Hello New York,
Exciting times for NYC with Halloween next weekend, one of the biggest party weekends for our town. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let us not forget how special this week is with College Music Journal’s CMJ Music Marathon 2014. I got my artist badge in hand and ready to rock the week!
My band, Bikini Carwash is performing CMJ on Saturday 10.25 midnight at The Paper Box. We are named “10 MUST-SEE BANDS AT CMJ 2014” by The Roosevelts and “5 Female-Fronted Acts to Catch at CMJ” by AXS! Get your $8 advance HERE because I really hope some of you guys can come out and see what all the buzz is about our awesome band. Like us on Facebook and follow our new Twitter and Instagram!
Scenic Presents is presenting the “Female Fronted Mayhem!” Official CMJ Showcase at The Grand Victory on Friday with The Violence, The Liza Colby Sound, J and the 9s and our good friends The Purslaines. Definitely another show worth checking out if you’re looking for some personal recommendations, we play a lot with those guys and they know how to rock.
Insound & Kanine Records is bringing you Frankie Cosmos, Flowers (UK), Beverly, September Girls (Ireland), The Vacant Lots at Brooklyn Night Bazaar this Friday and The Wild Honey Pie will bring The Beehive & 5th Birthday Bash on Saturday, both events are FREE!
After the wildly successful grand opening of Sally Can’t Dance party last month, Bowery Electric is back with the second SCD this time featuring a live performance from Captain Sensible of The Damned! The tickets are on sale for $10 or you can grab the $5 pass NOW at The Bowery Electric or at Niagara!
Finally, in some music related news, the good people at Dog-E-Dog are back again this Sunday for the 3rd Annual Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume & Trick Contest at McCarren Park. The SHAW team are all dog lovers and we will definitely be there with doggie costumes on, our very own Elvis and Thea came in 4th last year and are going for the win this year.
Andy Shaw and the SHAW Promotion team.
