It begins! Planning for Crash Safely 2014!

It takes a lot of time to get things together for Crash Safely.  This year is no different!  Now in year 4, we’re still learning how things go in the wild, wild world of non-profit fundraising. Last year was a big event- two weekends at three venues.  I always anticipated the next year’s show would be low key by comparison, however,  we will be returning to Oberon this year.

One night will be at Oberon! I don’t want to divulge any more information this early, but just know this- we’ll Crash at Oberon again.


I’m actively looking to mix up our usual lovable list of amazing performers as well.  Keep an eye out for a few new faces alongside some of our returning superstars!

Fun fact- when you do an image search in Google for  “returning superstars,” you get a ton of pro wrestlers.

Feel the power!

Feel the power!


While planning is in full swing, you can plan on dancing with your favorite bands, great raffle and silent auction items and oh so much glitter.


Also, no winter weather!  Who else is sick of snow right about now?

Mayor Curley wanted these, remember?



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.
