So, as many of you guys know by now, the name of our new record is Savages. Its actually a reference to my little brother who passed away in October of 2009. He was a straight up punk rock kid who could not stand any band I was in, and while we weren't really very close, he's obviously in my heart everyday. So, in honor of my punk rock brother who probably played more VFWs, halls and basements than I ever will, The Gay Blades are going to embark on the Savage Basement Series....BUT FIRST WE NEED YOUR HELP!


When Quinn aka Puppy Mills and I first started playing music (many bands ago), we used to throw these amazing house shows in our basement at 117 Louis Street in New Brunswick. It was a pretty magical time in our lives - a basement, a couple kegs, a shitty PA and about 200 sweaty kids. It's probably the nostalgia talking, but those shows were the most fun.

If you think you can throw a show with The Gay Blades in late September and keep the cops out, well then, we'd love to play your basement, loft, garage, or living room. Email us at TheGayBlades@gmail.com to submit your spot for consideration. We can only do a couple of these things...so let's try to make it special!!!

Some Ideal Cities, though we'll really go anywhere if we can make a routing work:
Boston, MA
Albany, NY
Brooklyn, NY
New Brunswick, NJ
Philadelphia, PA
Washington DC
Pittsburgh, PA
Columbus, OH

This could be the best or worst idea ever...I guess we'll find out...

I think a performance at THE BASEMENT in Columbus, OH would be very fitting.

I can't really host a show in my apartment, but I'd love to go to a Boston show if it's set up.
