on the shore of the ultimate sea

Going Yard

A small group of us stopped by The Yard Sunday for the Sunday Best series and caught King Britt (seen here concentrating) at the party’s second week. The lineup is stellar: Stefan Goldmann, Trusme, Bambaataa, Rick Wilhite & Jerome Derradji, Riton, Kevin Saunderson, Move D, the Wurst guys, Tejada, Pilooski, Joakim, Metro Area. Phew. And that’s only leaving one or two weeks off.

It looks like all Sundays are going to be $8, in which case I’ll be there every weekend I’m in town–the spot, on the banks of the murky Gowanus (which Luis describes as a “disgusting trickle”) is perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon. Cross your fingers it stays off Euro-tourist radar, at least for this year.

(And, since you asked, Britt was disappointing. He played the bouncy house stuff we know and love for about 15 minutes then switched, rocking the new Laurent Garnier “Back To My Roots Original Afrodiziac Mix” [which you should get, it’s great and fun to play air synth/cowbell to], using that as a springboard into such worn out party jamz as “Blue Monday” and a remix of Thom Yorke’s “Eraser.” Eh well, it was free, and the supporting DJs were fun.)

Stay tuned for a DEMF update….
