About The Dance Cartel
Driven by pumping bass, glitter and dance theory in near-equal parts, this 90-minute, energy-busting experience is unlike any other show in the world. Part dance, part video installation, part DJ set and part concert, OnTheFloor is much more than a performance. The Huffington Post aptly dubs it “a crazy, communal, underground, energetic, messy, drunken, carnivalesque, silly, social, artistic, glittery, participatory, emotional, vibrant, bass pumping, choreographic EVENT.”

Over the past few years, The Dance Cartel has fine-tuned their all-inclusive ‘shake-it-like-you’ve-got-it’ philosophy and high-octane choreography in monthly shows at Ace Hotel NY. As the audiences have grown, they’ve appeared on Late Late Show, Conan and in videos with Yoko Ono and Reggie Watts. The Dance Cartel will be presenting an ALL STARS edition of ONTHEFLOOR at Le Poisson Rouge, featuring special guests Zuzuka Poderosa, Grace McLean, DJ Average Jo and more to be announced!

Let’s talk about everyone’s favorite SHAW ME THE TICKETS giveaway. We have 2 pairs of tickets for the upcoming Kitten n’ Lou’s EXPOSED burlesque show at Joe’s Pub for the Wednesday October 21 show, courtesy of Thirsty Girl Productions. Click HERE for the giveaway details and good luck!


Before I started SHAW Promotion, before I even start attending NYC parties, my childhood friend Justine D would call me on the landline and ask me to attend her Tiswas party and she would always put me on the guest list. I decided to give Tiswas a try, I jumped on my 1975 Vespa and rode it to Don Hills and the rest is history. Tiswas became the party I went religiously week after week, I have met so many timeless friends there and saw so many bands right before they gain their international fame. I was also thrilled to have the opportunity to do promo for Tiswas party in the early 2000′ along with Motherf*cker, Rated X, Misshapes and of course, the Trash party.. (RIP DJ Jess). This Sunday (I can’t believe it’s the same night as my Bootie NYC party… boo..) is the 20th anniversary of this legendary Tiswas party at Bowery Electric. Featuring the original DJs Nick Marc, Justine D and Spiky Phil, this night will be EPIC. I will even sneak out of my Bootie party to say hi at Tiswas for a quick bit.  The rest of you should go to BOTH Tiswas & Bootie NYC for a perfect night out!

Alright, gotta run. We are currently working on a Google job and JD got to work at the Google headquarters in Meatpacking District, while our newsletter specialist Stephen Pandolfi is riding his motorcycle through the Blue Ridge Parkway.  How Pandolfi is able to send the email blast on the road is a mystery to me, but that’s how we roll.

Hello New York City,
I would like to open this week’s newsletter with a BIG shout out to my man, Twig the Wonderkid, for his 11th year of the one and only GLAMDAMMIT party celebrating eleven years of fist-pumping Rock ‘N’ Roll, Punk anthems, and glittery Glam Rock along with live performances and a cavalcade of stars! We all know that NYC is the greatest city in the world, but it’s also a tough one. To be rocking out so hard and keeping the scene alive for so many years is no small feat. There is a PBR open bar from 11PM to midnight plus special live performances from The Nuclears, Charm School, and Michael T and The Vanities performing selections from “Scary Monsters and Supercreeps” and other Bowie favorites. I wish I could be there, but I’m playing a show at Kingston but you should go. We have very limited SHAW Promotion guest list for this Saturday’s Glamdammit anniversary celebration, so you must act fast and R-S-V-P now!

Glamdammit 11th Anniversary!
