We’re throwing a special pre-show reception on to welcome our buddy Peter back to town and to do something fun with the folks at Yellow Cab Tavern and Christopher’s Restaurant. From 6:30 to 8:00 pm on June 9 at Yellow Cab, we’ll host a wine tasting catered by Christopher’s featuring a flight of 6 wines from their new summer list and a healthy spread of heavy hors d’oeuvres for a grazing “tapas style” dinner. 

Tickets are PRE-SALE ONLY and include six 2 oz pours of wine, hors d’oeuvres dinner, admission to the show and, of course, great hangs with us and Peter. Food will include vegetarian and gluten-friendly options as well as omnivorous and gluten-glorious selections. Something for everyone!

Motel Beds - Dumb Gold LP Pre-order to Benefit Ian Kaplan

Ian Kaplan has played in Motel Beds, Lab Partners, Goodbye/Crusher, Lioness, Company Man, Feathered Serpent, Human Reunion, Jayne Sachs Band and many more. He's a friend to many, an incredible musician, and he's one of the funniest people you'll ever meet, despite his longstanding health issues. 

Ian recently had the misfortune of  needing a liver transplant -- and the good fortune of receiving one. While we're so glad Ian is on the road to recovery, he and his wife, Brooke, are now facing the difficult reality of enormous medical bills. Magnaphone had an idea. Let's re-release one of our favorite albums by the Motel Beds, on vinyl for the first time, to benefit our friend Ian and provide his friends and fans with a slice of audiophile bliss. 

Bands and fans from the Dayton area contributed to remaster and press Dumb Gold as a donation to our friend. It's being mastered by Carl Saff  and pressed at Gotta Groove Records in Cleveland, OH. There will be an extremely limited run of 300 copies available, first come first serve, for $25 each. One hundred percent of sales will be used to pay down Ian's medical bills. 

To reserve your copy, please order via the Motel Beds artist page. Additional donations may be made to a GoFundMe campaign set up by Ian's friends. Delivery is expected by mid summer 2018. Thanks for supporting a friend in need... and great local music.
