While living in Brazil, Brian "Butter" Thomas organized the legendary Dirty Black Disco parties. These days, he calls NYC home and stays busy running The Mixtape Shop. Sharing the night is Donna Leake. Donna is a resident DJ and employee at London's Brilliant Corners, a regular on NTS Radio and a passionate music lover with far-reaching tastes. She and Brian will lay down a globe-trotting groove of disco, funk, jazz and more 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.
