Hey New York City!
Unlike Hilary Clinton, the SHAW Promotion newsletters and emails are always coming from an official SHAW e-mail. Thank you for visiting us today, it’s icy and nasty out there, be sure to walk like a penguin and be safe!

I’m feeling sophisticated this week with 2 art events on Thursday, and it is timed perfectly for you to attend both.  “If You Ask Me… It’s About The Soul” group exhibition is curated by Ricky Powell at Sacred Gallery. This opening reception is from 8PM – 11PM with music from Queen Majesty (Deadly Dragon Sound) and DJ Mihoko, RSVP at info@sacredgalleryNYC.com. When the Ricky Powell show is over at 11PM and you feel so inspired, head over to Le Poisson Rouge for the NYC ArtBattles. Featuring Pesu, Zito, Demostina, and Andre Trenier, the original live art competition is back with their new installment in a series of events. March will bring, if history is any indicator, a vibrant sell-out show bringing to life the creative process in front of a live audience. This will be the first of six events culminating with the coronation of the King or Queen of NYC ArtBattles. Yay for ART and culture (and of course there will be booze)!

Now I would like to bring you back to the magical time of the mid 90’s, the first time I saw The World / Inferno Friendship Society at the old Knitting Factory. The super cool and wacky visuals of the band members were an immediate draw and the charismatic antics and charm of the singer Jack Terricloth was memorizing to watch. The audience was a perfect mixed between punks, skins, mods, rockers, and goths all dancing in perfect harmony. I haven’t seen The World / Inferno Friendship Society in over 10 years and of course we can leave it to Scenic Presents and Bro0klyn Night Bazaar to bring them back for a FREE show this Saturday, along with Runny, Joey Steel and the Attitude Adjusters, and Penguin!! This show is NOT to be missed, unless you have to attend your own baby shower like myself.  To match their amazing line up, T Presents is bringing Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution & Stumblebum Brass Band for an unforgettable weekend at everyone favorite Brooklyn Night Bazaar.

Hey New York City,
I hope you all enjoyed the brief heat wave we had on Sunday, a whopping 40 degree weather melting all that dirty snow. Well we are now right back at being freezing with even more ice now, even the East River is frozen over. March is around the corner and soon it will be Spring, what a wonderful thought while I try not to lose my sanity.

I would like to kick off the newsletter with a shout out to my beloved Gotham Girls Roller Derby who are back for their 11th season. The first bout of the 2015 season Brooklyn Bombshells vs. Manhattan Mayhem is on Saturday, March 14 at John Jay College. Get your tickets now as I am sure this will be sold out.  Join the Gotham Girls Roller Derby this Saturday as they officially debut the league’s newest skaters at the annual Derbytaunt Ball at The Paper Box!
