“Summer Nights Burlesque Sail, The Purslaines Record Release, The Man & Hypnotic Brass Ensemble BK Bazaar, Zion Gate, NYC Vintage Motorcycle Show and MORE”
Don’t let this rain ruin your summer plans, it will be sunny by Thursday just in time for a good sailing out in the open water – one of my favorite event producers, Shien Lee, has her Dances of Vice presents “Summer Nights Burlesque Sail – 1950s Golden Age of Hollywood”. Dances of Vice has been doing their sails all summer from June through September and this Thursday will be the second to last one, so All Aboard! Starring: Albert Cadabra, Peekaboo Pointe, Anna Evans, Raquel Reed & DJ Va Va Voon, it will definitely be one of the highlights of your summer. Check out the video below and get your tickets NOW!
I am a big fan of Oh! My Rockness for the best sources for live music and other cool parties. The T Presents, Death & Taxes and My Free Concert edition of Brooklyn Night Bazaar this weekend made the Oh! My Rockness’ “Best Shows in NYC this Week” with THE MEN and Purling Hiss, Honey and Friend on Friday. The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Jambalaya Brass Band & Oksa Faro will be performing for the Saturday’s Night Bazaar. Food, beers, vendors, arcade games, live music, FREE. What’s not to love about this place?!
Our good friends at the Lacey Allure Rock N Roll Girlie Show will be hosting The Purslaines Record Release Party this Saturday at Arlene’s Grocery. My band Bikini Carwash and The Purslaines are all part of the NYC rock and roll family and we had the opportunity to attend their intimate friends and family listening party on Monday; and I personally want to give a special shout out to The Purslaines for making one hell of a great record. Support your local bands, go see The Purslaines and help them celebrate their record release and pick up a CD that will rock your socks off.
Lastly for this weekly blast, this Sunday is the 11th Annual NYC Vintage Motorcycle Show – “Muffler Burn” at Works Engineering on North 14th street between Berry St. & Wythe Ave in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This is not a SHAW event, but we are riders, gear heads and huge motorcycle fans and would never miss a rockin’ block party! There will be countless cool vintage bikes and choppers plus BBQ and live performances from Screamin’ Rebel Angels and The Coffin Daggers. I brought my dog, Thea (#ElvisandThea) last year to the show who wasn’t very impressed, but I sure looked great riding around with her on the back of my bike. This event is free and it’s probably the coolest options you have for Sunday. See you there!
