It just occurred to me that we never posted following this year’s fest! Well, in case you missed out: Smash it Dead was able to raise nearly $5,000 for BARCC! We were so glad to share such an amazing weekend with friends from all over the country, and we hope you did too.
We are now beginning to plan for next year’s fest, and are excited to hear you feedback! Do you have a band you’d like to play the fest? Do you know of a great organization who would be interested in hosting a workshop? Do you want to cook a ton of food for bands? Hit us up! Our email address is info(at)smashitdead(dot)net.
Stay tuned for fundraising and band updates TBA!
Also how am I only just seeing this amazing picture:
Thanks Katrina! See you all soon.

Congenital Death, who played last year, are playing tonight in Allston with Tinnitus and Hospice! Be sure to check that out.
Saturday, Sick Fix will be around with Coke Bust, No Sir I Won’t, and Terminal Crisis (featuring Krystina from our collective/Curmudgeon/etc!). There will be a bake sale at this show, so be sure to bring some extra dollars if you can swing it!
We had a great turnout, some amazing costumes, and plenty of candy. The cover sets were all so much fun. Thanks to everybody who played or attended last night. Thanks to ya’ll, we were able to raise over $300 for Smash it Dead 2013!
Now that we have raised most of what we will need to put on the fest, we can focus on asking bands. Be sure to check back here for updates on the lineup, as well as more ways to get involved.
Thanks to all who attended our first open meeting for the 2013 Fest!
