DJ Monchan operates the Dailysession DJ-mix site, heads up DS Records and is a buyer at A1 Records (he's behind the shop's superb selection of house and techno). In other words, his knowledge runs deep and he's got the crates to match. As for Ivan Monegro, his resume boasts a couple of New York's record digging institutions — Dope Jams, A1 — but you don't need to check his credentials to find out he's a music lover and dedicated collector. You'll hear it loud and clear in his sets, which combine classic club vibes with newer, raw cuts. He and Monchan serenade the Nowadays floor with records you wish you had starting at 8pm.
Nowadays is an indoor and outdoor gathering place on the border of Bushwick and Ridgewood. We've got a full bar, a kitchen, a nice sound system, a wood dance floor and lots of trees and house plants.
Most of the time, it's free to come to Nowadays, but we do have a cover for some of our nighttime events. If there's a cover but you're a little tight on dough, you can buy early bird tickets on RA, or RSVP for reduced entry on Fridays and Saturdays at http://nowadays.nyc/rsvp
We want Nowadays to be a comfortable space for everyone. Please treat everyone with respect when you're here. If someone says or does anything to make you feel uncomfortable, let us know. All of our bartenders, security, managers, sound staff and door staff can help you.
Also, for the sake of the vibe, please don't take pictures or use your phone on or around the dance floor.
Thanks! And we look forward to seeing you soon.
