Bootie NYC Mashup, Best of 2014 Mixtape – 20 of the year’s best mashups + 10 bonus tracks!

Best of Bootie 2014 mixtape
20 of the year’s best mashups + 10 bonus tracks!

“It’s that time of year again! We’ve just compiled and mixed our 10th (yes, TENTH) “Best of Bootie” mixtape compilation, complete with 20 of the year’s best mashups, plus 10 bonus tracks.

As always, this mixtape really sonically represents the sound of 2014 at Bootie, from the “kick-off” right after the Midnight Mashup Show, to the sing-alongs, to the “hands up” EDM mashup bangers, to the cheesy pop classics, all the way down to the chilled-out come down, and the last slow jam of the night. It’s all packed in here, in a convenient 77-minute non-stop mixtape!” ~ A+D of Bootie Mashup

“Winter Jazzfest 2015, Driven By Boredom Dinner w. Igor Book Release Party, Fixed + Joakim, BK Bazaar w The Parlor Mob & Dead Stars and MORE!”

Greetings from Mexico,
Happy New Year everyone! After hearing and seeing countless incredible photos of Tulum Mexico, my wife, JD and I, decided to visit Cancun/Tulum for our “Babymoon”; one last trip before this kid comes out! Plus, the timing couldn’t have been better as I see the NYC is going through another dreadful arctic blast. We are staying at an all inclusive resort in Cancun for it’s endless food and drink amnesties and the super pampering as a part of the Babymoon, but Tulum is truly where it is at. The majestic Mayan Ruins, soft white sand with brilliant turquois ocean, delicious local food, laid back atmosphere, and breathtaking cenotes (watering holes). I see why this place is all the rage and I can’t recommend it enough. We will be back in NYC this weekend and I am already dreading it to no end.

Tulum Mexico

For those of you in pushing through in New York City, we’re still here for you to make the best of it with some handy event suggestions.

The book release party is on Thursday, January 8, also in conjunction with Prince Terrence and Haruka Salt‘s new party Club 81. I will still be in Mexico and miss this party, but you certainly should not. Expect to see hot babes, cool rockers, get some tattoos, free cupcakes and open bar from 10-11pm sponsored by Tullamore Dew Whiskey.

Food Tattoos

The Brooklyn Night Bazaar this Friday is a special edition of “Locals Only”, a showcase of some favorite up and coming BK bands!

Hello New York City,
Did anyone make it out to the Tumblr 2014 Year in Review party at Brooklyn Night Bazaar last night? From all the photos I saw, it looks like the party of the century. The SHAW Promotion team and myself were at Brooklyn Bazaar all day doing some installations for them, I was so exhausted afterwards that I fell asleep and never made it out. Major bummer! I have never seen Brooklyn Night Bazaar look so good after the transformation, good job Tumblr and thank you for hiring the SHAW team to help!

Hey New York,
My morning routine has always been a glass of fresh squeezed lemon water, coffee (very important), and tuned into 1010 Wins for news and weather as I settle into my office chair. I am always shocked to hear friends telling me that they are unaware of the weather/upcoming rain etc, so I figure I would start letting you know the weather on the weekly basis since we are always encouraging you to go out with our newsletters, especially with the Winter months being here. So here you go, you are welcome.

NYC weather

We had the pleasure of partying with Hot Chip for 6 days straight on a boat at the SS Coachella 2 years ago and they are just the coolest. Let’s welcome Hot Chip this week along with JDH and Dave P. of “Fixed” to break in the new Greenpoint, Brooklyn venue, Good Room (formerly known as Club Europa) on Saturday night. Hot Chip will be DJing from 11PM-4AM, so get your dancing shoes ready! Get your $10 advance tickets HERE.

The monthly “Glamdammit” party brought to you by Twig the Wonderkid is back this Saturday at The Grand Victory featuring a live performance from The ZerosHail Action & Samantha plus a PBR open bar from 10PM – 11PM. Tickets are only $7, but if you are saving money for your holiday shopping, we can hook you up with our SHAW guest list; RSVP here

T Presents is back once again to bring you Brooklyn Night Bazaar this weekend featuring Alberta Cross, The Candles, and Invisibleman on Friday and Frnkiero and the CellabrationTransit, Northern Faces on Saturday. It will be the perfect place to see FREE shows, play arcade games, drink, eat and shop some finest local vendors to get your shopping in order for the season.

To help you get into the holiday spirit, Greenpointer’s is back with their annual Holiday Market featuring tons of great vendors, food, art, crafts plus free photo booth, free nail art and free massages and raffle prizes. I attend Greenpointer’s holiday market every year and always have a blast, check it out for something new to add to your schedule!

Lastly on a sad note, we had a very tragic loss this week with the passing of Brooklyn favorite local artist, motorcycle outlaw, and just an overall amazing person, Ray Abeyta. I had only met Ray a few times, but I see him in my neighborhood often and have always looked up to him because of his passion for motorcycles. His sudden passing had shaken up the art and motorcycle community and we are all deeply sadden by it. Today, Thursday 12.4 at 6PM there will be a parade of “Last ride with Ray” at Black Bear Bar (N 6th St between Kent and Wythe, Brooklyn). If you had the chance to know Ray, this is your last chance to pay respect.

Ride In Peace, Ray Abeyta.

Ray Abeyta

Thank you for reading, see you next week.
