It was a truly special evening of music last night when Matt Heafy, frontman for Trivium, performed a special one night only acoustic to benefit The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation, moscotmobileyes.com. Hosted by MOSCOT Music and Roadrunner Records, Matt wowed the crowd with a set list that included Trivium songs and covers. In between songs, Matt interacted with fans answering questions and sharing stories about being on the road, how he preps for shows, and what he'd do if he weren't a musician (HINT: food!). 
 


After the show, guests headed upstairs to shop, mingle and enjoy beer from Brooklyn Brewery, and delicious cocktails courtesy of Drambuie. 



A HUGE thank you to Matt Heafy and Roadrunner records for an amazing evening!


Please stay tuned to the MOSCOT Facebook page for information on upcoming MOSCOT MUSIC events.

Introducing Bahareh!

What is your position at MOSCOT? 
I am the PR Manager at MOSCOT. (Want to feature MOSCOT? Hint, hint.)

How long have you worked for MOSCOT? 
A year and a half.

What is your favorite thing about working for MOSCOT?
I am constantly learning new things, have met tons of interesting people, and get to be creative every day! AND, MOSCOT is responsible for making my dream (fear) of singing in front of a crowd a reality! What other job has an in-house band (The MOSCOT All Stars) that demands you sing your favorite 80's song while all of your friends and colleagues cheer you on, you ask? That's right — this job! 

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?
I didn't get the nickname Dancing Bears for nothing. I love going to dance class, concerts, yoga, and the "occasional" night on the town. 

What is your favorite MOSCOT frame and which one do you wear? 
It's so hard to choose, but I am really loving my new NIGEL in Olive Stripe, and I have always loved my Cranberry DREW.

Where would you take your favorite MOSCOT Sun on vacation?
Well, I already took The DREW to Hawaii…so this summer I'm taking The CAMERON to California.

The AVERY is for the super smart professor who happens to be hot enough to distract from his or her own lecture.

Clean and tailored, The HENRY is based on The LEMTOSH silhouette, but with a thinner gauge — think LEMTOSH...minus a few pounds.

The HESH. This big, full, purely rectangular frame is contemporary yet refined. It's the ideal frame for the consummate gentleman.

The LYNNIE. This sleek frame is seductive and sophisticated with a narrow silhouette and a slight upsweep across the brow (take note: upsweep = mini "eyelift").

The MAXWELL is a large, thick, rectangular frame reminiscent of the age of neon and leg warmers. That's right people — the 80s are back.

The YALE. With this full cut frame, you'll be the BMOC (that's big man on campus, but you already knew that). 

This frame will help you achieve that serious and studious, yet stylish look that screams, "Smart, yes; boring, not!" The GLENN, A favorite of Dr. Moscot.

The CHARLA. This delicate cat eye frame is for the woman who's equally comfortable scouring the flea market for vintage couture as she is scouring the skies for Cassiopeia.
 

 

Just like that LBD your best friend loves to borrow, but always “forgets” to return, The LUCY is sexy, alluring, and flattering, yet classic and simple (and with a slight cat eye upsweep, slimming too — yay!).
 
Put on your pleated pants, polo shirts, and penny loafers…The SPENCER will inspire you to pop your collar and declare the return of the Prepster. Tennis anyone?

The stainless steel GARRETT is strongly built, comfortable, and dependable, like a full-size luxury car, but with clean, elegant lines, like a ballet dancer. So basically The GARRETT is like Baryshnikov in a Cadillac, but with prescription lenses.

Pop on The PARSON and say adios to pick up lines, speechwriters, and publicists. This handsome, clever frame says it all for you…whether you’re the strong silent type, or just at a loss for words.
 

 

Slip on The BRETT and you’ll be transported back to the days when disco balls and leisure suits ruled the dance floor. Trust us...you’ll feel tha funk. Can you dig?

This avuncular frame is a timeless classic — comfortable, conservative, dependable, and good looking, just like our Uncle Danny, for whom the frame is named. An evolution of The NEBB, The DANNEE looks smart on both uncles and aunts.

The EMILE was made for folks who wear their glasses, not the other way around. Great with a classic suit or an LBD (...little black dress).

The FIONAH’s thick temple and hint of Harlequin adds a little sumthin sumthin to your wardrobe that makes getting dressed each day just a little bit more fun.

 

Love The NEBB? Then you’ll love The NIGEL. It’s debonair, intelligent, and easy on the eyes to boot — just like the doctor your mom keeps trying to set you up with.

With its browline shape, The DIEDRE is 1950s all the way. But leave your penny loafers and cardigans at home — this look is Jayne Mansfield, not Dorris Day. Sorry, Dorris Day.

Strawberry fields and yellow submarines your thing? Slip on The SIDNEY and you’ll be transported back to the days of peace, love and bell bottoms…only with better hair.

Don’t let this clean, simple, seemingly innocent frame fool you — with its acetate front and intricately etched titanium temples (a first for MOSCOT), The OREN should really be called Bond…James Bond.


 

We're super excited to introduce you to The LUCY, OREN, NIGEL, SPENCER, GARRETT, DIEDRE, SIDNEY and PARSON, our newest MOSCOT Spirit styles!

Designed in-house by The MOSCOT team, our newest MOSCOT Spirits combine key elements of The Originals with influences from the most popular frame styles from the 1950s through the 1980s. And if you're a regular visitor to our NYC shops...you may just recognize a few of the models in our new Spirit campaign! 

The new styles are now available EXCLUSIVELY at our MOSCOT NYC shops and on moscot.com. If you happen to be in NYC, stop by and say enchanté to the new frames and see the campaign in person!

118 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002 (NE Corner of Orchard & Delancey Streets)
 

K.Flay’s new EP, Eyes Shut, is a response to apathy. Thematically, the disc’s five tracks offer a dialogue about what it means to care—and not care—in the twenty-something years. K.Flay, the moniker for San Francisco-based musician Kristine Flaherty, reacts to this generational indifference musically. Her spitfire rhymes and distorted indie-electro production are infused with unabashed passion and thoughtful concern. Although Flaherty may write about apathy, she’s anything but apathetic She’s opened for the likes of Passion Pit and 3OH!3, was part of San Francisco’s 2011 Outside Lands Arts & Music Festival lineup, and has been sharpening her production skills by remixing other artists, including Beastie Boys, Young the Giant, Walk the Moon, and Oh Land.

Andy Suzuki & The Method are proving that there is still songwriting and soul in pop music. The band’s eclectic instrumentation, featuring electric violin, djembe, and piano, pushes the boundaries of the acoustic singer-songwriter genre and has been garnering rave reviews across the country. NPR declared that “Andy Suzuki...is blessed with a velvet voice,” and Time Out New York praised the band’s “deadly way with melody.” In 2011, WNYC Public Radio named Andy Suzuki & The Method the #1 band in Manhattan in their annual Battle Of The Boroughs competition, featuring the band in two show-stopping performances at WNYC’s Greene Space. TheUrbanDaily.com recently featured Andy Suzuki & The Method in their ‘Top 25 Artists That Need To Be Heard in 2012’, asserting that the band’s latest release is proof that “there is still soul in music.”
