“Frankie Bones, Campfire Music Fest, Rinsed + Fixed, Lyynks Muisc’s Single Mother + No Joy BK Bazaar, Vic Ruggiero and MORE”

SHAW 8.27-31.14


Hello New York City,
Are you ready for the Labor Day Weekend?! I’m sad to see Summer go, but Fall is one of my favorite seasons in NYC with all the festivals and the crisp air.  A quick shout out to Gotham Girls Roller Derby’s Queens of Pain for winning the bout last week and heading into the September 13 Season Championship game. Save the date!

Tonight, Wednesday September 27, the legendary DJ Frankie Bones takes over “BACK TO BROOKLYN to explore the past, present & future of Electronic Dance Music. Be part of this very special Factory history lesson as Bones throws down a marathon DJ set that spans his entire career. Our “SHAW Me The Tickets” giveaway for this “All Bones All Night” is already closed; we had tons of contest entries, but unfortunately we only had two pairs to giveaway. Many of the email entries looking to win the coveted pair of passes said, well, nothing. Here’s an example on what type of entries that will win you our free tickets from one of our winners, James Magyar:

Shaw me the tickets….id love two tickets id be happy with one..but ive bee listening to bones since ’94 when I was with go productions……and the second ticket is for my friend I have yet to meet but he a bones freak and I want to take him to school..Frankie Bones School so he could get a 6 hour history lesson…Plus Bones and etc. Brought me thru some hard times like the loss of my father and Brother.

Winner!!  Come celebrate 21 years of FACTORY events & support the longest running Brooklyn Underground with the Godfather of Techno and the man who paved the way for all of us. For all of you who didn’t win, the tickets are only $10, so there is little excuse not to be there!

On Friday and Saturday, Lyynks Music will be presenting Single Mothers, Dope Body, No Joy, Black Pus and more at Brooklyn Night Bazaar for some awesome FREE live music.  Our friends at FIXED will be throwing down on Saturday with Mount Kimbie & Aden at The Wick if dance music is more your vibe.

I will be at The Grand Victory this Thursday to see one of my favorite singer / song writers, Vic Ruggiero, the front man of The Slackers. I have been friends with The Slackers since the early 90′s and although I am still a big fan of The Slackers, I am an even bigger fan of Vic‘s solo music and stage charisma. I expect to see a lot of old friends at this show; a shout out to Scenic Presents for continuously bringing great music to NYC!

With all the great events happening in and around NYC, I am the most excited for our 4th annual Labor Day weekend company trip, SHAW Fest. For the past 4 years, SHAW Promotion and The Sensation Collective have been producing the camping/rafting trip in the Poconos, PA on the Delaware River. Sailor Jerry and Mercy have both been sponsors in the past as well as our sponsor this year, PBR.  Shira of PBR came to our #SHAWFEST2013 last year and said it was one of the most FUN and FAVORITE PBR sponsored events! As of now this is an intimate and invite only event, but maybe in the near future we might expand this into something larger for the community to experience. I would like to thank Shira and PBR for their continued support of our Shaw Fest, you truly make it a wonderful (and boozy) experience. Check out the photo below from last year’s SHAW Fest!

Hello New York,
I would like to start this week’s newsletter by saying HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY to the BOOTIE MASHUP party!  In honor of this glorious year, here’s Bootie’s Top 10 Songs of August, 2014 to get you excited for the weekend! CLICK HERE to download this month’s Top 10 in one convenient ZIP file for your listening pleasure.

We have 2 weeks left of September; I feel like I have done so much this summer and not enough at the same time. I hope you are all making plans to end your summer with a bang. I’m leaving for a camping trip in Cape Cod immediately after this newsletter for few days with the wife and dogs followed by our annual 4th Shaw Fest Rafting trip next week to close out a glorious summer.  If you aren’t afforded the luxery of getting out of NYC this week, fear not, I have some cool events for you to do here to make the most of your summer. Check them out below and be sure to follow me, @andyshawzy, on Instagram for some cool photos of my trip!

Dr. Marten has always been one of my favorite brands since I was a kid, I’ve been rocking them for as long as I can remember. It’s awesome to see them reaching back to their old roots and hosting the “Spirit of 69” party at The Delancey with live bands and food from Miss Lily’s. Our friend Scratch Famous of Deadly Dragon Sound System will be on the DJ deck before he starts his second shift at “Downtown Top Ranking” party in the basement. RSVP is a must for Spirit of 69,


There are only two Gotham Girls Roller Derby bouts left for their 10th season; the 2014 championship bout is September 13. Who will take the Golden Skate? That’s the question of the year. But in the meantime, you can get your FREE tickets for the Bronx Gridlock vs Queen of Pain game. I love the GGRD brand and although I love all the teams, I’m from Queens and the Queens of Pain captain Suzy Hotrod is my home girl and old band mate, so I will be rooting for them. This game will sell out quickly, so get your tickets NOW or just RSVP for your free pair courtesy of yours truly and “SHAW Me the Tickets”!

Speaking of our “SHAW Me the Tickets” giveaway contest, we also are giving away a pair of tickets to Factory Brooklyn featuring legendary Frankie Bones on Wednesday, August 27.  Scroll down the newsletter for all the information on this slammin’ party and how you can win tickets.

And here’s an honorable mention: we have been working with Afro Punk since day one. Although we are not working with the festival this year, the Afro Punk Festival 2014 this weekend will definitely be one of your BEST and coolest options. After the Afro Punk show on Saturday, be sure to go to Brooklyn Night Bazaar for some arcade games, more drinking and more free shows. Brooklyn Night Bazaar this weekend will be presented by Subscene Style & Audiofemme with Teen and Donald Cumming of Virgins and it’s going to be awesome. Be there for your one stop shop of free music, games, food, and vendors.

Before I go I want to leave you with a collage photo of my beloved Elvis and the now famous hashtag #TongueOutTuesday #TougueOutEveryday. He’s always good for a laugh. You can follow them on Instagram for more hilarious photos.

Hello NYC,
Don’t let this rain ruin your summer plans, it will be sunny by Thursday just in time for a good sailing out in the open water – one of my favorite event producers, Shien Lee, has her Dances of Vice presents “Summer Nights Burlesque Sail – 1950s Golden Age of Hollywood”. Dances of Vice has been doing their sails all summer from June through September and this Thursday will be the second to last one, so All Aboard! Starring: Albert Cadabra, Peekaboo Pointe, Anna Evans, Raquel Reed & DJ Va Va Voon, it will definitely be one of the highlights of your summer. Check out the video below and get your tickets NOW!

I am a big fan of Oh! My Rockness for the best sources for live music and other cool parties. The T Presents, Death & Taxes and My Free Concert edition of Brooklyn Night Bazaar this weekend made the Oh! My Rockness’ “Best Shows in NYC this Week” with THE MEN and Purling Hiss, Honey and Friend on Friday. The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble,  Jambalaya Brass Band & Oksa Faro will be performing for the Saturday’s Night Bazaar. Food, beers, vendors, arcade games, live music, FREE. What’s not to love about this place?!

Our good friends at the Lacey Allure Rock N Roll Girlie Show will be hosting The Purslaines Record Release Party this Saturday at Arlene’s Grocery. My band Bikini Carwash and The Purslaines are all part of the NYC rock and roll family and we had the opportunity to attend their intimate friends and family listening party on Monday; and I personally want to give a special shout out to The Purslaines for making one hell of a great record. Support your local bands, go see The Purslaines and help them celebrate their record release and pick up a CD that will rock your socks off.

The Purslaines

Lastly for this weekly blast, this Sunday is the 11th Annual NYC Vintage Motorcycle Show – “Muffler Burn” at Works Engineering on North 14th street between Berry St. & Wythe Ave in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This is not a SHAW event, but we are riders, gear heads and huge motorcycle fans and would never miss a rockin’ block party! There will be countless cool vintage bikes and choppers plus BBQ and live performances from Screamin’ Rebel Angels and The Coffin Daggers. I brought my dog, Thea (#ElvisandThea) last year to the show who wasn’t very impressed, but I sure looked great riding around with her on the back of my bike. This event is free and it’s probably the coolest options you have for Sunday. See you there!
