What a weekend!

[flagallery gid=3 name=Gallery]

 

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.

Tomorrow and today 1

Did you make it out to Crash Safely last night?

If you did…why are you awake? I left before a bunch of folks at 2am. Put your smart phone down and go back to sleep!

We had so much fun last night, I can’t even begin to describe it!  Photos are forthcoming (we had many talented photogs running around last night), but know that EVERYONE had an amazing time!

If you’ve never seen the Phil Aiken Army, you need to remedy that ASAP.  They are a phenomenal bunch!

You also owe it to yourself to see the Dirty Truckers more often, and you need to check out the Unholy III. The Deelinquents seem to get more and more amazing every night as well. As for the Gents… I can’t even begin to describe the power they brought to the stage- Ducky Carlisle is a drumming master.

So, how will tonight go?  Well, check out what Lord Bendover had to say to the Globe.

Many thanks to all of the bands who make Crash Safely the amazing set of shows that it is!

We’ll see you tonight!!!

 


Ceramics in the Raffle by Edwin Tan

Two folks I work with at Harvard Medical School moonlight as very talented artists!  Jodi Moore is creating jewelry for the raffle.  Edwin Tan gave me a box containing these lovely items for the raffle as well.  These are all handcrafted by him, using a variety of methods.   He’s had multiple shows in Cambridge and Boston (as well as all-out wars over who in the department got to buy things from him).

Check out the 10 items he’s donated and start making your plans now on how you’re getting these home with you!


Meet the Maybe Sump’ms: Crystal

This is Crystal’s first time as a Maybe Sump’ms team member! If you were at Crash Safely last year, you may remember Crystal. She was manning the raffle/auction area and taking pictures both nights.  She’ll be at this year’s shows as well, now she’s a virtual rider.  She’s created the coolest way to get people interested in the shows and donating. Click on Max to be taken right to her page to donate to the Maybe Sump’ms!

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

 

peerless logo

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.
