We’re getting the last bits ready for tonight!
Amazing music from The Phil Aiken Army, The Dents, Muck and the Mires and The Sprained Ankles…
Plus, the chance to win:
Two tickets to ANY ArtsEmerson performance in the 2015-2016 season!
A specially selected bangle set from ALEX AND ANI / CHARITY BY DESIGN!
Two chances to win 6 lbs of whole bean coffee from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, including a specially selected set by Mike Oliver!
An after work pool party for 20 people, snacks included at Jillian’s Boston!
We’ll see you at the Midway tonight!!
Let’s just start this out with Tankenstein:
Yes, that’s a kazoo. Yes, that’s a punk band.
Goofy, garage, punk. Guaranteed good time. How can you NOT love a song about a vampire girlfriend?
In fact, Amanda decided to wear her old school Rowdy Roddy Piper T shirt to the first night of Crash Safely because the Ankles are playing. One-up her and wear your Macho Man Randy Savage gear!
Who are The Dents? Well, seeing as you asked:
Jen D’Angora (aka Jenny Dee), Vocals and Guitar. Michelle Paulhus, Vocals and Bass. Craig Adams, Guitar. Kevin Pickering, Drums.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way…
What do they sound like?
We’ll let the music do the talking…. here’s “Better Off”:
They’re heading to the Midway on 10/17 with the Sprained Ankles, Muck and the Mires and the Phil Aiken Army! You don’t wanna miss this lineup!
Tickets $10, 21+.
We’ll be guests on Skybar Lusardi‘s show on WMFO this Tuesday at 8pm! He’ll be spinning tunes by all of the bands involved in Crash Safely, and Amanda will be on hand with some tracks and all of the information about both nights (including the proper ways to sway the raffle in your favor).
Listen in at 91.5 FM or online!
Unfortunately, Gymnasium have had to drop off the October 17 bill at the Midway Cafe as their drummer Jonathan was in an accident. We hope he gets better soon!!!
The other members of Gymnasium will still be attending the show and you may even get Rod to sing you something accapella if you buy him a beer first. (Don’t quote us on that.)
New set times and order are as follows:
9:00 Pm – Doors
9:15 PM – The Phil Aiken Army
10:15 PM – Muck & The Mires
11:15 PM – The Dents
12:15 AM – The Sprained Ankles
Thanks everyone and we wish Jonathan a speedy recovery!
Do we really have to introduce, you, oh Boston music lover, to Unnatural Axe? Maybe this will jog your memory:
Maybe Cheetah Chrome should introduce you.
That’s a lot of black and white, now.
The Axe remain an amazing punk band that you are required to state that you’ve seen at least once in your lifetime. They’re giving you a chance to up your punk cred on 10/23, with Township, Watts and Fireking at the Middle East Upstairs.
Think you’ll catch ’em next time? You’ll be waiting- this is their ONLY area show this year.
Bring yer whole guild!
Watts have been super busy AGAIN! In case you’ve missed it, they’ve just come back from New York, after a quick diversion into Portland (ME, not OR). They’ll be helping fellow Crash Safely band Fireking celebrate their vinyl release soon, too!
Crash Safely will be your chance to get up close and personal with the band before they are called away to another far-flung city in need of their rock services. (Aren’t ALL cities in need of Watts, really?)
Grab your tickets to 10/23 here, and remember- you can also enter to win lots of goodies at our raffles! See you at the Middle East!
