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).
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!
We’re getting the last bits ready for tonight!
Amazing music from The Phil Aiken Army, The Dents, Muck and the Mires and The Sprained Ankles…
Plus, the chance to win:
Two tickets to ANY ArtsEmerson performance in the 2015-2016 season!

We’ll see you at the Midway tonight!!
Let’s just start this out with Tankenstein:
Yes, that’s a kazoo. Yes, that’s a punk band.
Goofy, garage, punk. Guaranteed good time. How can you NOT love a song about a vampire girlfriend?
In fact, Amanda decided to wear her old school Rowdy Roddy Piper T shirt to the first night of Crash Safely because the Ankles are playing. One-up her and wear your Macho Man Randy Savage gear!
