With the line starting at 5PM and the night still young, The Griswolds kicked off MOSCOT Music's spring showcase, with an incredible acoustic set last night!
Currently on tour since the release of their first album last year, Be Impressive, the foursome from Down Under made a super special stop to our Orchard Street Gallery & Music Space! For those waiting in said line, The Griswolds did not disappoint, performing an intimate, unplugged set, that had many of us calling for more! Having gained increased momentum (they have two sold out shows this week at Terminal 5!!!), they guys felt right at home with their fans in an environment like no other. Pretty cool stuff for a Sunday night, if you ask us!
A BIG thank you to The Griswolds, for a night of awesome music, vibes, and excellent company; their label, Wind-Up Records, for the opportunity; and to the many fans who came out!Stay tuned for our next MOSCOT Music event in May!

Extra! Extra! The MOSCOT family secret, is not so secret! Available again for the first time since the 1950s, Sol's Secret Sauce is named for (you guessed it...) Grandpa Sol, who concocted the superior lens cleaner while working behind the counter at MOSCOT's Orchard Street Shop back in the day.
Used behind-the-scenes in MOSCOT Shops for the past 60 plus years, fans worldwide can now enjoy squeaky clean lenses using this safe, super effective secret solution that cleans and shines without damaging the finish, or coating of the lens.
Custom blended and bottled right on premise at our Orchard Street Shop, Sol's Secret Sauce is sold in a travel-friendly, one-fluid ounce spray bottle, and comes with its own special chamois. The whole shebang comes housed in a vegan leather carrying pouch...the leather may be faux, but Sol's Secret Sauce is the real deal.Available in all MOSCOT NYC Shops and online at moscot.com!

In true MOSCOT style, we decorated The Jane Hotel's ballroom to reflect the many years and decades of our family history, showcasing our favorite historical photos, a larger than life Great Grandpa Hyman, and our iconic Mannequin Heads, while keeping the vibe familial and cozy.
