Hey New York,
Before I move on to this week’s events, I would like to give respect to Webster Hall for putting together such a emotional, beautiful, and appropriate memorial for Jess Marquis. Along with 15 other speakers, I had the chance to say my peace and share stories of Jess on stage to his friends and family. We were all so glad the Immler family had the chance to hear from so many people on how much impact Jess had made in our lives and in NYC. It was the biggest nightlife reunion and very heartfelt; it was something we all needed. Thank you Webster Hall and “Thank you Jess Marquis for connecting us all“.
With the untimely passing of one of the main creator and hosts, the team at “Shaken & Stirred” have decided they do not want to continued the party without Jess Marquis. Tonight, is THE FINAL Shaken & Stirred burlesque dance party: In Memory of DJ Jess at The Delancey. Be there for the last dance. All monies from the night, including Gogo tips, performer fees, and 20% of the bar, will be donated to Jess’s fund with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
If your still itching for some sexy, the new weekly Midnight Cabaret continues on Saturdays at Drom. This week’s edition featured DJ Fresh Prince of Darkness & Valora Dee as the Stage Kitten and hosted by Brooklyn’s lascious, hilarious showman of supernatural sleeze Dandy Darkly. We are still running the **Special $10 SHAW DISCOUNT with the code “cancan“!! Get your tickets HERE!
Brooklyn Night Bazaar and awesome FREE concerts this weekend is presented by Time Out NY. Live performances from Moss Icon, Guerilla-Toss, Beech Creeps, Multiculti & Voice Coils on Friday and Into It. Over It, Major League, Tiny Moving Parts, Collect Yourself & Safety on Saturday. The Brooklyn Night Bazaar was the WINNER of “Best Music Venue” in Time Out Love New York Awards in 2014 and you know that TONY is curating this showcase carefully to bring you the finest talents and for FREE! Knock yourself out!
We have many more events and options on weekends, but if a casual week night with games and delicious, inexpensive food is more of your steeze, look no further than the Rock and Roll Bingo at Pinks in the East Village. Classic bingo format with Rock’n’Roll trivia with prizes range from music memorabilia to free food and drinks and 2 for 1 Classic Burgers! The night is completed with music by Twigg Von Wunderkind and Emcee by Christopher Hardwick. Bingo!
Lastly, this Saturday and Sunday is the 3rd Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo at Brooklyn Expo, in Greenpoint Brooklyn. This is not a SHAW Promotion event, so why am I talking about this? Because 1. I am a big fan of anything spicy. 2. I am a HUGE fan of the Queen Majesty Hot Sauce. 3. I have been helping Queen Majesty making her hot sauce for the past few months and I will be working at the expo this weekend! Queen Majesty was the 2nd place winner in the Jalapeño Category for her Jalapeño Tequila and Lime Hot Sauce at the last year.
The Hot Sauce Expo is from 10AM – 6PM with $10 general admission. If you are a fan of anything spicy, this is not to be missed, or just come visit the Queen Majesty booth and say hi. Hope to see you there!
Thank you for reading, check out all the events we have this week below, and Happy Earth Day!
Andy Shaw and the SHAW Promotion team.
