We need your help getting to Austin, TX for showcase opportunities during South By Southwest.
"...one of those Once In A Lifetime moments!"
UPDATE: Every single dollar makes a huge impact on the grand total. DON'T dismiss the power of 1. Some have written saying they feel silly only pledging a couple dollars; understand that crowd fundin Please Don't!
My name is Robb Jarrett and I'm the managing member of the band Angel Rocket, an Alternative/Electronic trio based out of Columbus, OH, and yes we coined the term "Altronic Rock"! We have the chance to showcase our music during the South By Southwest Conference (SXSW) in Austin Texas over the week of March 13-18th.This is an opportunity that comes once in a lifetime and is the result of months of hard work, applications, phone calls and follow-ups. It's an honor to even be considered for this event and suddenly it's almost a reality which feels very surreal.
Angel Rocket is the musical collaboration of veteran musicians Robb Jarrett (songwriter, producer, drummer, keyboards and electronics) and Denise Hall (vocalist, keyboards, and lyricist) and Carlos Torres-Ortiz (drums and vocals). The sound is the result of Jarrett and Hall’s contrasting musical backgrounds and tastes. Hall’s experience with mainstream pop, and Jarrett’s love for industrial and electronica, and heavy rock/punk and metal roots from Carlos, generates a uniquely fresh style and feel.
Angel Rocket draws on the influences of early electronic acts like Nine Inch Nails and The Prodigy, and finds familiar company with current artists like Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Yelle, Santigold, Sleigh Bells and Metric.
WE TRULY NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Ok, so here is the deal! We are thrilled by the opportunity, but have some challenges figure out before we pack the van and head down to Austin. This is where you come in!
- Fuel and Transportation: Expensive, but a necessary evil to any act moving across the country.
- Lodging & Food: Because of the number of people that converge on Austin for the conference, hotel rates and space are at a premium. We will be staying outside of town to save on expenses but lodging rates are still crazy!
- Production: Getting there is one thing. Getting gear to the stage is another. Moving equipment through a sea of people is impossible; renting a backline is the only realistic option.
- Marketing, PR, Street Team, Printing & Artwork: Before we leave and once we are there, we need to create a buzz! Posters and postcards and fliers...Oh my!.
Every dime we collect from this campaign will go towards this trip. The more we collect the better we can make this opportunity!
YOU / ME / US / WE...
To the point...there are few things in life more awkward than asking for money. We believe in the what we are doing and want nothing more than the chance to present to our peers in a setting like Music Week in Austin, TX. This is the opportunity that every musician dreams about. We have focused on this for a year! Your support, backing and interaction is what makes it possible...besides, this not just about money, this is about you becoming part of our project, event and every story and moment that comes from it. There will be no way to tell the story without mentioning you. The rewards we are offering are special to us and we know you'll feel the same.
Just a reminder, Kickstarter campaigns are all or nothing. We have to reach our financial goal or we don't get to cash it in. It's all or nothing! So...Let's Do This!
