Bootie NYC at Europa
Bootie NYC

Hello NYC and beyond,
Last week, we had a great welcome back Bootie NYC party at Europa in Brooklyn. Although our Bootie NYC party was packed and total success, I couldn’t help but wish I was also at the final Trash! party to see everyone one last time under the same, naughty roof. But thanks to Nate of DrivenByBoredom.com who has the difficult job of capturing all of the raunchy fun, we all get to see what went on behind the doors in the basement of Webster Hall.  Click HERE for the extremely wild photos from the last ever Trash at the Studio at Webster Hall from Drive by Boredom!

So long Jess Marquis and Trash!

While I have your undivided attention (lets be honest, I am keeping you from looking at dog / cat photos for 5 minutes), I want to congratulate my homey, Queen Majesty, on her winning “Queen Majesty Jalapeño Tequila & Lime Hot Sauce” which took home 2nd Place in the Jalapeño Category at the New York City Hot Sauce Expo! If you haven’t tried it, you must! She sells them herself every weekend at Smorgasborg in Williamsburg, Brooklyn or if you’re extra lazy and just want it in your mouth without having to leave the soft glow of your computer, you can order it online here at her FaceBook page.

My band Bikini Carwash played a kick ass show last week on the Sex Dolls Tour with Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) + Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls). It was really fun watching these 2 punk rock legends on stage playing an intimate set to an enthusiastic crowd and telling stories of the “good old days”. Much respect to Scenic Presents for setting up the show. Check out some photos and a video of Bikini Carwash from www.yoshiakiito.com

Mr. Stephen Pandolfi will help us hold down the newsletters while we are gone; follow our Instagram pages, @AndyShawzy & @JaiDeeValentine, for some cool shots of whatever we wind up seeing.

“Live Trash!, Die Young” The Final Trash! party + events this weekend!

the final party

Hello New York,
We don’t normally send out more than one newsletter each week so you know this is for a very, very special occasion. As we are getting ready for our Bootie Mashup party this Friday at Europa, I got the news from Jess Marquis telling me about the FINAL TRASH! PARTY this Friday. WTF?! One of the longest running indie dance parties is closing!  I guess all great things eventually come to an end, but I was not ready for our beloved TRASH! party to end so suddenly, after 12 amazing years. Jess Marquis and his TRASH! party were a major NYC underground force starting back in 2002 at Rififi’s in the East Village. When I first started SHAW Promotion in late 2002, Jess Marquis was the first client to give us a chance at nightlife marketing and the rest is truly history. For many of us, Trash! at Rififi’s was where it all started, or at least it was definitely a place where we all ended up. It was an event where everyone knows each other and dances together, almost like the “Cheers” of NYC nightlife. Below is a link of many photos from the early days of TRASH! and as I was browsing through them, I was pleasantly overwhelmed to travel back in time when NYC nightlife was unified and FUN! I saw so many old and timeless friends, the up and coming nightlife personalities, DJs, promoters, parties, and agencies. I see photos of people who have interned and worked for SHAW Promotion over the years and even a photo of my wife, JaiDee Valentine, whom I met around the same time. So many great memories. *sigh*

Photos of TRASH! at Rififi from 2002 – 2007
Jess Marquis 2007

And to cap it off, here’s a personal message from the man himself, Mr Jess Marquis:

“After twelve years of falling in love on the dance floor, vodka swilling drag queens, burlesque bombshells, sex under disco balls, and the very best taste in music, the final curtain is closing on the infamous TRASH! party. What started as a desperate seed of a dream to find a dance floor that catered to my erratic and elastic taste in music, eventually blossomed into a decade long celebration of all things underground, aesthetically courageous, unfashionably hip, and decidedly below 14th St. I want to personally thank every post punk rocker, every new wave raver, every girl, every boy, and everything in between for a beautiful, brilliant party that outlasted two mayors, cabaret laws, terrorists attacks, NYU, four venues, blackouts, the 9th precinct, hurricanes, and Bush. Special thanks in particular to Shaw Promotion, Twig the Wonderkid, and Alex Malfunction, who turned the ravings of a mad, lunatic Capricorn DJ into a genuine gem of a party. We called it “TRASH!”, though it was anything but. Maybe it’s the clothes we wear, the tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair. Maybe it’s our kookiness…

But we’re trash, you and me. We’re the litter on the breeze. We’re the lovers on the streets. Just trash… me and you…

To say goodnight, we’ve put together an insane set spanning every genre from new wave to rave celebrating over a decade of fantastically trashy nightlife! Download for free, dance freely…
https://soundcloud.com/djjessmarquis/radio-free-marquis-ep-19
From the heart of my bottom,
Jess Marquis”

trash!

It is with great sadness for me to see the end of TRASH! party. It is definitely an end of a great era and we wish Jess Marquis and crew the best of whatever is lined up for them in the future.  Unfortunately, I am not able to attend this final TRASH! as we have our Bootie NYC Mashup party 80s VS 90s on the same night. But as I say in the biz, the SHAW must go on, and the entire SHAW Promotion crew will be there in spirit. Good bye TRASH!, thank you for so many wonderful memories.

Hey New york,
Although we have an incredible week of crazy fun events, it’s with a great regret for me to tell you that “Trash!” will have their final party after 12 years. Jess Marquis not only is one of my favorite nightlife personalities, but was also the first person to give SHAW Promotion a chance with nightlife marketing and breaking into the underbelly of New York City. We have no doubt Jess Marquis will be onto bigger and greater future and we will keep you posted with the next big thing from Jess. R.I.P Trash! Its been emotional…
