Meet the Author

The MisShapes are Greg Krelenstein (25), Leigh Lezark (21), and Geordon Nicol (21), the promoters and DJs behind an eponymous Saturday night party as well as fashion -and music-world staples in their own right. The MisShapes phenomenon began in February 2004 when the club night, which many now consider the best in hipster Manhattan, opened its doors for the first time. It's a teenage rock'n'roll dance party for kids in their twenties, and it's been going strong ever since, capturing a raucous, raw spirit that is the ruling aesthetic for today's creative types. The trio has been heralded in publications ranging from People to Paper, Nylon to The New York Times. Blender had them on their Hot 100 list and Leigh Lezark was one of New York magazine's "Most Influential New Yorkers" in 2006 as well as one of Spin magazine's "Top 25 Under 25."
