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. Click through for more information, and to pre-order the record, which will ship over the summer.

So we retracted our statement last month about the final My Heart to Joy at the Same Tone show. Make Do And Mend had to drop as they’re touring down to Krazy Fest. Instead, they have been replaced by Slingshot Dakota, Algernon Cadwallader, and Into It. Over It.
More info coming soon.

Reblogging this again just because it’s such a perfect lineup. Stoked for May 14!

Longstanding Connecticut emo-punks My Heart To Joy are leaving with a bang. The above picture has the details of their last show ever, which will take place at the Madison Arts Barn in Madison, Connecticut on Saturday, May 14th. The lineup is absolutely insane, and assuming that Algernon Cadwallader don’t drop the show (They’ve been known to do so in the past), this show will be perhaps a defining moment for underground punk music in Connecticut. The show is further supported by Snowing, one of my favorite punk bands ever, in addition to Slingshot Dakota, The Book Slave, Connecticut’s own Hostage Calm and Jettison, and the acoustic twinkly tear-bringer Into It. Over It.
I’ve heard rumors that this show will be free, but nothing on this flyer suggests that to be true.

My Heart To Joy at the Same Tone - Final Show Information

allagesct:

My Heart to Joy at the Same Tone will be playing one final show on May 14th at a Connecticut site to be determined, with Hostage Calm, Make Do and Mend, Snowing, Jettison, and The Book Slave.

This show will be free.

Everything about this is amazing… Based on how incredible My Heart To Joy's second to last show was last friday, I can only hope that this next show will be nearly as awesome.

AllAgesCT comes through once again. Seriously, best blog.

Update: Disregard that, the details regarding My Heart To Joy's final show are not entirely clear at this point.
