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…
We’ll see you tomorrow night!!!!
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……!
Want more info or to bid? Check out www.crashsafely.org!
And all of the money raised at the show goes to the National MS Society!!
The cost of admission to all of this? $10.00. Seriously! Will we see you Friday?
If you have a group with these fine folks, you just know it’s going to sound amazing:
One part Aquanutz, one part Township, one part Kinks and one part Brown Boot gets something that sounds a bit like this:
Gymnasium bring their awesome rock to Crash Safely’s second night! It’s shaping up to be a huge party, so make sure you’re front and center… you may need to warm up a bit before you head in!
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?

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.
