Good luck!  We can’t wait to hear your new songs!!!

Night 1 was amazing!

We’re still going through the fancy, fancy photos from the night (as we know our pals Steve Latham and Eric Law caught some great pics!), but we just could not wait to share our cell phone snapped photos with everyone.  Did you take pics at the show?  Share ‘em with us on Facebook

or tag your Instagram with #crashsafely and we’ll share!

In the meantime, check out these pics taken by the Midway staff:

Are you ready for Night Two?

Thank you!

We want to give a special shout-out to Biogen, for their support of Crash Safely this year!  To be fair, they’ve been integral from the beginning of the shows, but in an indirect way.  Medications they make have made a huge difference for a few of us involved and we are thrilled to have them on board this year!

Even more?

We’re not lying about new prizes coming in every day!  Today, in fact, we received 4!

From Melissa Winter Weiss, we have this cool set:

From Pete Weiss, a new series of Record Store photos (including some of the late, great Looney Tunes Records!)

Now that you’ve got some art to show off, you might want to take a trip to see some other types!  We’ve also got two tickets to the ICA Boston  waiting for you!

You’ll want to look your best for these, right? Well, we’ve got something for you there as well!  a $25.00 gift certificate for Mary Kay, which comes with a personal consultation!

Whew!  Check the event listings on the Facebook page to find out which shows will have these awesome new things!

Getting ready for Saturday!

composite_14106176694131

We always have fun at the Midway, and Saturday promises to be no exception! Maybe you heard Watts and The I Want You on Boston Emissions.  Maybe you heard Gene Dante and Mark Damon on Bay State Rock.  Maybe you’ve been eagerly awaiting the full length version of Badger the Figgs have just released on limited edition vinyl.

Maybe having all of that talent on one show just isn’t enough.  Maybe you need to win things.  Things like a big pile of Redbox gift cards. Tickets for the NY Skyride. Bowling for (up to) 6 people at Kings (that includes shoe rentals, by the way). 5 pounds of whole bean Death Wish Coffee, plus ground coffee, plus a cool t shirt, mug and Death Wish swag. A Newbury Comics gift certificate. A Mary Kay gift certificate. A signed photo of big Vince Wilfork from the Patriots.

Feeling more like an auction? We’ve got that, too.  Auctions for studio time. A Keurig brewer + case of coffee, a dinner cruise on Boston harbor with a hotel room. A 5 day/4 night Cancun vacation. A Gibson Les Paul Future Tribute.

Plus, we’ll have rare Figgs merch, a chance for you to win the handwritten lyric sheet to Pete Hayes’ “The Bar”  and freebies!

And all of the money raised at the show goes to the National MS Society!!

The cost of admission to all of this? $10.00.  Seriously!  Will we see you Saturday?

Live on WAAF!

We had a great time last night on WAAF! Thanks to Carmeltia and her crew for having us on!  JustBill came along with us and took some great shots of Gene and Mark in the studio (that’s Amanda in the background of Mark’s photo, wearing the CT scan looking shirt).

 

We’ve added the songs they performed last night to the SoundCloud playlist!  Give ‘em a listen and get excited for Saturday night!

Gene Dante WAAF 2014Mark Damon WAAF 2014

Also… will there be a Duckbills reunion on 9/27?

Prize updates!

As you may be aware, we’ve got a set of Alex and Ani bangles to win on 10/17.  Here’s the exclusive set they’ve sent us!

2014-09-17 16.59.44

awww!

The very same day that this arrived, we heard from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We were hoping they were making us voting members so we could add some of our favorites to the hall of fame.  That didn’t happen (yet),  but they did send us two tickets to admission that never expire!  You’ll be able to vie for those only on 10/10!

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

We wonder if they’ll take your U2 “issue”…

We also found out that today is Brian Charles‘ birthday!  We think you can celebrate by bidding to win some studio time with him at Zippah to do as you please!

Also, here’s another reminder that we’re hitting the airwaves Sunday night at midnight (ok, so that’s technically Monday, for all you sticklers), visiting Carmelita on Bay State Rock with Gene Dante and Mark Damon performing live in the studio!

Listen in and find out more details on the shows  through TuneIn, stream from your computer, or ye olde fashioned actual radio (99.7/107.3)!

Les Maybe Sump’ms

The Maybe Sump’ms have a French Connection!

french-beret-black-n

mais oui!

The Maybe Sump’ms ride in the BikeMS NYC event every year, but this year, we’re going international! A team of bikers will be doing the same 30 mile bike ride…in Paris!

 “Les Maybe Sump’ms” is a team of bikers that will be participating in Paris as we take off from the West Side piers on October 5th. Make sure to tune in. It’ll be a bit like Phil Collins in Live Aid!

queenbikes

It won’t look a thing like this.

Last year, the Maybe Sump’ms raised over twenty-three thousand dollars for The National MS Society. We could not have done that without friends like you! 2014 aims to be even better.
As many of you know, both Pete and Amanda were diagnosed about 6 years ago with MS. Both have a pretty mild (relatively speaking) disease and decided to get involved with BikeMS to help other patients who aren’t as fortunate. Think about donating, or join us in the ride!

Even a five dollar donation can mean a lot to someone who can’t  afford a cane, or physical therapy payments.  All donation are receipted and tax deductible.

Another way you can donate is to attend  Crash Safely! All proceeds from the three nights go to the National MS Society, and that includes not only the ticket sales, but the raffle and silent auction money as well.

Night 1: 9/27  Hosted by Pete Hayes, featuring The Figgs, Watts, Gene Dante and the Future Starlets, The I Want You and As the Sparrow

Night 2: 10/10 Hosted by Cotton Candy, featuring Petty Morals, Gymnasium, My Own Worst Enemy and Tsunami of Sound

Night 3: 10/17 Hosted by D-Tension and Jake Jampel, featuring Township, White Dynomite, The Field Effect, Triple Thick and Animal Hospital

Can’t attend the shows? The silent auctions are online, and you don’t have to be present at the shows to win.
