was already more full than I had ever seen it last summer and it was still so early! It proceeded to get more packed with people as the night went on (apparently seeing over 1,000 people!), but it never felt too crowded. The food & booze lines were a little long at times, but you have to keep your eyes open. The smoothie line (equipped with vodka & rum) only had 5 people on it (while at that time, the line for the bar nearly ran the entire length of the Yard)!
Moving on...the music was excellent. I knew we would be in for a treat when I saw that Mr. Scruff had hauled 2 big crates of records with him down to the Gowanus. For 3+ hours the Scruffy one treated the crowd (which was a huge mix of young people, locals, babies, little kids, and dogs) to a wide range of sounds...literally everything from soul, funk, jazz, disco, to dancehall. He played it all. Check out some great video from Electrodrone below and get ready for another great weekend in dance!
