Special guest DJ House Shoes (Detroit / LA)


Detroit Hip-Hop’s Ambassador to the World. Michael “HouseShoes” Buchanan has been an integral part of the long burgeoning Motown resurgence. Ask the people coming out of Detroit and they will confirm all of this. Houseshoes, a resident DJ at the Hip-Hop staple St. Andrews Hall from 1994-2004, has had personal influence over (at least) a full generation of emcees, producers, and then-future-DJs. Read more….

Props
Rich Medina (Jump N Funk) and Akalepse (Truth & Soul) are obsessed with records and playing them for people. When they DJ they bring you that raw, outside the Top 40, heavy, fun, sexy, soulful and honest music they are both known and respected for. These guys are avid record collectors, each with a heavyweight stash of over 20,000+ records, so of course you’re going to hear things you don’t know… that is the point. But not the whole point, they play classic tunes right next to obscurities, always pushing the listening audience a little in a sincere effort to break new records and reintroduce slept on tunes simultaneously. The party they do together is called PROPS, it is a soulful music lover’s paradise.

PROPS, Wednesday nights at LPR’s Gallery Bar is the continuation of Rich Medina’s infamous Li’l Ricky’s Rib Shack parties on Wednesdays at the now defunct APT (RIP). Back at APT, Akalepse would rock the upstairs space, while Rich rocked the basement. For 8+ years NYC couldn’t front…the combo was unbeatable. When it was time to move on, they chose to do it together.

New venue, new name for the party, new dynamic, same vinyl junkie DJs. Rich Medina and Akalepse continue to bring you that raw, outside the Top 40, heavy, fun, sexy, soulful and honest music they are both known and respected for. The music selection weekly runs the full spectrum of soul music, minus the conventional program director bottle poppers fare. Both Rich & Lepse are avid record collectors, each with a heavyweight collection of over 20,000+ records a piece, so of course you’re going to hear things you don’t know… that is the point. But not the whole point, they play classic tunes right next to obscurities, always pushing the listening audience a little, in a sincere effort to break new records and reintroduce slept on heaters simultaneously.

PROPS is not an event sold through flashy ads, industry relations and posturing….You can keep that… Props is a music lover’s paradise, designed for those who like to groove… Everyone is welcome, but everyone should also know that we are all about pushing music forward and promoting culture. We play for the open minded and the dancers first and foremost. Expect to be surprised, sweaty, and telling your friends how badly they need to join you the following week. PROPS is where you go to hear veteran DJs smash up a party with incredible records and that’s the facts jack…hope to see you there!”

SHAW PROMOTION newsletter & Event Details 5.29 – 6.4

“Grand Slam BBQ Battle, Glamdammit celebrates 40th Anniversary of “The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust”, Camo & Krooked, Stromy Leather, Lady Valtronic and more!”

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.

If you are anxiously awaiting photos from the Zombie Crawl plus after party, Coach Mike has them up HERE! (more to come)


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.

Remember you can RSVP for almost all of our events through our main page and don’t forget to go to our Facebook wall and give us some love.

Thank you for reading and have a great week!!

Andy Shaw and the SHAW PROMOTION team.
