A note from Manic:
As we are continually amazed at the outpouring of support for Mitch, his family and the community that he holds so dear, we would like to thank Etix.com for generously deciding to WAIVE ALL THEIR TICKET FEES that people normally would pay. The only fee that we are unable to get rid of is the credit card fee that the bank charges E-tix every time a credit card is used. They take a small percentage of each sale and that percentage will be ADDED ON to your donation so that no portion of your donation will be wasted. We hope this is agreeable to everyone.

The donations available are in increments of $5 up until the $50 mark and then they go up by $25. If you would like to donate an amount higher than the ones listed, please purchase your ticket and then make another donation via paypal to lauren.dubey [at] gmail [dot] com.

We would also like to give Toad's Place a huge thank you for donating the space for this event. They are not charging us a penny to use the venue and in addition to that they are shutting down all the bars except for the rain forest room so that the entire main room will be alcohol free. Mitch would have wanted it that way.

The Flaming Tsunamis
(Playing "Externalities" and some old favorites) The Flaming Tsunamis are an experimental hardcore/punk band that incorporates a diverse range of eclectic musical styles further accentuated by their inclusion of a horn section, keyboards, samples and auxiliary percussion. Based out of New Haven, CT the fiercely DIY and relentlessly touring six piece has put out releases on Kill Normal, a label that members of the band founded. Since their formation in 1999 the band has released 2 EPs and 2 full-length albums. In 2011 the band announced “Externalities”, their latest and potentially final album.

Call It Arson (Reunion Show)
No tricks. No sonic band-aids. No allegiances. No posturing. Call It Arson is simply the sound of four friends playing music in a room. James, Ryan, Jeff and Jesse craft dynamic songs that gracefully bridge the gap between the personal and the political.

My Heart To Joy (2nd to Last Show). My Heart to Joy is an Emo band from Connecticut. Shifting from their early beginnings as a chaotic, hardcore punk band, My Heart to Joy mixes 90’s indie rock leanings of bands like Guided By Voices and Superchunk with a more driving punk sound that has garnered them comparisons to bands such as At the Drive-In, The Trail of Dead, Braid, and Bear vs. Shark.

Slingshot Dakota is a two-piece indie-punk band from Brooklyn, NY/Easton, PA. Carly Comando sings and plays old sitcom theme songs. Tom Patterson plays drums loudly and sings, too. They released a new full-length record in Autumn of 2007. Jeff Cunningham left the band in 2006, but played guitar and sang on their first album, Keener Sighs, and “Demo #1”, he is now in a band named Bridge & Tunnel.

BRUNT OF IT started in 1995 in San Francisco, CA out of the ashes of Bay's HOODLUM EMPIRE. BRUNT OF IT played gigs in the Bay Area for about a year until Boofish moved back to the East Coast. The band was reformed with childhood friends and band mates from the Rhode Island hardcore scene (RIX), where he was very active in his youth. The band blends a mix of Old School Hardcore Punk Rock with distorted, dissonant Ska (not a clean guitar note in their set list). Infectious choruses and a driving beat are the backbone of BRUNT OF IT's no bullshit sound.
