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?

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?

Meet the Bands: The I Want You

Earlier this year, the I Want You made the Improper Bostonian’s Loud and Clear list of their favorite local acts.

They’re one of our favorites, too.  They even decked out in Teen Beat t-shirts at last year’s Crash Safely because they were sharing a bill with Cotton Candy.

Top Notch and First Rate.

 


We’re excited to have them back, especially during  Pete Hayes‘ night!

0806Feat_TheIWantYouPC1

Even more of a reason to love them? They’re new single! Produced by fellow Crash Safely participant Pete Weiss, they’ve decided to donate all money that comes in through Christmas 2014 for the single to Crash Safely! Pay what you want for your copy and it will all go to help patients with MS and support research to help end MS, too.

Catch them on Night 1 of Crash Safely with that warm, fuzzy feeling of having already given to a great cause twice over!
