The First Week Club
Thank you so much for getting on the Faking The Wisdom train in the first seven days! Thanks to you, we reached 15% of our funding. With seven weeks to go, doing the math this early bodes well for our project, and that's because of YOU. Thanks!
May we be so bold as to ask you to spread the word to anyone who might be a music enthusiast or just likes to support creative endeavors? Just copy this link:

Oh, and if you're in the Raleigh area, don't miss our Kickstarter Appreciation Night at Kings on Friday March 30th! We're going to play a bunch of stuff from the new album, and our friends Gray Young and J Kutchma & The Fifths are playing, too. Earlybirds will be treated to specially crafted hors d'oeuvres by chef Caroline Morrison, and DJ Rotisserie Gold (aka Scott Goner shhh) will be spinning all night! Because you donated here, YOU GET IN FREE! (If you don't run into one of us before the show, don't worry. You can pick up your Goner Patron Card at the door.)
Oh and this just in: Goner & Friends at Humble Pie, Wednesday April 11 from 9:30 to midnight. Acoustic set with lotsa guests and covers. Very loosey-goosey, and yes, the card gets you into that, too. Come on down!
Thanks again and stay tuned!
