On Saturday, September 25th locals Broken, The Vultures, Lord Fowl and Iron Hand will be performing at Cafe Nine as part of a benefit show for local musician Jamie Saxton who is currently battling cancer.
From Safety Meeting Records head Carlos Wells:
“We’re doing up a benefit show for Jamie Saxton, longtime friend and area musician (of Beer Scouts of America, Five9Five, & Tijuana Hot Cocks), who is currently wrestling with cancer. Our hope is to put a lot of people in a room, get some good music going, some raffling, and some good times and hopefully our proceeds will help ease the burden on the Saxtons during an already difficult time. Please help spread the word and come down ready to drink, get rowdy, and win some prizes all for a really good cause. Show starts promptly at 9pm! So don’t show up at 10 thinking you’re not missing anything.”
There’s a $10 suggested donation for the show (or more if you can). In addition, there will be a raffle with prizes from a lot of New Haven area businesses including Firehouse 12, Haven Skate Park, Lovecraft Tattoo, and more.
Even if you don’t know Jamie, the show alone, featuring some of New Haven’s best punk and hard rock bands, should be well enough reason to get yourself to Cafe Nine on September 25th.

After a much needed break this summer, NHM is currently in the process of reactivating/reanimating. Well over a hundred shows have just been added to the Calendar with more being added everyday. In addition all of the Resource pages are being updated to reflect any changes that have taken place since the Spring. Regular updates will be returning to our Twitter and Facebook feeds as well.
As for the blog itself, new posts will be appearing both on the NHM homepage and through the arrangement that was established earlier this year with CTIndie.com. As stated in a previous post, NHM will now be covering all original music/show in the New Haven area, not just music/shows featuring New Haven area artists. NHM’s previous policy of not including cover/tribute bands or DJ only billings in our coverage still stands however.
Stay posted for more updates soon!
