A little too quiet..

It’s been fairly quiet here at Crash Safely this year, if you haven’t noticed.  So what gives?

A few things, actually.  There are really only two people behind the scenes at CS, and we’ve been doing it for five straight years.  I’ve pretty much given up my birthday for that long, so the selfish part of me would like it back (thank you very much).

Maybe not quite like this.

Maybe not quite like this.

The other thing is that I have been editing videos for the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Casual Fridays series, and the first one happens to fall on a night I would usually book for Crash Safely. I essentially double booked myself, six months in advance.

 

By the way, you should totally go to Casual Fridays- ticket prices are reduced, there’s free food before and after, and you can mingle with orchestra members. If you sit in the “tablet” seating, you can see my work.  (You can subscribe to Casual Fridays, too!)

While I’m doing that, the Night Ridah has been called back into drumming duty with Shiny Beasts. They’re playing a ton lately, but if you haven’t seen them yet, here’s a taste:

 

Also, The Figgs are on tour! With mighty team captain Pete Hayes out with the Figgs, the Maybe Sump’ms won’t have enough time to train for the ride, let alone get the shows together.

Meet the Bands: Pete Donnelly

It’s strange how things work out.  The Figgs have a  two thirds majority of Petes.
Those Petes are the same Petes headlining the first night of Crash Safely this year.

They'd probably agree with this

Not these Petes, but they’d probably agree.

Pete-Donnelly

Pete D is not only the bassist in the Figgs, but a session musician (playing with the likes of Shelby Lynne and Lauren Hill), former NRBQ member, engineer and producer.  Someday, we’ll figure out how he manages to sneak sleep into his schedule! Pete will be in town at the Midway on August 25th before returning with Pete Hayes (and rumor has it, John Powhida).  Check out his cool music video for “Can’t Talk at All” below, and don’t forget to grab tickets to 9/27’s show!
