“The Deli’s 10th Anniversary w Drowners & Diane Birch at BK Bazaar, Glamdammit w Midnight Mob, Gotham Girls Roller Derby Triple Header, Fixed w Simian Mobile Disco and MORE”
Hello New York,
Before I start this week’s events I want to say RIP Jeffrey Tonnesen and give my condolences to his family. I met Jeffrey through a mutual friend, Justine D, many years back and although I never got a chance to become close friends, I have always respect his DJ work and contribution to our industry. Jeffery’s sudden passing was a shock to us all and a reminder that life is beautiful and fragile. Let’s all love each other and live life to the fullest. RIP Jeffrey Tonnesen.
Jumping into this weeks events, there are only 3 bouts remaining for the kick ass 2014 Gotham Girls Roller Derby season. This Saturday will be the special GGRD Invitational Triple Header with NYC All Stars, NJ, Philly, and Canada teams at Abe Stark Arena in Coney Island. Tickets are still available HERE or you can win a pair from SHAW and catch all 3 games this Saturday for FREE!

If glam and rock ‘n roll is more your pace for Saturday, Twig the Wonderkid is back with his monthly Glamdammit party “Girls, Girls, Girls” edition with some of the top female fronted bands in NYC. Featuring live performances from Annie Activator, Midnight Mob and “Touch & Go” album release party for Briana Layon and the Boys. There will be a PBR open bar from 11PM – midnight and the admission is only $5! If you are broke but still want to rock, just RSVP here with us and we will get you in!
Lastly, The Deli Magazine (emerging music from your local scene) will be celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary this weekend at none other than the one and only, Brooklyn Night Bazaar. What better way to present you a fun free party with great vibes and tons of fun options. I was at BK Bazaar last week and they have added air hockey, pool tables, Jenga games, and a photo booth in addition to the miniature golf, arcades, and ping pong tables. Performing live on Friday is Drowners, Spires, Mainland, The Can’t Tells & Little Racer. On Saturday, The Deli will bring you Luluc, Secret Someones, The Prettiots, Poor Remy and the headliner Diane Birch. I met Diane Birch back in 2010 at the 6th Annual Paper Mag Night Life Awards when we were both the presenters for the Best NYC Club category. Diane was such a lovely girl and we had tons of fun on stage together. I am glad she is doing well with her music career and helping The Deli celebrate their 10th year. Go see all the bands for free this weekend!!
Thank you for reading this week. Please check out the rest of the newsletter or our Calendar for all event details. Have a great weekend!

Hey New York,
It’s hard to believe it’s already mid-summer; I need the warm weather to be here so much longer. So many of my friends are moving out West that I wonder what it would be like to move SHAW Promotion to the other coast, but I just can’t imagine leaving my friends and family and NYC behind. Who knows what the future will bring, but in the meantime I just love this city and take a full advantage of all the inspiring and wonderful things it has to offer.
Speaking of, the Gotham Girls Roller Derby is having another incredible season and we are only few bouts away before the final NYC championship of the season. Next Saturday, August 2, is the GGRD Invitational Triple Header bout with NYC All Stars going against NJ, Philly, and Canada teams. That’s 3 games for the price of one; you can get your advance tickets HERE. Or.. it can be 3 games for the price of NONE for you with our SHAW Me The Ticket giveaway!! Click here for your easy chance to win!
There are a few events I look forward to every summer in NYC and one of them is definitely The Rock ‘n Roll Luau #7 by our good friend, Laura, of Rebel Angel Productions. This year’s Luau will be this coming Saturday at The Paper Box with a full day of rockabilly, psychobilly, Rock ‘n Roll mayhem, art, Kustom Kulture, and motorcycles. The Luau starts at 3PM with bands from all over North America at 3 stages: Surf Stage, Tiki Stage, and Pink Flamingo Stage, plus tons of raffles prizes and giveaways. This event will sell out quickly, so get your advance tickets NOW! I will definitely be there and I hope to see you too!

On Friday night Caffeine Events & Bass Connection will bring you “!” with Justin Prime (a rare NYC appearance), Darren Styles, The Pitcher, Gammer, Star Eyes, Jubilee and much much more at the Melrose Ballroom in Long Island City, Queens.

The party is free, but you need to say “FIXED” or “JDH & Dave P” at the door for your easy entry!
Lastly, on Sunday one of my favorite punk bands growing up Subhumans is playing at Le Poisson Rouge, presented by Rocks Off. I used to proudly displayed their patch on the back of my leather jacket back in college and I’m thrilled to finally catch them live. Thank you LPR for the guest list, I can’t wait to get my Subhumans on this Sunday. Oi!
