We mentioned in a previous post that one of the big concerts on Springfield’s horizon was the debut show of newly formed rock group Bomb the Bay, which features a combination of members of A Day Away, Glass Bottom Boat Ride and Playing With Matches. Longtime Springfield showgoers could imagine the fruits of that combo already, but now we have finished and recorded tracks to listen to from the new group. The band released a three-song sampler CD to hand out in promotion of its show November 14 at The Outland Ballroom with Speak Up!, Benefit of a Doubt and Uno. Didn’t get one? Click here to listen to “A Perfect Disaster,” “Spacebar” and “Give It Away.”

Man, didn’t we just see them play a concert for the first time, DeRosh? Yes, you did, December 12 at Sparrows. Welcome to the accelerated career trajectory of Can’t Be Too Jumpy–not surprising, really, since half the band consists of former members of A Day Away and, well, that group already went through the same process the old-fashioned (read: slow) way. The four-song EP, titled Digital, is available for $3.96 in the iTunes Music Store. Stuff your iStocking with it, yo!
We just caught word of this late last night from Dan Magnum of Forever Endeavor Productions. Tommy, drummer of A Day Away and Springfield’s famous drumming group The Cadence, was hit by a car…yes I said hit by a car. He’s hurt really bad and needs support from the music community to help him get by.
Fellow musicians to the rescue. A bunch of big names in the Springfield music scene are working together to put on a benefit show to help raise money so Tommy can pay some bills while he’s laid up.
