Equal parts muscle car and interstellar spaceship, Township brought Crash Safely to a magnificent conclusion. These guys are the stuff of legend. Their rocket-fuel-burning-454 of a set blew minds while raising money for the National MS Society.
Here are some photographs of The Field Effect, purveyors of heart-stabby music, at The Middle East. The performance was part of the Crash Safely series of shows which aim to raise money for the National MS Society. It is worth noting that the band played well and engaged the audience with occasional use of quiet parts and screaming, though not always at the same time. Viewers should be warned about the foul language embroidered on Doug Orey’s Wrangler brand shirt. The photographs are rendered in black & white to make them appear important. Thank you for visiting.
There’s a show I’d like to go to just about every night somewhere in this town. Some nights it can be tough to choose just one. Friday night is going to be impossible. Fourteen lovable Daykamp Music alumni will be taking the stage at five different area venues on October 17th. My brain is melting. What to do? Let’s see if we can figure this out together.
Let’s start at The Middle East Upstairs for a very good cause. Township, White Dynomite, The Field Effect and Triple Thick will be there for Crash Safely along with Animal Hospital. That’s alotta rock, with the money raised going to support The National MS Society. (FB Event)
Maybe you want to do good with your show-going dollars, but that show isn’t your thing? You could always head next door to TT’s for the latest installment of the Boston Does Boston benefit for the Animal Rescue League Of Boston. Cask Mouse, The Rationales, The Daily Pravda, Muy Cansado and The Fatal Flaw will be joined by Dave Crespo’s After Party at that one. (FB Event)
If you’re caught up in the Boston Music Awards buzz and want to check out New Artist Of The Year nominee The Color And The Sound, then Church is the place for you. Bonus time! Doom Lover are on that bill, too. Daykamp Music loves them, but we secretly worry they’re plotting our demise. At least they’ll write a creepy-cool song about it. (FB Event)
If you can’t find something to like in one of those shows, there’s nothing I can do for you. Oh wait! Yes there is! You can go see Gondoliers at Cuisine en Locale with Shepherdess and Planet Of Adventure. This show is being filmed. I can’t even image what Gondoliers have up their sleeves. I can’t wait to see.

I saw Sidewalk Driver three times in eight days and all I have are these lousy pictures. And these. Oh, and these. Each show was special in its own way. I had a blast every time. At The Midway they closed out this year’s Crash Safely benefit with a shower of confetti and whatever it was that Tad did with Gene Dante.
Gene Dante And The Future Starlets brought their glitz, glamour, showmanship and songs to The Midway to benefit Crash Safely.
My Own Worst Enemy rocked their indie/garage hybrid at The Midway for Crash Safely.
Quirky power pop took center stage at the Crash Safely benefit with The I Want You.
