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!!!

Meet the Bands: Township 2


Township have been putting out a ton of great music this year. An EP a month (at least), with some pretty trippy videos to go along with them.



We may have just hypnotized you.  In that case, think of sweet, sweet guitarmony and don’t forget to grab you tickets!

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.
