Hello New York City,
Are you ready for the Labor Day Weekend?! I’m sad to see Summer go, but Fall is one of my favorite seasons in NYC with all the festivals and the crisp air.  A quick shout out to Gotham Girls Roller Derby’s Queens of Pain for winning the bout last week and heading into the September 13 Season Championship game. Save the date!

Be part of this very special Factory history lesson as Bones throws down a marathon DJ set that spans his entire career. Our “SHAW Me The Tickets” giveaway for this “All Bones All Night” is already closed; we had tons of contest entries, but unfortunately we only had two pairs to giveaway. Many of the email entries looking to win the coveted pair of passes said, well, nothing. Here’s an example on what type of entries that will win you our free tickets from one of our winners, James Magyar:

On Friday and Saturday, Lyynks Music will be presenting Single Mothers, Dope Body, No Joy, Black Pus and more at Brooklyn Night Bazaar for some awesome FREE live music.  Our friends at FIXED will be throwing down on Saturday with Mount Kimbie & Aden at The Wick if dance music is more your vibe.

I will be at The Grand Victory this Thursday to see one of my favorite singer / song writers, Vic Ruggiero, the front man of The Slackers. I have been friends with The Slackers since the early 90’s and although I am still a big fan of The Slackers, I am an even bigger fan of Vic‘s solo music and stage charisma. I expect to see a lot of old friends at this show; a shout out to Scenic Presents for continuously bringing great music to NYC!

With all the great events happening in and around NYC, I am the most excited for our 4th annual Labor Day weekend company trip, SHAW Fest. For the past 4 years, SHAW Promotion and The Sensation Collective have been producing the camping/rafting trip in the Poconos, PA on the Delaware River. Sailor Jerry and Mercy have both been sponsors in the past as well as our sponsor this year, PBR.  Shira of PBR came to our #SHAWFEST2013 last year and said it was one of the most FUN and FAVORITE PBR sponsored events! As of now this is an intimate and invite only event, but maybe in the near future we might expand this into something larger for the community to experience. I would like to thank Shira and PBR for their continued support of our Shaw Fest, you truly make it a wonderful (and boozy) experience. Check out the photo below from last year’s SHAW Fest!

Hello NY,
We’re back from our cross country trip! 18 states and 6,159 miles with breathtaking historical Route 66, National and State parks, fun and interesting cities and bars plus some good friends and family to top it off.

While traveling through Colorado, JaiDee and I were the second guest ever at the world’s first Bud & Breakfast in Denver. With an open 4:20PM bud bar and the casual presence and variety of marijuana everywhere, I felt like I was in a different world. I couldn’t help to wonder why we couldn’t be like that in NYC? Well, on Tuesday, May 6, “It’s Time NY” is an event happening with an incredible evening of music and awareness in support of sensible marijuana laws in the state of New York at The Bell House. There will be speakers along with DJs and bands including Queen Majesty and my band, Bikini Carwash and many others. Get your $15 tickets HERE, it is going to be a fun, informative night.

Speaking of PBR, after working with one of my favorite girls Shira of PBR for so many years, she is sadly leaving this cold weather behind and moving to LA like a smart women. Most of you reading this can thank Shira for enjoying few free cans of the delicious PBR at variety of events at one point or another – she even sponsored our wedding rafting trip (#ShawFest2013)! Today is Shira’s last big PBR event, “A Blank Canvas” PBR art can show at Project Parlor. With 30+ artist showcasing their best artwork on PBR cans, this sounds like a fun and artistic way to wrap up a great PBR career in her NYC chapter. See you there!

As per our tradition, here is a list of our favorite things we did this year in a round of of “SHAW Promotion’s BEST 13 of 2013”, as told by JaiDee Valentine.

13. Coney Island USA Spring Gala 2013: The Burlesque Manifesto – February 25, 2013

SHAW Promotion has been lucky enough to work with (and help save!) Coney Island and we were invited VIP style this year to the Burlesque Spring Gala fund raiser which was packed with half naked dancers and freak show stunt people.

12. 3rd Annual Pet Day at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park and
Pet Costume Contest June 15, 2013

This year we signed our own dogs up to compete in the Coney Island Pet Day (Elvis, Thea, and our friend’s dog, Blue). They didn’t win, but they sure did turn a lot of heads. We even got to take them on Deno’s Wonderwheel! A must do for the Spring time.

11. Verboten Stage One “Never Say Never” – July 4, 2013

Verboten has always done amazing events, but last Fourth of July’s Williamsburg Waterfront party was packed with over thousands of people raging from the afternoon ’till midnight with the greatest view of Manhattan.  Win!

10. “Skyy and Sea” Skyy Vodka Governors Ball Kick Off Cruise and
Governor’s Ball – June 6 & 7, 2013

SHAW Promotion was invited by our good friend Nicky Digital to a all you can eat and drink #SkyyandSea cruise around NYC.  Good times, good friends, good booze and of course, great views.  The next day we were given Two weekend passes to Governor’s Ball by our friend Alyson Schill, who was the recycling director. Yes please! Despite it raining, we had so much fun in what turned out to be a huge mud pit.  Gun’s and Roses, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros, Kendrick Lamar, and so much more… no way a little rain kept us away!

9.  Bowie Ball: The Ultimate Glam Rock Revolution – October 12, 2013

Oh that Deryck Todd, fashion designer, party producer and the savior of NYC’s glam rock revolution that is the Bowie Ball. This is the closes thing to the one NYC party I miss dearly, the MOTHERF*CKER party (RIP). We are all looking forward to see more Bowei Ball next year!

8. Lizzie Steelheart’s (of Bikini Carwash) Wedding and Road Trip – April, 2013

The singer of Andy’s band, Bikini Carwash, got married to her best friend in Kentucky in April which mean “Road Trip!” to us.  They held their wedding at the Newport Aquarium which was completely closed off to everyone but wedding guests which gave us a intimate look at penguins, sharks, and included a jellyfish cocktail hour. Bonus: the bride played a set in her wedding dress!  We also use this opportunity to camp at Smokey Mountains and traveled the entire length of Blue Ridge Parkway.

7. Brooklyn Night Bazaar – November 1, 2013 – current

Brooklyn Night Bazaar came back with a vengeance this year! Fixating itself at its new permanent home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn open year round, they have received huge nods from everyone in NYC not only because of their genius idea of a night market, but to add awesome live bands and to pair of with some of the hottest brands and magazines.

6. Red Bull Music Academy – April – May, 2013

Red Bull Music Academy creamed it this year in music in NYC, presenting 38 live concerts in one month.  Wow!  SHAW Promotion had the opportunity to help Red Bull with this incredible month long program with countless DJs, parties, Workshops, Music Battles, and on and on.  We were also given enough Red Bulls to last the remaining year of 2013 and into 2014!

5. Bootie NYC St Paddy’s Mashup Party – March 16, 2013
NY’s Wildest St. Patrick’s Day Bash

SHAW Promotion has been partnering up with A+D, the creator of Bootie Mashup party from SF, for many years.  In 2013, we took up residency at Le Poisson Rouge and it has been a wild ride.  One of my most memorable Bootie NYC parties was our St. Paddy’s with live performance by Smash Up Derby.  Village Voice hailed it “NY’s Wildest St. Patrick’s Day Bash” and you can see all the awesome photos from Maro Hagopian of the Village Voice HERE!

4. Metro Stylee Reunion at Apple Stomp SKA Festival – May 31st & June 1, 2013

Check back for more updates on when you can see their next show, January 19, 2014 at the Gramercy Theater!

3. Bachelor’s Motorcycle Trip – July, 2013

For Andy’s bachelor party, he decided he didn’t want the usual night of strippers and liquor, so he rounded of 4 of his buddies and they took a week to travel New England on their motorcycles, camping from state to state.  Not much better than the open road and your friends.

2. Andy & JaiDee’s Honeymoon in Bali – September 28, 2013

Two weeks in paradise on a lovers vacation? Yes please! We stayed at 5 star resorts, saw exotic birds and flowers, ate way too much, and traveled the country learning about their culture, people, music, cuisine and art.  Bring me back to the beach please!

Hello friends,

Labor Day, what does that even mean anymore?  Most people now a days think of it no more than an excuse to end the summer with a beer fest and some good camping (or a boat if you have a friend who’s parent’s brother’s boss owns one).  Well I’ll tell you what Labor Day this year means to me, the biggest production SHAW Promotion has ever done. This Saturday premiers an event two years in the making, SHAW Fest 2013 in the mountains of Greeley Pennsylvania, a.k.a my wedding weekend where JaiDee and I say “we do, duh!“. We are celebrating with a 3 day outdoor wedding festival complete with camping, a bouncy castle, outdoor games, an Indian buffet catered from Jackson Diner in Jackson Heights, Queens and rafting down the Delaware River to seal the deal. We have DJs DRG, Daniel Albrigo of Mother Brother, and Queen Majesty sets along side of live performances by Metro Stylee and Bikini Carwash (my bands!). I want to give a huge THANK YOU to our amazing friends and sponsors, Sailor Jerry Rum, PBR, and Mercy for their support of SHAW Fest 2013. It’s going to be an epic long weekend and I’m looking forward to seeing our loved ones gathered together as I become one with my partner in crime, the love of my life. Be on the lookout for photos from us on Instagram, #shawfest2013, and from our beloved photographers and friends at Shooting Stars Wedding.
