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!!

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!
After a successful Noisey/Vice edition of Brooklyn Night Bazaar last week, Noisey is back once again this weekend with another rocking free show. Friday they feature Dave Hause (former Loved One and Paint It Blacker returns to Brooklyn for a full band set with Brendan Hill [The Curse, 'Resolutions'] on drums, Michael “Spider” Cotterman [The Loved Ones, Kid Dynamite] on bass, Pete Steinkopf [The Bouncing Souls] on guitar, and Tim Hause on keys.).

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. Get tickets HERE. If you don’t feel like trecking out to Queens, JDH & David P of Fixed is back at their favor place, Le Bain at The Standard Hotel this Friday. 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!
Andy Shaw and the SHAW Promotion team.
