Hello New York and happy birthday to all the Libras. My birthday is this Friday October 9, which is also the same date as John Lennon and I will be playing a “birthday show” with my band Bikini Carwash at the Venom Party at The Cobra Club along with Monstrosity Burlesque.

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!
Lastly, with the ending of the Riis Park beach Bazaar concert series, comes the new Wildfeast Oktoberfest! ““We are proud to announce the opening of Wildfeast at Riis restaurant and bar, the offseason collaboration of Riis Park Beach Bazaar and Wildfeast Foods. Located within the iconic Art Deco Bay 9 pavilion (the current home of RPBB’s main food court) at Jacob Riis Park, Wildfeast at Riis will kick off its grand opening October 10 and 11 with a two day Oktoberfest – the first and only oceanfront Oktoberfest in New York City.”

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.
