Meet the Bands: The Field Effect

The Field Effect, like all of the Crash Safely bands this year, have been crazy busy!

They were at SXSW earlier in the year, played the Do617 party, released a cassette single and played the WERS birthday bash.

They’ll be at CMJ  right after they’re done with us at the Middle East Upstairs.

 

Catch ’em on the final night of Crash Safely with Township, White Dynomite, TRiPLE THiCK and Animal Hospital!

It’s all hosted by D-Tension and Jake Jampel, and after the Field Effect’s set, we’ll find out who gets to take home the Gibson Les Paul Future Tribute!

 

Grab your tickets!


Kittehs! (I mean, posters!)

We’re obviously big fans of cats.  If you head to the Crash Safely Instagram, you’ll see I’m not joking about that.  It’s possibly comprised of  75-80% cat photos.  Soon, you’ll be seeing these kittehs* all over  town.  Come up with creative names for them!  There may or may not be a prize in it for you for best cat name.

What do you mean “may?”

Speaking of prizes, Gibson started my morning off with a bit of a surprise.  I just happened to be home this morning when FedEx came around.  I wasn’t expecting anything, so I must have looked like I won the lottery when the delivery driver handed me this:

Well, the box that had this in it.

Well, the box that had this in it.

He was excited.  You’d think it was his guitar, he was so happy!  “That’s a great one,” he said, “beautiful color.  Enjoy!  Happy 4th!”

I did request a donation from Gibson, but I wasn’t expecting to hear back from them for a while.  I’ll take a surprise Les Paul delivery as confirmation that they want to help out! You’ll be able to bid on this beauty as the silent auctions are announced, and we’re planning on having this be something that will be picked up at one of the shows, so if you’re the lucky winner, you can start playing it immediately.  You could also take it with you to your studio time winnings as well, which we also keep adding to the list of winnable things.

*I know that's not how it's spelled.  It's cute.
