Hey New York City,
Hope you had an amazing weekend filled with beaches, BBQ, and a whole lot of drinking (and not driving!). We attended a wedding, did the Zombie Crawl Brooklyn where my band Bikini Carwash played, and then booked it to Lake Mohawk in New Jersey to enjoy fun in the sun on a beautiful boat. Its been one hell of a long weekend, but its time to buckle down and get back to work — or is it?! Summer is here!
The photos from our Bootie Boat Party are up! You can see what you missed HERE taken by Alain-Christian. We haven’t released the date yet for the next Bootie, but keep checking back because we have more tricks up our sleeves and I can bet you will not want to miss the next one.
You can also expect more photos from DrivenByBoredom.com soon.
To kick start your summer activities, we have a few parties to titillate you. Let’s start with the outdoor one first. We are a proud sponsors of the Grand Street Alliance who will be hosting their very first “Grand Slam BBQ Battle” Brooklyn cook off taking place on Sunday on Grand Street between Berry and Wythe. Food, vendors, live bands, and of course the BBQ cook off will all be part of the festivities of the day, with surrounding bars in the neighborhood participating all day. For more details and information on this event, please CLICK HERE!
Also this week, Glamdammit is celebrating the 40 Anniversary of “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust” at Grand Victory; those kids love their Bowie and know how to party! A new party Lit Tuesdays from the creator of Fac Off, The Blackened Music Series wraps up the their final event at Saint Vitus bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with Merzbow from Japan. Unfortunately we do not have tickets to give away for this but they are $15 at the door and if you love metal, you will love this show.
We also have our beloved other weeklies such as Disco Down at Happy Ending, Camo & Krookers at Webster Hall with the very naughty Trash! party in the Studio below, our girl Queen Majesty (Deadly Dragon Sound) holding it down at Happy Ending Lounge, Props at The Gallery at LPR, Samuel Valentine parties and more.
Thank you for reading and have a great week!!
Andy Shaw and the SHAW PROMOTION team.
