We recently found this demo version of our tune Butterfly Kiss, an old favorite, in the Shagg archives. Expertly recorded and mixed by Stephen Shirk.

Get Shaggy with Santos

Shagg plays the Original Sessions Art House concert series at Santos Party House, Andrew WK’s giant new music venue in Chinatown/Tribeca. Moby and Thurston Moore are regulars, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs played there in April. Our show is Saturday, May 16 at 10:00 PM. Santos Party House is at 96 Lafayette Street, about a block below Canal. The cover is $10 and includes our latest CD. Come at 6:30 PM to catch Chen Lo, Wordspit, and Poe Picasso! Facebook people RSVP here.


Celestial event

Like Halley’s Comet, Shagg comes by every so often. So you shouldn’t miss our show on Friday, February 13, when we return to the stage to perform a set hosted by the OS Art House series. The show is at the John Street Bar & Grill, a divey place in the financial district that has 17 beers on tap. The cover is 10 bucks and includes a copy of our latest CD. The show starts promptly at 10:00 PM. Facebook users can RSVP here. See you then!
