“Bootie NYC Mashup Party at Gramercy Theatre, Shaken & Stirred Burlesque, BK Night Bazaar, The Church Grand Opening, Fixed+Aeroplane and MORE”

Hey New York City,

Happy Hump Day, I hope you are all recovering from your Irish festivities yesterday. I didn’t have the chance to go all out because I was busy making Queen Majesty Hot Sauce all night, but I did bring along some Guinness to get me through the night (although I never really need an excuse to drink my favorite beer).  Although I’m 100% Taiwanese, my son (who is due to arrive in 3 weeks!) is 25% Irish, so I can now say that I’m part of the Irish family.

Before I get into anything else, I need to tell you ALL ABOUT BOOTIE NYC MASHUP PARTY this Friday, March 20th.  It’s been 9 month since we had the last Bootie NYC party at the Northside Festival and it’s been too long.  This time we are teaming up with Live Nation to bring you the highly anticipated Bootie NYC at Gramercy Theatre and the $15 advance tickets are going f-f-f-FAST so get yours now HERE before they are gone.   Bootie Mashup is a global brand with parties all over the world (kind of like Fight Club) and Shaw Promotion is their brand ambassador and producer of the NYC chapter.  Let’s show our Bootie Mashup DJs and creators A PLUS D how we do it in New York City.  We have FREE Bootie Mashup CDs for the first 100 people through the door plus sideshow circus act and live mashup performances throughout the night.  I’m hosting all night long, so come say HI!!

If you’re looking for something a little heavier, you can head over to the grand opening of “The Church” – a new hard rock/heavy metal party at Pinks NYC. A new party at a new bar featuring our favorite nightlife face, Samuel Valentine + Avi Miller. this party is  FREE and provides cheap booze and a damn good time.

Thursday, Queen Majesty steps out of the kitchen and away from making her famous hot sauce to bring you night of Downtown Top Ranking reggae beats with the Deadly Dragon crew at The Delancey, or you can go check out my favorite all girl NYC motorcycle gang , The Miss-Fires , over at Mercury Lounge where they are presenting a Night of Bikes, Bands, and Babes.  Two really good options if you ask me.

If live music is how you want to spend your weekend, go check out our favorite Brooklyn Night Bazaar over in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  Defalco is presenting this weekend with tons of bands including The Ambassador, Karikatura, and King Holiday on Friday and Denitia and Sene with The Funk Ark on Saturday. Live music, local artists, local food, booze, and games will keep you busy for hours at this one stop shop.

Be sure to check out the rest of the events our calendar holds such as PopGun presents Fixed and tons from the Ecstatic Music Festival, including Terry Riley’s 80th birthday concert and much more.

I’m feeling sophisticated this week with 2 art events on Thursday, and it is timed perfectly for you to attend both.  “If You Ask Me… It’s About The Soul” group exhibition is curated by Ricky Powell at Sacred Gallery. This opening reception is from 8PM – 11PM with music from Queen Majesty (Deadly Dragon Sound) and DJ Mihoko, RSVP at When the Ricky Powell show is over at 11PM and you feel so inspired, head over to Le Poisson Rouge for the NYC ArtBattles. Featuring Pesu, Zito, Demostina, and Andre Trenier, the original live art competition is back with their new installment in a series of events. March will bring, if history is any indicator, a vibrant sell-out show bringing to life the creative process in front of a live audience. This will be the first of six events culminating with the coronation of the King or Queen of NYC ArtBattles. Yay for ART and culture (and of course there will be booze)!

Now I would like to bring you back to the magical time of the mid 90’s, the first time I saw The World / Inferno Friendship Society at the old Knitting Factory. The super cool and wacky visuals of the band members were an immediate draw and the charismatic antics and charm of the singer Jack Terricloth was memorizing to watch. The audience was a perfect mixed between punks, skins, mods, rockers, and goths all dancing in perfect harmony. I haven’t seen The World / Inferno Friendship Society in over 10 years and of course we can leave it to Scenic Presents and Bro0klyn Night Bazaar to bring them back for a FREE show this Saturday, along with Runny, Joey Steel and the Attitude Adjusters, and Penguin!! This show is NOT to be missed, unless you have to attend your own baby shower like myself.  To match their amazing line up, T Presents is bringing Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution & Stumblebum Brass Band for an unforgettable weekend at everyone favorite Brooklyn Night Bazaar.
