The Maybe Sump’ms already rode around NYC last weekend, but you can still donate! In fact, we could really use the help! Keep in mind that 100% of the proceeds from Crash Safely also go to same pool and help fund crucial research into MS, patient assistance programs and fellowships for MS specialists.
In fact, ECTRIMS (the European Committee for Treatment and Research In Multiple Sclerosis) just ended and highlighted some major research breakthroughs, including:
“NEDA”- No Evidence of Disease Activity as a standard of care for people with relapsing forms of MS (This has NEVER been an option before!)
We’ll be guests on Skybar Lusardi‘s show on WMFO this Tuesday at 8pm! He’ll be spinning tunes by all of the bands involved in Crash Safely, and Amanda will be on hand with some tracks and all of the information about both nights (including the proper ways to sway the raffle in your favor).
Just don’t get grounded throwing lightswitch raves beforehand.
Do we really have to introduce, you, oh Boston music lover, to Unnatural Axe? Maybe this will jog your memory:
Maybe Cheetah Chrome should introduce you.
That’s a lot of black and white, now.

The Axe remain an amazing punk band that you are required to state that you’ve seen at least once in your lifetime. They’re giving you a chance to up your punk cred on 10/23, with Township, Watts and Fireking at the Middle East Upstairs.
Think you’ll catch ’em next time? You’ll be waiting- this is their ONLY area show this year.
Watts have been super busy AGAIN! In case you’ve missed it, they’ve just come back from New York, after a quick diversion into Portland (ME, not OR). They’ll be helping fellow Crash Safely band Fireking celebrate their vinyl release soon, too!

Crash Safely will be your chance to get up close and personal with the band before they are called away to another far-flung city in need of their rock services. (Aren’t ALL cities in need of Watts, really?)
Many of the bands who play Crash Safely are ultra, mega busy. However, our local garage rock heroes, Muck and the Mires, will be coming to Crash Safely from from a very busy schedule overseas….
In case you didn’t know.
If you follow them on Facebook, you’ll already know about the wondrous inventions they have discovered (spiral escalators!). You’ll also know that they’ve been around the world, spreading their cool stage clothes and amazing garage rock sound. If you’re new to the world of Muck, here’s a great introduction:
Muck graces the Midway stage on 10/17, with The Dents, The Sprained Ankles, Gymnasium and The Phil Aiken Army! Grab your tickets for what’s sure to be a mucky great time!
