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.

About a month away…

It’s getting closer to show time!  I’m still getting raffle and silent auction items coming in (as well as questions and rejections, which are just part of the process I suppose), and I’ve just concluded a summer class.  I’m super tired, but there’s still a lot to do for the shows!

 

Posters are in- you should start to see them around town soon.  There’s a very limited number of the silk screened posters, so keep an eye out for them! If you like them and part of  you thinks that no one will notice one poster going missing around town… just email me instead. I’ll give you one if we have extra.  Seriously.

 

In a week, all folks who are interested can begin bidding on studio time online.  Here is all of the info for those items:

Four (4) hours of studio time with Dave Minehan

 

Zippah Studios Giveaway Flyer

A Day at Zippah with Brian Charles

 

Q Division logo

A day in Studio B with Ed Valauskas

Two (2) songs mastered at Peerless by Jeff Lipton

 

None of these are small places looking for exposure; You’re pretty much not going to get this sort of caliber of studio prize options without having to get picked for the Rumble.  Even better? You don’t have to endure getting knocked out of the running by having a bad set or vindictive judge. This is the first time I’m running the silent auction online, so I’m hoping that it works out even better than last year.

 

You’ll be hearing more from me, as well as the Night Ridah, very soon!  I’m really looking forward to two days in the Davis Square Theatre.
