Before I begin this week’s newsletter, I would like to share a wonderful news in the SHAW Promotion personal land. This past week was my birthday and we made a very, very special announcement that was the BEST gift I could ever asked for. We are adding the newest, youngest, and coolest SHAW ambassador to our team, coming in April 2015. Yes, I am going to be a father and I am overjoyed!!


Jumping right into this weeks events, the VIP ticket giveaway contest for tonight’s Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra is now closed, but our guest list is still open! RSVP by 3:30PM today and come see one of the best live bands from Tokyo at Irving Plaza! Do it!

After Comic Con, Zombie Crawl, and The Walking Dead season premier this past weekend, if you still need more zombie fix or want to get more out of your costumes, here’s another chance for you. The 10th annual ZOMBIECON – “KATACLYSM” edition is this Saturday, October 18!  This Zombiecon will go from 11:30AM until late at various locations in downtown Manhattan and is FREE FOR ALL!

For the rest of our events this week, please check out the rest of this newsletter or on the SHAW CALENDAR. Always make sure you check out our “featured upcoming” section at the bottom of the newsletter so you can plan ahead!

Before we go, our friend Brendan Jay Sullivan and Theophilus London are in the running for “Most Eligible Bachelor” on the Gotham Magazine. Brendan AKA DJ VH1 is going against some stiff competitions with Norman Reedus, Daniel Radcliff, Jake Gyllenhall, Al Pacino, etc. But hey, I don’t know them personally, but I do know Brendan who has been a part of our NYC nightlife for many years. Let’s give Brendan some love and support and vote for him!

Lastly, I would like to thank Caleb’s Kola ( / for their special birthday delivery with an awesome vintage cooler full of refreshing and delicious Caleb’s Kola. It arrived just in time for my little birthday party at McCarren Park and some of my friends got to sample this brand new product and everyone loved it! Be on the lookout for Caleb’s Kola!

We have the return of two highly anticipated events, both sponsored by SHAW Promotion, plus some new exciting ones this week. Let’s start with Deryck Todd‘s annual “BOWIEBALL – The Ultimate Glam Rock Revolution” at Le Poisson Rouge this Sunday.   Back by popular demand, nightlife impresario Deryck Todd presents the Fall 2014 installment of BowieBall, celebrating the apex of electric excess — BowieBall pays homage to the definitive rock icon, David Bowie, in an anything-goes charity extravaganza bringing together the best in music, art, fashion, and entertainment.  This will be a massive party with all the New York’s finest and should not be missed!!  Get your tickets HERE!

We also have the 8th annual NYC Zombie Crawl and Comic Con after party. You know how much we love a good Zombie Crawl and when it’s combined with Comic Con, it will just be that much crazier.  There will be FREE zombie meetup and the SHAW crew will definitely be there with our blood on!  After the crawl, the party continues at Bowlmor Lanes with performances from The Deafening featuring Tony Winner Lena Hall on lead vocals (Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Girls Girls Girls, Murder One, Gash and Danse De Sade. Check out the Brooklyn edition of zombie Crawl this year below!
