Meet the bands: Unnatural Axe

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.

What?

What?

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!


Meet the bands: Watts

 

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!


Meet the bands: Muck and the Mires

Many of the bands who play Crash Safely are ultra, mega busy.  However, our local garage rock heroes, Muck and the Mires, will be coming to Crash Safely from from a very busy schedule overseas….

In case you didn't know.

In case you didn’t know.

If you follow them on Facebook, you’ll already know about the wondrous inventions they have discovered (spiral escalators!).  You’ll also know that they’ve been around the world, spreading their cool stage clothes and amazing garage rock sound.    If you’re new to the world of Muck, here’s a great introduction:

 

 

Muck graces the Midway stage on 10/17, with The Dents, The Sprained Ankles, Gymnasium and The Phil Aiken Army!   Grab your tickets for what’s sure to be a mucky great time!


Meet the Bands: Township

Township. They’ve been working out some great new tunes at the Midway Cafe, during their Woodshed Series, including a game show theme song.

Word on the street is that their excellent recent release Light Years is going to be out on vinyl soon, which, in our opinion, is the perfect way to experience these recordings.

The best way?  See them play it all live!!!

 

 

We may have just hypnotized you.  In that case, think of sweet, sweet guitarmony and don’t forget to grab you tickets! They’ll be sharing the Middle East Stage  with Watts, Unnatural Axe and Fireking.  Should be an amazing night!!!
