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

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?

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)!

Meet the Studios: Woolly Mammoth Sound

Chances are good that you know someone who’s recorded at Woolly Mammoth Sound. Led by Neighborhoods singer and guitarist and sometimes Replacement Dave Minehan, Woolly’s been a welcoming place for all since its early days in the heart of the Fens.

Dave-M-2

Here’s your chance to add to Woolly’s impressive roster of clients and an opportunity to ask Dave if he hung out more with Tommy Stinson or Paul Westerberg at Boston Calling.

Bid on 4 hours of studio time with Dave at Woolly and remember to share any tasty bits of ‘Mats gossip with the rest of us, OK?

All the prizes!

No, not this one.
