The Figgs


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.

So, while we won’t be seeing you for Crash Safely this year,  come see us! I think we’ve got a wide variety of options to choose from- see you soon!

Night 1 was amazing!

We’re still going through the fancy, fancy photos from the night (as we know our pals Steve Latham and Eric Law caught some great pics!), but we just could not wait to share our cell phone snapped photos with everyone.  Did you take pics at the show?  Share ’em with us on Facebook

or tag your Instagram with #crashsafely and we’ll share!

In the meantime, check out these pics taken by the Midway staff:

Are you ready for Night Two?

 

 

 


Getting ready for Saturday!

We always have fun at the Midway, and Saturday promises to be no exception! Maybe you heard Watts and The I Want You on Boston Emissions.  Maybe you heard Gene Dante and Mark Damon on Bay State Rock.  Maybe you’ve been eagerly awaiting the full length version of Badger the Figgs have just released on limited edition vinyl.

Maybe having all of that talent on one show just isn’t enough.  Maybe you need to win things.  Things like a big pile of Redbox gift cards. Tickets for the NY Skyride. Bowling for (up to) 6 people at Kings (that includes shoe rentals, by the way). 5 pounds of whole bean Death Wish Coffee, plus ground coffee, plus a cool t shirt, mug and Death Wish swag. A Newbury Comics gift certificate. A Mary Kay gift certificate. A signed photo of big Vince Wilfork from the Patriots.

Feeling more like an auction? We’ve got that, too.  Auctions for studio time. A Keurig brewer + case of coffee, a dinner cruise on Boston harbor with a hotel room. A 5 day/4 night Cancun vacation. A Gibson Les Paul Future Tribute.

 

Plus, we’ll have rare Figgs merch, a chance for you to win the handwritten lyric sheet to Pete Hayes’ “The Bar”  and freebies!

And all of the money raised at the show goes to the National MS Society!!

The cost of admission to all of this? $10.00.  Seriously!  Will we see you Saturday?
