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!

July / August 2015 Edition!

Bootie top10-julyaug2015

From the BOOTIE MASHUP creators & DJs:

“Our latest Bootie Top 10 is the usual mix of just-released bangers that have been blowing up our dance floor, as well as some overlooked gems that came out a while ago, but that we’ve only recently discovered.

We’ve got three bootleg remixes on this list, deviating slightly from our usual A+B mashup preferences. But there’s a reason our party is called “Bootie” — short for bootleg — rather than “Mashie.” We love it all, bootleg mashups AND remixes, just as long as no one signed off on the copyright clearances!

We’re also prominently featuring two recent mashup/bootleg albums on this list — DJs From Mars’ “Bootzilla 3,” and the annual “Mash of the Titans 4″ compilation. As usual, everything sorted alphabetically by bootlegger.”

Clinton Sparks ft. Ajay Popoff  – My Own Worst Enemy (Lit Bootleg Remix)

DOSVEC – Where Is My Bitch (Ludacris ft. Mystikal & I-20 vs. Bassnectar vs. Pixies)

DJ Dumpz – Break the 21 Guns in D Major (Charli XCX vs. Green Day vs. Pachelbel)

DJs From Mars – Bad Blood Iron Man (Radiocut) (Taylor Swift vs. Black Sabbath)

DJs From Mars vs. PH Electro – The Reason (Club Mix) (Hoobastank Bootleg Remix)

Hello New York,
Just when you think the summer is coming to an end, little did you know this is the week of FESTIVALS! This week we have not one, not two, but THREE highly anticipated festivals in NYC.

First on the list, the 3rd Annual Motorcycle Film Festival (#MFF2015) at Littlefield 9.23 – 9.27.
Have we mention how much we love motorcycles? I was totally honored to have my mini documentary titled “I Ride a Triumph” by featured on the 1st annual Motorcycle Film Festival.

I ride a Triumph

In the last 2 short years I watched this festival blowing up in popularity uniting bikers, film makers, and all things motorcycles gathering with their bikes, friends and enjoying some kick ass films. The MFF founders, Jack Drury and Corinna Mantlo of The Miss Fires, are two of the hardest working riders I know and hats helmets off to them for such a unique and amazing festival. Get tickets and details HERE!

Honorable mention, the 2015 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride this Sunday

Up next, the The 13th Annual NY Burlesque Festival (#NYBF 2015) by Pontani Sisters and Thirsty Girl Productions. 13 years is a lot of years to host such a fabulous and successful festival in NYC. The NYBF will take over NYC by the sexy storm in 4 days with 6 venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn with all the hottest burlesque performers and MC’s in the industry. “Celebrating over a Decade, of Glitter and Glamour in Gotham with over 100 performers from around the Globe!”  I also want to give a huge congrats to Angie Pontani for her adorable new baby girl.  Welcome to parenthood Angie!

On Saturday, it’s time to get even hotter, I’m talking really, really hot. Behold the Chile Pepper Festival 2015 at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden! “New York’s hottest fall tradition features spicy performances from around the world and the opportunity to sample dozens of hot sauces, pickles, and salsas as well as artisanal goodies from Brooklyn’s best chile-chocolate creators.” SHAW Promotion is actually not involved with the organizers of the Chile Pepper Fest, but I will actually be working one of the booths for the award winning Queen Majesty Hot Sauce! Come by, bring a date, bring your family, and get your hot sauce ON. Stop by the Queen Majesty Hot Sauce (#QueenMajestyHotSauce) booth and say HI!

Ever since the beloved Brooklyn Night Bazaar closed it’s door in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and found a new life at Riis Park Beach this summer, the good people at the Riis Park Beach Bazaar had been bringing quality FREE music every weekend as well as daily food and beverage concessions from NYC’s favorite local chefs. This weekend the #RPBB will celebrate their last shows of the season with the help of Time Out Live and Ipsum Magazine to present you two incredible days of FREE music on the Jacob Riis Park’s historic NYC waterfront. My band Bikini Carwash (#BikiniCarwashRocks) is so excited to be one of the bands on the Sunday 9.27 show opening up for The So So Glos.  Both weekend shows are listed in “Best Shows in NYC This Week” on Oh My Rockness and Critic’s Picks on Time Out New York: “Anthemic local fuzz-punks the So So Glos headline this Time Out New York–presented gig with power-pop quartet Bikini Carwash filling out the bill.” Bikini Carwash + RPBB = PERFECT SHOW. Come party with us!! Check out the complete line up for Saturday HERE and Sunday HERE!!

The ZOMBIE Apocalypse

The ZOMBIE Apocalypse has affected every aspect of our lives. It began with that nasty bed bug infestation, which quickly spread to farm animals and chiropractors. Noxious bedbugs seeped into the water supply. Hundreds of humans became zombies and the undead rose from local graveyards. The Center for Zombie Control (CZC) acted swiftly to contain the virus and stabilize the crisis. Now, zombies and humans are trying their best to live in peace and harmony. And guess what? Zombie bites are on the decline!

Ashley Morgan was engaged to Zack Porter before The Zombie Apocalypse and… he got bit. Ashley didn’t want to cancel her wedding to her dream man. She believes in true love. And he loves her with that shriveled little heart he has rotting in his chest. If only they had another brain.

You are attending the first EVER wedding between a zombie and a human!
