Sub-Urban Brands, Inc. (OTCBB:SUUB), a multi-brand apparel company pursuing high-margin revenue growth in the global fashion industry, has announced the first annual Get Cocky Awards nominees, including electroclash entertainment pioneers Fischerspooner, luminary Kenzo Minami and fine artist Hernan Bas. The event, sponsored by Sub-Urban's Mash Culture Lab(TM) (MCL), will be held between 8 pm and midnight on the top floor of 7 World Trade Center on July 27, 2006.
"Our nominees directly influence New York City's fashion and culture, and by extension, the world's," said Joseph Shortal, Chief Executive Officer of Sub-Urban Brands. "We knew we had a runaway success for our Get Cocky Awards when we were inundated with nomination requests."
Nominees have been placed in five distinct categories: Entertainment, Luminaries, Film, Art, and Media. For example, DJ Ghostface Killah, of New York City underground fame, has been nominated for the Entertainment category. The Luminaries category includes media artist and product designer Kenzo Minami who has been commissioned by Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Converse, Earnest Sewn, Hankyu, Clubking, and Kidrobot among many others. The winner from each category will design a limited edition T-shirt from MCL(TM) apparel, whose proceeds will go directly to the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's various programs.

The Cocky Awards were organized by AGW, Sub-Urban's New York-based event marketing agency, to celebrate individuals who encompass lower Manhattan's diverse culture and influence in the arts, entertainment, media and film. The awards show owes its namesake to the signature rooster logo made popular by the Company's Whiteboy(R) brand. Sub-Urban's rooster logo has also been adopted by the event sponsor MCL(TM).
Sub-Urban has also confirmed that Mickey Boardman from Paper Magazine will host the Cocky Awards along with Sarah Sophie Flicker who was voted one of New York Magazine's Most Beautiful New Yorkers in 2005. Live entertainment will be performed by Domino, to be followed by DJ Mark Ronson leading the after show dance party.
Sub-Urban's Mash Culture Lab(TM), the Cocky Award's marquee sponsor, is a brand concept derived from today's most significant cultural youth movement. According to Wired Magazine, an influential periodical of current culture, Mash Culture is the result of a multitude of technological innovations that allow today's youth to combine previously disparate cultural movements like Hip Hop and Rock to create unique sounds, videos, automobiles and even customized clothing. Sub-Urban has positioned Mash Culture Lab(TM) on the cutting-edge of that movement, as it executes yet another strategic initiative that targets mainstream youth.
