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!

Shaw Tumblr Bazaar

We have a lot of great parties this week, plus some equally awesome holiday markets to get your festive shopping on. The Rock n Roll Girlie Show will host a benefit concert for Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue this Saturday at Arlene’s Grocery.  Featuring live performances from The Purslaines – 10PM, J and the 9s – 11PM and my band Bikini Carwash – 12AM, along with go-go girls Gemini Bltz, Marinara Stardust & Sincerely Y.Ours.  All proceeds will go to Badass BK Animal Rescue!  I hope to see some of you rock and roll animal lovers!

Another great holiday celebration this week is the “Ilegal Pop Up” from Ilegal Mezcal with music, art, shopping, and my favorite, motorcycles, at Ilegal Social Club. As if this pop-up market isn’t cool enough, on Saturday there will be a motorcycle rally organized by Jane Motorcycle, meeting at 12PM in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and riding to the Ilegal Social Club (Route Here).  1PM Arrive at Ilegal Social Club, special brunch, cocktails, and live music awaits; I am so there!

Lastly on a personal note, I have been taking up a part time sous chef position to help my best friend DJ Queen Majesty with making her famous Queen Majesty Hot Sauce (#QmHotsauce). On Sunday December 14, my lovely wife JD Valentine and I will be assisting Queen Majesty with her booth at Smorgasburg Winter Flea Holiday Market, selling her hand-made Scotch Bonnet and award winning Jalapeno hot sauce.

“Alberta Cross & Frnkiero and the Cellabration BK Bazaar, Fixed + Hot Chip, Glamdammit, Rebel Night, Greenpointers Holiday Market”

SHAW 12.4-7.14


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.

Hot Chip video

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.

Hello New York,
I hope everyone had a fun Halloween weekend and didn’t get into too much trouble.  Did you all vote yesterday?  Voting has been a family tradition ever since I was was a kid going with my mom, we always made a date of it by voting then chowing down on some food and talking about it. Another noteworthy event for me yesterday was going to see Baby Metal at Hammerstein Ballroom put on by Live Nation.  If you didn’t go, you definitely missed out on a very interesting band from Japan – three very young J Pop singing girls performing over a metal band.  Be sure to check them out next year when they come back to the USA.


This weekend is the return of the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival. Although we are not working with BKEMF, it’s worth a mention because one of our favorite DJ duo’s, JDH & Dave P, will have their own Fixed Stage on Saturday with Aeroplane at Cameo Gallery. JDH and Dave P are quite the busy ones week with The Magician at Output tonight and Gesaffelstein at Terminal 5! That’s 3 chances to catch them live.

Lyynks Music will be presenting your FREE music and entertainment this weekend at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar. Featuring The Menzingers, Spraynard, Captain We are Sinking, Pale Angels and Iron Chic, Beach Slang, Blessed State and Collect Yourself.  Brooklyn Night Bazaar works hard every week to bring you variety of live music free of charge and it is always my go-to place on weekends.

The Menzingers video

Listening to punk rock music growing up, I always held a special place in my heart for labels such as Lookout Records, Fat Wreck Chords, 2 Tone, Taang!, Go-Kart, Epitaph, etc. When we got a call from Epitaph Records asking for promo and marketing help in NYC, it was certainly a personal and professional victory.  This week we are helping Epitaph with their sister label, Anti Records, on the NYC’s Anti Thesis concert on Monday, November 10th at Brooklyn Masonic Temple. Curated by Daniel Lanois , the evening will feature full-set performances from Lanois, The Antlers and Tinariwen as well as special guest Lonnie Holley. It is a celebration of music from vastly different origins which exists outside of traditional genres, structures and rules. For more info on Anti Thesis, click HERE!  and you can get your tickets NOW!

Daniel Lanois  Opera

That will do it for this week. Thank you for reading and go enjoy the rest of your week at these super fun events!
