Planetarium is an immersive hi-fi listening session.
We clear the floor between our custom speakers, so you can bring pillows, blankets, sleeping bags or anything else you like to get comfortable. Lie on the floor, stretch out on the couch and get lost in music.
Records are woven together from across the spectrum – new classical, electronic music, pre-war blues, new age, ambient, psychedelic rock, jazz, field recordings and beyond – and there are often live performances to augment the experience.
For this edition, we've got Eamon Harkin at the turntables and vibraphonist and composer Will Shore performing live throughout the evening. We first met Will through the NYC music institution, Nublu, where he worked with the legendary jazz maestro Butch Morris as well as Sex Mob and Tom Waits drummer Kenny Wollesen. Will released his A Hundred Times EP with us last year, and also performed at our very first Planetarium session. We still have goose bumps.
Drinks are available at the bar, and until our kitchen opens in mid-January, you can bring your own food or order it from a local spot. We have all the creature comforts that you might otherwise need inside so you never have to leave the bubble we’re creating. The event runs from 6pm to 11pm.
An important note: the night works best when everyone keeps their voice down. When you're inside the speakers, remain silent, and when you're outside of the main speaker area, please make sure you’re quiet enough that only the person you’re talking to can hear you.
We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
Indoors at Nowadays is a gathering place with an amazing analog soundsystem and wood dance floor. The room was dreamt up and brought into being by the Mister Saturday Night and Mister Sunday guys.
We're on the border of Bushwick and Ridgewood. We throw parties on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and we do immersive listening sessions called Planetarium on Sundays. In mid-January we'll open with food, drinks and good tunes playing on the hi-fi pretty much every day of the year.
Thursdays are free, and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays have a cover charge. If you're tight on dough but wanna join us, you can buy early bird tickets here on RA, or you can RSVP for reduced or free entry on Fridays and Saturdays at http://nowadays.nyc/rsvp.
