Tomorrow Night!

We’re hours away from night two of Crash Safely!!

(not that we’re counting or anything….)

You can still grab tickets to see Petty Morals, Gymnasium, My Own Worst Enemy and Tsunami of Sound with hosts Cotton Candy, and make plans for winning that autographed Bruins puck.

 

You’ll need a strategy for that, seeing as the Midway staff happen to be big Bruins fans…

See?

We’ll see you tomorrow night!!!!


Getting excited for Friday!!!

Maybe you heard that Petty Morals are up for a couple of Boston Music Awards. Maybe you want to get a head start on your Halloween trip by asking Tsunami of Sound to play the Munsters theme song.  Maybe you saw My Own Worst Enemy in the pages of Magnet.  Maybe you stalk the members of Gymnasium (face it- we’re onto you.  You’re stalking Rod right now, aren’t you?). You know they’ll all be at the Midway on Friday night, right?

That’s not enough for you? Maybe you need to win things. Things like tickets for the NY Skyride.  A Shake Shack gift certificate (which you can use at the one that makes your favorite french fries). A Store 54 gift certificate that you may think twice about redeeming, because it’s such a cool certificate. Photography by Pete Weiss. A gift certificate from Capital Genealogy to check out your dad’s claim that you’re descendants of the Queen of England. Tickets for two for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum that don’t expire.  An ArtsEmerson membership, including two tickets to any event for free.  More of a sports fan?  Try your luck at winning a Boston Bruins puck signed by  Zdeno Chára!

Feeling more like an auction? We’ve got that, too.

Auctions for studio time at places like Q Division, The Bridge Sound & Stage, Zippah, Peerless Mastering, Woolly Mammoth Sound, New Alliance and more.

A dinner cruise on Boston harbor with a hotel room. This one ends at 11pm on Friday……!

rawr!

Show off your Bruins fandom with an autographed puck from team captain Zdeno Chara!  You’ll only be able to win this on night two of Crash Safely!

You’ll want to get in on this raffle early, as quite a few Midway staffers and regulars are Bruins fans.

 

Did you think I was joking?

How to describe Petty Morals? Disco punk, Joan Jett, P-Funk, and Prince in a blender, no boys allowed?

 

How about just plain awesome?

 

They’ve just released their new EP, opened for Shonen Knife and made all sorts of noise at the Rumble!

These busy ladies will be headlining night two of Crash Safely on 10/10!
