What a weekend!

[flagallery gid=3 name=Gallery]

 

Wow!
I’m still recovering from this weekend! Check out just a few of the photos Mick Murray took both nights! There are a TON more, and a bunch from other photographers as well!

Our silent auction for studio time ended on Sunday at 8pm and the winners have all been notified.  In case you’re wondering who to get friendly with really quickly, it’s:

Four hours at Woolly Mammoth Studio with Dave Minehan

Mike Oliver, ‘Hoods fan extraordinaire, won the Woolly time.

A Day in Studio B at Q Division with Ed Valauskas
AND
Two songs mastered at Peerless with Jeff Lipton

Well planned bidding earned Ken Rothman and his band studio time, not only at Q Division but at Peerless as well!

A Day at Zippah with Brian Charles

Frank D’Urso(aka FrankD from the Noise Board) clicked away with Zippah time!

 

Thanks to all of the bands, the Davis Square Theatre and all of the folks who donated raffle and silent auction items!
Thanks to all of the fans who came out, and to new friends met both nights!

MS doesn’t rest, so neither do we.  The ride is 10/21 and next year’s shows are already being planned.

Tomorrow and today 1

Did you make it out to Crash Safely last night?

If you did…why are you awake? I left before a bunch of folks at 2am. Put your smart phone down and go back to sleep!

We had so much fun last night, I can’t even begin to describe it!  Photos are forthcoming (we had many talented photogs running around last night), but know that EVERYONE had an amazing time!

If you’ve never seen the Phil Aiken Army, you need to remedy that ASAP.  They are a phenomenal bunch!

You also owe it to yourself to see the Dirty Truckers more often, and you need to check out the Unholy III. The Deelinquents seem to get more and more amazing every night as well. As for the Gents… I can’t even begin to describe the power they brought to the stage- Ducky Carlisle is a drumming master.

So, how will tonight go?  Well, check out what Lord Bendover had to say to the Globe.

Many thanks to all of the bands who make Crash Safely the amazing set of shows that it is!

We’ll see you tonight!!!

 


Getting ready for Night #1!

We’re getting ready for the first night of Crash Safely!

Please check out these great write ups from our friends at Ryan’s Smashing Life , the Boston Herald and Boston Band Crush.

We’ll see you all tonight. As a bonus, tonight you’ll have the chance to win Jodi’ Moore’s lovely chain maille bracelet Friday instead of Saturday. On top of the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame tickets, Friday’s got more exclusive stuff to win!

 


Only hours left!

Really, there are only hours left until Crash Safely starts up.

Who are you most excited to see? The Gentlemen with Ducky Carlisle? The Upper Crust? The Unholy III? Sidewalk Driver? Will John Powhida take the stage?  How about the Night Ridah?

Who will win the passes to the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame?  The Coach Poppy Flower gift set?
The recording studio auctions?

With so much going on behind the scenes right now, both the Night Ridah and I have been pretty quiet, blog-wise.

Now, the fun begins! The case and crew are getting ready to fill the Davis Square Theatre this Friday and Saturday- will we see you there as well?


Getting ready…

We’ve been busy behind the scenes- coordinating equipment, load in times and press related talks.

During this time, an email appeared from Cleveland. Crash Safely was granted a pair of tickets to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum!

You’ll have to get yourself there (yes, I did try to get airfare as a raffle item. Obviously it didn’t pan out). It’s a great excuse to go on a trip, though.  The tickets do not expire.  The only restriction is that they won’t work during a special event, so you won’t be crashing next year’s induction ceremony using these.

You can also pretend to be in Spinal Tap, which was my first reaction:

 

Also, I was able to extend the silent auction that’s currently running online until 8pm EST on 9/30. Studio time is still at quite a bargain right now, so get clickin’ and you can make your masterpiece without having to use Kickstarter.

You’ll also be able to purchase the new Unholy III CD on Friday as well.

 

These are gonna be big!  Make sure you’ve got your tickets!
