Crash Safely 2014 Lineup

If you head to the main page, you’ll see photos of (almost) everyone involved in Crash Safely this year. What you don’t see, however, are the dates and lineups.  Where would you find that info? Maybe even some ticket links, because you want to be sure to be there?

 

Wait for it...

Wait for it…

 

Right here.

We’ve spaced out the shows more this year, and two of them actually happen after the bikeMS ride in NYC. Why’s that? I realized that we don’t have to get our donations all in on the day of the ride, and October worked out nicely for these shows.  Awesome posters are on the way from Daykamp Creative as well.

Also new for this year: vacation-type prizes in silent auction!  I figure by October, we’ll all be yearning for 90 degree weather, so a 5-day stint in Cancun for two might be a sought after prize.  There’s a hot date you can win as a mini-staycation, with a dinner cruise for two on the Odyssey and a hotel to stay in afterwards.  Lots of studio time as always, and lots more fun things coming in every day.


Q BBQ!

 

Alright, fine- It’s a yard sale, technically, and there will indeed be BBQ.  Q Division’s Yard Sale is tomorrow and a bunch of Crash Safely folks will be there.

And we’ll be hungry!

 

I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while, now, but I just got a new computer and the monitor is, well… overwhelming. Everything I type looks like it’s appearing across the street from me, which is a little disorienting.

Go ahead, try to spell correctly!

 

The Q Yard Sale is a lot of fun, and at last year’s event, the fun started on the red line on my way there.  While I’m not looking for anything in particular this year (in fact, I’m looking to give someone some music), I will probably leave there with some treasures. Unlike last year, I’m not in the process of moving the shows from one venue to another or changing dates.  I am simply waiting for the first round of the artwork!

Should you be wanting a quick rundown, here are the details as they are today.  Keep in mind these shows are in September, so be flexible with your iCal, ok? Ticket links are on the way as well for most nights. It’s not even July. I’m organized, but I’m not quite that good. Go ahead and give me some cute names for nights 2 and 4 as well.
