More things to win at Crash Safely this year!

Normally, around this time, we’re already busy telling you who’s playing Crash Safely, as well as where  and when those shows are happening.  We want to make our 5th anniversary special, though, so we’re keeping a tight lid on who’s involved this year for a little while longer.

Oh, that's a bit harsh.

Oh, that’s a bit harsh.

That said, we’ve already heard from some of our donors regard raffle and silent auction prizes!  Get a peek at who’s already donated prizes  and make your plans for how you’ll win them this fall.

We’re also going through some photos from all of the past shows to share with everyone.  Did you happen to take photos at any of them and want to share with us? Get in touch and we’ll be happy to share your amazing photography/videography with the universe! We have very photogenic bands at these shows, after all….
