Meet the bands: The Sprained Ankles

Let’s just start this out with Tankenstein:

Yes, that’s a kazoo.  Yes, that’s a punk band.

Goofy, garage, punk.  Guaranteed good time. How can you NOT love a song about a vampire girlfriend?

In fact, Amanda decided to wear her old school Rowdy Roddy Piper T shirt to the first night of Crash Safely because the Ankles are playing.  One-up her and wear your Macho Man Randy Savage gear!


Did you know?

The Maybe Sump’ms already rode around NYC last weekend, but you can still donate! In fact, we could really use the help! Keep in mind that 100% of the proceeds from Crash Safely also go to same pool and help fund crucial research into MS, patient assistance programs and fellowships for MS specialists.

In fact, ECTRIMS (the European Committee for Treatment and Research In Multiple Sclerosis) just ended and highlighted some major research breakthroughs, including:

  • “NEDA”- No Evidence of Disease Activity as a standard of care for people with relapsing forms of MS (This has NEVER been an option before!)
  • High dose Vitamin D improving cognitive function in MS patients
  • The effect of melatonin and seasons on relapses
  • Still in clinical trials, Ocrelizumab may be the most effective MS drug, even in hard-to- treat Primary Progressive MS

THIS is where the funds go from Crash Safely. THIS is why we ride, why we play.


We’re on WMFO this Tues!

We’ll be guests on Skybar Lusardi‘s show  on WMFO this Tuesday at 8pm!  He’ll be spinning tunes by all of the bands involved in Crash Safely, and Amanda will be on hand with some tracks and all of the information about both nights (including the proper ways to sway the raffle in your favor).

Just don't get grounded throwing lightswitch raves beforehand.

Meet the bands: Unnatural Axe

Do we really have to introduce, you, oh Boston music lover, to Unnatural Axe? Maybe this will jog your memory:

 

Maybe Cheetah Chrome should introduce you.

 

That’s a lot of black and white, now.

What?

What?

The Axe remain an amazing punk band that you are required to state that you’ve seen at least once in your lifetime.   They’re giving you a chance to up your punk cred on 10/23, with Township, Watts and Fireking at the Middle East Upstairs.

 

Think you’ll catch ’em next time?  You’ll be waiting- this is their ONLY area show this year.

 

Bring yer whole guild!


Meet the bands: Watts

 

Watts have been super busy AGAIN!  In case you’ve missed it, they’ve just come back from New York, after a quick diversion into Portland (ME, not OR). They’ll be helping fellow Crash Safely band Fireking celebrate their vinyl release soon, too!

Crash Safely will be your chance to get up close and personal with the band before they are called away to another far-flung city in need of their rock services.  (Aren’t ALL cities in need of Watts, really?)

Grab your tickets to 10/23 here, and remember- you can also enter to win lots of goodies at our raffles! See you at the Middle East!
