Fuck Off All Nerds: A Benefit Compilation for Mitch Dubey
On May 14th, the legendary Connecticut emo band My Heart To Joy played a fantastic final show ever at the Madison Arts Barn in Connecticut, along with The Book Slave, Slingshot Dakota, Into It. Over It, Snowing, Algernon Cadwallader, Hostage Calm and Jettison. All proceeds from the show went to benefit the family of Mitchell Dubey, a friend of DIY punk bands all over the country and a member of a number of them as well. As many of you may know, Dubey was murdered on March 24th at his home in New Haven, Connecticut. He was an amazing guy whose life and legacy will never be forgotten, and one who deserves a fitting memorial. That memorial comes in the form of Fuck Off All Nerds, a compilation that borrows his trademark catchphrase of songs by each band at the final My Heart to Joy show recorded live. Topshelf Records is releasing the compilation on vinyl, and all proceeds will once again go toward the Dubey family.
