LAUNCH PROJECT

Role:
Creator, Producer, Talent Booker, Creative Director, Curator, Sponsor & Artist Relations

Challenge:
After every issue of Royal Flush is released, we have always hosted a massive book party with bands, celebrity MCs, live sponsor activations and more. These events spawned several art gallery exhibits, concerts, in-store book-signings, guest lectures and even a live wrestling exhibition!

The Project:
The first Royal Flush event was launched in 2001 at the legendary CBGBs in New York City. In more recent years, we have moved the Royal Flush events to such venues as the Bowery Ballroom in NYC and Brooklyn’s the Warsaw and Public Assembly. We have booked bands such as Clutch, Fiend Without a Face, Satanicide, Beatallica, The Giraffes, Year Long Disaster and The Spicy Rizzaks all to perform live. In 2008, Royal Flush teamed up with the Toy Tokyo art gallery to host “Vicious Intent,” a rock poster exhibit that featured over 20 of the top underground artists from around the world. In 2009, Royal Flush teamed up with the YIVO Institute for Jewish Studies to create a multi-week lecture series with several comic book icons such as Al Jaffee, Jules Feiffer and Harvey Pekar and was moderated by comic historian Danny Fingeroth. In 2010, Royal Flush teamed up with the Kaiju Big Battel pro-wrestling league to stage a massive release party/concert and wrestling spectacle at the Warsaw in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Most recently, Royal Flush staged a book signing, in conjunction with Roadrunner Records with famed shock-rocker, Rob Zombie at NYC’s leading comic book store, Forbidden Planet. Fans were able to meet Zombie and purchase Royal Flush Magazine and a deluxe edition of his latest record at the signing.
