Two Nights to CRASH SAFELY

SHOWS OF THE WEEK 
A 2-Night Music Benefit
featuring 10 live acts!

Crash Safely is a two-day music fundraiser aimed at helping raise awareness and money for the Cause of MS. Multiple Sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Most people are diagnosed in their 20's and 30's. But MS lasts a lifetime. There is no cure. Did you know that every hour of every day someone in the United States is diagnosed with MS?

Hitting Close to Home: 

Amanda Nichols, former writer for The Noise, Boston's Weekly Dig, YourFlesh Magazine and current contributor to Chunklet Magazine, was diagnosed in 2008 with Relapsing-Remitting MS. Amanda plays out occasionally, sitting in with friends, but was a session musician who's worked with Jeffrey Simmons, Darryl Blood/Tiltmaster and John Haydon.

Pete Hayes of The Figgs was diagnosed within months of Amanda with the same form of MS. Pete takes to actual bike in the BikeNYC Challenge in October, while Amanda's a virtual rider, books the shows and created the web site. Everyone playing the shows is either a bandmate, friend or family member.

Everyone involved in Crash Safely has someone close to them who lives with MS.
