Hello New York!
Can you believe August is almost over?! I hope you all made Summer ’16 a memorable one with all of the fun events we’ve been sending your way. If you haven’t made the most of it yet, it’s not over because we have a lot coming up in Fall, so check out the events we are working on and some must see festivals!
I would like to start off by giving a shout out The Sons & Heirs for their incredible decade run and still going strong. If you want to see the best tribute to The Smiths & Morrissey, be sure to get your tickets for The Sons & Heirs’ 10 year anniversary show this Saturday at Gramercy Theater. This is an ALL AGES show and the opening band is Masters & Servants, a tribute Depeche Mode. Get your tickets HERE!
The SHAW Promotion crew is attending The Slackers concert cruise this Friday, presented by Rocks Off. I have personally knows the Slackers for 20+ years and they remain not only one of my favorite bands, but my favorite people; I am really looking forward to cruising around Manhattan rocking out with them!
Come this weekend it is one of our most highly anticipated festivals, the AFROPUNK 2016. Featuring Ice Cube
TV On The Radio, Tyler The Creator, CeeLo Green, Flying Lotus, Bad Brains, Fishbone, Living Colour, George Clinton just to name a few, plus Bites & Beats, Art & Times, Activism Row, SpinThrift Market and After Dark after party. This is to be one of the best events you can attend this weekend. I will be there both days and you should too! Get your tickets HERE!
If you are going to be in town over the Labor Day Weekend, may we suggest The Freedom Party, the 80’s VS 90’s at Le Poisson Rouge. The Freedom Party is the longest running Friday-night dance party in NYC history created in 2003. Come see what FREEDOM Party is about and get your 80’s & 90’s groove on. Get your $20 tickets HERE.

The SHAW crew will be on our 6th annual SHAW FEST, camping and rafting trip over the Labor Day weekend.
