TV Girl is touring these United States this summer and need cash for a van that won't catch on fire and burn them to death.
Let's cut the crap and get straight to business. We're going on our first ever national tour and need some cash to buy a van. Thus far as a band, we've managed to evade the slimy tentacles of a record label and subsequently have to fund a tour completely on our own, which shouldn't be a problem with the help of our fabulous friends and fans. We've given away the vast majority of our music for free, so if you've ever had the notion to support us financially, here's the chance you've been waiting for!
Sure you could spend your money on some sort of worthwhile charity cause instead of helping out some indie band live "the dream," but then you wouldn't get the fabulous prizes we've lined up. Prizes like t-shirts, demos and unreleased tracks, vinyl records, and other mind-blowing bonuses, including the grand prize of an original song in the style of a musical artist of your choice. Go ahead, try to stump us.
And don't forget about the 300 dollar MYSTERY GIFT. What could it be???
Thank you in advance. We like to joke around, but we truly do appreciate our fans and all the support you've given us thus far. We'd like nothing more than to keep making music that we both enjoy and bring it to the people around the country.
Note: If you're not in the US, please add $10 to your donation to help us cover international shipping fees.
Here are our confirmed date for this summer. Keep in mind that Guest list spots are good for any future show. (We plan on hitting most parts of the US this year)
For the last time: NO! It's good for whenever we happen to make it to your area or if you happen to be wherever we are when we play! OK?!?!?!? And yes, we plan on hitting most major US markets soon. Within the year.
Yes. Probably. Definitely. But on the other end of the spectrum, there's certainly worse things that you spend your money on all the time. Drinks, drugs, or any number of vices for starters. This kick starter is exactly in the middle of things that you should and shouldn't spend money on and therefore maintains the delicate equilibrium of the universe (Source: science)
Sadly, yes :(
The mystery prize is a potent combination of....hey wait a second!
Follow your dreams. Unless you have stupid dreams.
Did you donate five dollars to that kickstarter about that guy who's trying to raise money to make a book that consists entirely of photos of dogs sitting in cars?
Pretty much, as long as it's made for humans to eat.
