This Sunday, the Sunday Best series kicks off at The Yard in Brooklyn. If you've never been there, we'll say it right away - The Yard sits right on the polluted-ass Gowanus Canal. Yet somehow the setting ends up more bucolic than bubonic, thanks to leafy trees, nuff BBQ, and reliably great events - which, in the case of Sunday Best, is provided by a tasteful selection of DJs, from legends (Bambatta, Kevin Saunderson) to stalwarts (King Britt, Metro Area) to relative new-schoolers (Pilooski, Riton, Trus'me). It's like a night at APT but with cheaper drinks and circulating air! The debut edition of the party features Chicago don Roy Davis Jr, who destroyed it at Winter Music Conference this spring and has a great Scion Radio show. You should go! There's no work Monday! If you think that "awesome dance music" is somehow not "your thing," pretend it's another Indy sequel. Quest For The Soulful House, or something. Time for love, Dr Jones!
