The BK Bazaar will end 2014 with a bang with Psychic TV live for 2 nights next weekend and a NYE’s party with Machinedrum + Friends.

After a very fun a rocking year, my band Bikini Carwash will be playing our last show of 2014 at Big Sky Works with our friends at .357 Lover. Bikini Carwash will be taking January off so this will be your last chance to see us until February of 2015! Come hang, come rock. Hope to see you!

Hello New York City,
Did anyone make it out to the Tumblr 2014 Year in Review party at Brooklyn Night Bazaar last night? From all the photos I saw, it looks like the party of the century. The SHAW Promotion team and myself were at Brooklyn Bazaar all day doing some installations for them, I was so exhausted afterwards that I fell asleep and never made it out. Major bummer! I have never seen Brooklyn Night Bazaar look so good after the transformation, good job Tumblr and thank you for hiring the SHAW team to help!

Another great holiday celebration this week is the “Ilegal Pop Up” from Ilegal Mezcal with music, art, shopping, and my favorite, motorcycles, at Ilegal Social Club. As if this pop-up market isn’t cool enough, on Saturday there will be a motorcycle rally organized by Jane Motorcycle, meeting at 12PM in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and riding to the Ilegal Social Club (Route Here).  1PM Arrive at Ilegal Social Club, special brunch, cocktails, and live music awaits; I am so there!

Lastly on a personal note, I have been taking up a part time sous chef position to help my best friend DJ Queen Majesty with making her famous Queen Majesty Hot Sauce (#QmHotsauce). On Sunday December 14, my lovely wife JD Valentine and I will be assisting Queen Majesty with her booth at Smorgasburg Winter Flea Holiday Market, selling her hand-made Scotch Bonnet and award winning Jalapeno hot sauce. If you have not been to the new winter location yet, it is one of the largest and best holiday markets in NYC. Come check out the market, get some food, shop, come say hi and get some hot sauce for yourself or your loved ones!

SHAW 12.4-7.14


Hey New York,
My morning routine has always been a glass of fresh squeezed lemon water, coffee (very important), and tuned into 1010 Wins for news and weather as I settle into my office chair. I am always shocked to hear friends telling me that they are unaware of the weather/upcoming rain etc, so I figure I would start letting you know the weather on the weekly basis since we are always encouraging you to go out with our newsletters, especially with the Winter months being here. So here you go, you are welcome.

NYC weather

We had the pleasure of partying with Hot Chip for 6 days straight on a boat at the SS Coachella 2 years ago and they are just the coolest. Let’s welcome Hot Chip this week along with JDH and Dave P. of “Fixed” to break in the new Greenpoint, Brooklyn venue, Good Room (formerly known as Club Europa) on Saturday night. Hot Chip will be DJing from 11PM-4AM, so get your dancing shoes ready! Get your $10 advance tickets HERE.

The monthly “Glamdammit” party brought to you by Twig the Wonderkid is back this Saturday at The Grand Victory featuring a live performance from The ZerosHail Action & Samantha plus a PBR open bar from 10PM – 11PM. Tickets are only $7, but if you are saving money for your holiday shopping, we can hook you up with our SHAW guest list; RSVP here

T Presents is back once again to bring you Brooklyn Night Bazaar this weekend featuring Alberta Cross, The Candles, and Invisibleman on Friday and Frnkiero and the CellabrationTransit, Northern Faces on Saturday. It will be the perfect place to see FREE shows, play arcade games, drink, eat and shop some finest local vendors to get your shopping in order for the season.

To help you get into the holiday spirit, Greenpointer’s is back with their annual Holiday Market featuring tons of great vendors, food, art, crafts plus free photo booth, free nail art and free massages and raffle prizes. I attend Greenpointer’s holiday market every year and always have a blast, check it out for something new to add to your schedule!

Lastly on a sad note, we had a very tragic loss this week with the passing of Brooklyn favorite local artist, motorcycle outlaw, and just an overall amazing person, Ray Abeyta. I had only met Ray a few times, but I see him in my neighborhood often and have always looked up to him because of his passion for motorcycles. His sudden passing had shaken up the art and motorcycle community and we are all deeply sadden by it. Today, Thursday 12.4 at 6PM there will be a parade of “Last ride with Ray” at Black Bear Bar (N 6th St between Kent and Wythe, Brooklyn). If you had the chance to know Ray, this is your last chance to pay respect.

Ride In Peace, Ray Abeyta.

Ray Abeyta

Thank you for reading, see you next week.
