Hello Fellow New Yorkers,
I would like to start this week’s newsletter with the return of our “SHAW Me The Tickets” ticket giveaway! 2015 marks the 8th year we are working with the Gotham Girls Roller Derby as I watch the popularity of the league and these fast women on skates soar with sold out bouts and national championships. The next bout is Brooklyn Bombshells v. Bronx Gridlock on Saturday, May 9 and we got a pair of tickets for YOU! Click HERE for details on how to win a fun night out!
The 2015 Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York (#RBMANYC) is upon us and we are thrilled to be working them once again. We are promoting for the whole festival and some of the specific events throughout the month of May. Starting this week, we have the GHE20G0TH1K at Brooklyn Night Bazaar (Get tickets HERE!) on Saturday and 100 Disciplines at the Brooklyn Museum (Free with admission to the Museum) on Sunday.

Twig the Wonderkid’s monthly “Glamdammit” is back this week with live performances by The Sharp Lads, The Bowery Boys and Ingrid and The Defectors. There is a PBR open bar at 11PM when the party starts to help you get in the spirit of rock and roll and we have your guest list right here! Space is limited, RSVP is on first come basis.
The weekly burlesque party “Midnight Cabaret” at Drom is now FREE! Kicking off the May edition hosted by The Great Deceiver, Albert Cadabra, an amazing array of performances completed by circus / aerial and fire performers! Did I mention it’s all FREE now?! Your Saturday night can’t get any sexier, grab a date and some friends and go check out The Midnight Cabaret!
Our friends at Sailor Jerry are always involved with super cool events and this Sunday, Sailor Jerry’s delicious rum cocktails will be on special for $6 from 12PM – 6PM at the 2nd Annual Split’n Lanes & Dodgin’ Gutters: A Classic Motorcycle Show at Brooklyn Bowl. Team SHAW Promotion are riders and huge fans of all things motorcycle and Sailor Jerry, between Stephen and I we have 5 bikes and I will definitely be there this Sunday with my bike at the reserved motorcycle parking right out front of Brooklyn Bowl. This event is FREE and ALL AGES! Check out the video from last year’s Split’n Lanes and Dodgin’ Gutters below.
I would like to thank Run Around Sue for sending us some buttons in memory of the late Jess Marquis. I have many people asking me where to get these buttons, the supply is very limited, but Run Around Sue agreed to mail some out to people who loved Jess. Email me directly for details.
Lastly, I want to give a HUGE congratulations to my best friend who won first place at last week’s NYC Hot Sauce Expo on both flavors of her Queen Majesty Hot Sauce!! What an amazing accomplishment for a brand that’s only 2 years old, I am so proud!
For all other SHAW Promotion events this week, please check out the rest of the newsletter or our calendar for the latest. Thank you for reading, till next week!
Andy Shaw and the SHAW Promotion team.
