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

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!

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!

(your band here)

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!

Meet the Studios: Q Division

Ah, Q!

No, not this one.

No, not this one.

Q Division has become a record label, second home and annual BBQ yard sale funfest host over the years.  The Mayor of Q is even a Maybe Sump’ms team member! Encourage his athleticism by donating to him, and we’ll send you photographic evidence that he did indeed cross the finish line!

Q’s been part of Crash Safely right from the start, and they’re offering up a day in Studio B with Ed Valauskas! Ed’s also played Crash Safely with the Gentlemen!

Meet the Studios: Zippah

Every year at Crash Safely, we have a silent auction for studio time with some of our favorite folks in town.   This year, we’d like to introduce to you each of the studios, so you can plan the recording of your masterpiece(s).

 

First up: It’s Zippah! You may be familiar with their Tuesday Night Recording Club, or maybe you’ve seen Brian or Annie playing around town in The Sheila Divine or The Field Effect.  Spend a day with Brian at Zippah working on whatever recording project you wish.  He means it, too: TRiPLE THiCK used the day to record a full length, as well as sneak me in to shoot some video.

The studio silent auction will be live right before the first show on 9/27.  We’ll update everything here so that you never miss your chance to win!
