We are your Sunday spot! An early night of great live jazz by Danny Jonokuchi & the Revisionists. Bring yourself, a date, or catch up with a friend in a lush private loft with a jungle-themed bar to quench your thirst. Or if you want to pick up your feet and give it a Swing, a lesson is included with your ticket, and our wide open wood dance floor awaits. Come as you are, no partner or special attire required.

6:30 pm Doors open
7:00 pm Intro Lindy Hop Lesson with Jenny Sowden, founder of Brooklyn Swings
7:30 pm Live Band and dancing (two sets)
10 pm Closing Time

Danny Jonokuchi & the Revisionists are "today's premier swing band" (Broadway World) with "a classic swing sound you wouldn't think possible" (Syncopated Times). They were unanimously named the winners of the 2020 Count Basie Great American Swing Contest, and their infectious sound has been described as "smile-inducing" (Downbeat). Multi-talented bandleader Danny Jonokuchi has been called "a rising star" (All About Jazz) and "a sound of this era" (Nextbop). Known for his trumpet, vocals, and "well-crafted arrangements" (Jazz Weekly), he leads an all-star ensemble that "has dancers in mind start to finish" (Syncopated Times).

Brooklyn Swings is a great chill place to learn Swing & Blues dances. These are Black American Culture Dances: Lindy Hop was made popular in Harlem, NY, Blues dances started in the South and ALL are danced all over the world today. We have locations in Prospect Heights, Williamsburg and Gowanus at this very Gemini & Scorpio Loft. We've been going for about 13 years offering weekly classes, private lessons, wedding lessons, dance events and invited to many private events. Wanna dance?

DDD is a queer-forward goth dance celebration, inviting all participants to let go, dance and play in our luscious private loft. We embrace all genders and sexualities and levels of darkness. Consent and polite party behavior strictly enforced.

Our DJs:

DJ Shiver has been bringing the best of darkwave, goth, industrial, and post-punk sounds since 2015. Having spun at Femme Fest LA, Defcon NYC, and co-founding clubs Dolce Vita and Physical Ruins, she continues to blend both beloved classics and the best of new dark music. She also runs Wire Trap music magazine featuring the best new darkwave and post-punk music and events.

DJ Stalagmike began his career as resident DJ at NYC's legendary club Albion before gaining a residency at Asylum Guild in the basement of the iconic Pyramid Club NYC. He is the founder of Defcon, NYC's longest-running Industrial party, now in its 15th year. DJ Stalagmike has spun countless sets at northeast's top Goth/Industrial clubs, many legendary EBM and Industrial concerts, and even a few festivals such as Kinetik, Cold Waves and Darkforce.

On stage: Go go and pole dancers...bring that folding money for stage and lap dance tips! On screen: dark visuals by resident VJs.

Special live set: Max Fractal (fka Kim Boekbinder) is exciting and terrifying - mixing sonic textures and electronic melodies to create a sound they call Queer Darkwave. It's dance music with a lot of feelings. It's feelings music with a beat. It's the weightlessness of seeing your crush across the room. Exciting. And terrifying. For Dark Decadence, Max Fractal will bring deep beats for dark places. IG: @maxfractal.
