The air was warm, the cider (thanks Rekorderlig USA!) chilled, and the crowd abuzz in anticipation for our night with Delicate Steve!
Our Orchard Street Gallery & Music Space filled up to rock out, with the New Jersey native known as Steve Marion—the multi-instrumentalist who leads the band of the same name. With fans no more than two feet away, it was a "melting of the minds"—an eclectic mix of rhythm, rock, and pop, that had the crowd jiving and grooving through their hour-long set! Having toured with Australian band Tame Impala across massive venues and fresh off a recent headlining tour, it was an honor to have Delicate Steve join us for an intimate evening of music and good vibes.
Thank you's all around to Delicate Steve for an amazing show, We Are Listen, and Rekorderlig USA, for an awesome Thursday night in the LES!Catch our next MOSCOT Music show, June 18th! For more news, visit facebook.com/moscotmusic.
This summer, we're basking in bohemian glamour with our NEW 2015 MOSCOT Sun Collection!
Combining our classic shapes with eclectic styles that defined the 1970s, our newest Collection is a kaleidoscope of hippie bling, and understated glitz that is undeniably summer, and unmistakably MOSCOT. Layering an ethereal matte color palette of muted earth tones with coordinated metals, The CONRAD, EVERET, FAYE, and MAJOR remain timeless, while sporting a sophisticated disco vibe. Disco meets boho has never been so chic!
Not resting on their looks alone, these newest styles also feature the latest optical lens technology — true polarized gradient sun lenses with a multilayered back surface coating for an anti-reflective, no glare effect, and the ultimate UVA/UVB protection for maximum sun protection and clear vision. Who says protection can't be fun?
Meet our newest Sun Collection below and online:
The CONRAD – The CONRAD is cool and confident, a consummate classic. Charged with luxurious details, but grounded with a refined shape, this frame is flawlessly formal, and easy on the eyes. Disco meets boho has never been so chic. Available in Matte Crystal, Matte Green, Matte Grey, and Matte Navy with exposed metal layered between block acetate with diamond shaped rivets on the front, metal inlays on the temples, a key hole bridge, and real five barrel hinges.
The EVERET – Perfectly poised to beat the heat, The EVERET will keep you looking cool as the temperature rises this summer. Dramatic, sleek, sexy, and versatile, this instant outfit energizer has all the oomph you need in a sunglass. Available in Matte Crystal, Matte Green, Matte Grey, and Matte Navy with exposed metal layered between block acetate with three dot rivets on the front, metal inlays on the temples, a saddle bridge, and real seven barrel hinges.
The FAYE – Perfectly round and pertly playful, The FAYE is a disco sharp shooter. This foxy frame incorporates the best of summer into one sexy sunglass. Bring on the sun and fun! Available in Matte Crystal, Matte Green, Matte Grey, and Matte Navy with exposed metal layered between block acetate with two dot rivets on the front, metal inlays on the temples, a saddle bridge, and real five barrel hinges.
The MAJOR – The MAJOR is an oversized, modified aviator, with a double bar, and a sleek physique. Whether you are cooling out at a concert, or maxing on a motorcycle, The MAJOR will keep you moving and grooving all summer long. Available in Matte Crystal, Matte Green, Matte Grey, and Matte Navy, a combination metal acetate frame with metal inlays on the temples, a saddle bridge, and real seven barrel hinges.
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!

One night, two charitable foundations, and three musicians to bring it all back to the LES for a night to remember.
The long awaited performance by Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, lead vocalist and co-founder of the Grammy winning hip-hop group The Roots, finally came last night and let's just say, it was worth the wait! Our cozy Orchard Street Gallery & Music Space was packed with fans and friends of the band and brand, all for two awesome causes — the GrassROOTS Community Foundation and The MOSCOT Mobileyes. With a strong beat by Jeremy Ellis, Ray Angry on keys, and Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter leading the night, we couldn't be more thankful for the amazing turnout and the generosity of all. On behalf of both charities, THANK YOU!Interested in learning more about the charities involved? Visit GrassROOTS Community Foundation and MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation online for more information. In the meantime, our year-long birthday celebration continues with The Special Edition GRUNYA in Black Tortoise for Tariq Trotter, co-designed by the man himself!
