NERDS WITH GUITARS is releasing their first album, and they need the help of fellow nerds to get there. Donate some lunch money today!
After watching our video, you can see that we're - if nothing else - very eager and mostly friendly, if a bit socially repugnant and not at all easy on the eyes. Which is why we need your help, O attractive and socially mobile denizen of the internets.
This album has been seven years in the making. Sean and Alex have written it in steps and stages via MSN Messenger, in brief sessions before shows, in the whiskey-fogged haze after shows, and in their own heads the rest of the time. Though thousands may not believe us, it's a labour of love. And we need you - yes, you - to be the midwife that births this unholy crossbreed of pop-folk guitar and nerd-centric comedy into the world.
We called this album "This Is What You Get For Stealing Our Lunch Money" as a tongue-in-cheek castigation of all the jerks who made our lives miserable for years - you know, before they took jobs pumping our gas and bagging our groceries. But "Lunch Money" isn't for the bullies, or even for us (okay, maybe it's a bit for us). It's largely for a community that has accepted us and made us feel cool when we're anything but. It's for all the people who laughed at our stupid jokes, defended us when we seemed controversial, and made us feel like rock stars even when we were living in our mom's basements. So we're asking for your help, one last time, to make this project a reality and bring the good word of Nerd Folk to the masses.
Thanks in advance, for this - and for all the fish.
Alex & Sean
Sean and Alex would like to thank each and every one of our awesome backers for pledging towards making Lunch Money a success. As you can see from the message at the top of the screen, we didn't make our goal, which means none of you will be charged any money. HOWEVER!
If you would still like to back our project and receive all the cool stuff we said you would (plus an additional gift for being one of the Fine Forty who backed this project on Kickstarter) please email us at NERDSWITHGUITARS@GMAIL.COM so we can let you know how to donate now that Kickstarter is over. We will get back to you inside of 12 hours and - as we said - you'll be getting an additional thank-you gift for participating in Project: Lunch Money!
Thanks again to everyone for all your amazing support.
