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?

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!

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!

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!

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!

Meet the Bands: As The Sparrow

What happens when you mix folk, swing, rock and big band?  As the Sparrow knows!

They’re bringing their unique blend of sounds to Crash Safely on night one this year, and maybe we can play this great Clue-themed music video there!

Who knew they had a Tim Curry lookalike in their band?

They’re on WMFO tonight at 10 pm!
