We are an Indie Rock/Powerpop band from Chicago, and we have a dream to tour the United States in Summer 2010.
We are an Indie Rock/Powerpop band from Chicago, Illinois. We formed the band a year ago and realized immediately that we were accomplishing something special together. We started booking more and more shows and, before we knew it, we had played at just about every venue in or around the Chicago-land area. Having done the best job we could to spread the word around our area, we started booking out-of-state shows. But, it wasn't long before we started running out of money. With all five of us being full-time college students, continuously renting trailers from U-Haul while paying for gas as well is becoming less and less practical.
This summer, we have planned and booked a five-week long tour that spans across thirty-three cities. The tour will begin on June 18th, 2010 and end on July 31st, 2010. There stands one problem however, and it is the cost of buying a used trailer. We have made agreements with most of the venues to get us gas money to be able to go on to the next city, and the food is not even a problem as we will bring food from home. But, we simply don't have enough money to afford a trailer, which will allow us to make this tour a dream come true. With the help of Kickstarter and YOU, we plan to raise $2,000 by June 5th, 2010. Between $1,000 and $1,500 will go towards the cost of a Used Trailer. The left over money will be used to print new Two Star CDs for you guys and some other merch for you as well. Not one penny of the money raised through Kickstarter will be used for personal expenses.
We have some great rewards for all the people who donate as well. They include, but are not limited to, a free download of our new single "A Girl, A Canvas" to be released in June, 2010, free download of our "Summer Love Under The Stars" EP, stickers, buttons, physical signed copy of the EP, any choice of a t-shirt, signed limited edition Two Star screen printed tour poster, a photo shoot with the band, your name mentioned on our forthcoming full length CD, your name mentioned in our tour DVD documentary (you will receive a copy), and for a certain amount donated, we will play a show anywhere in the continental US (You have to book us, and this could be in your backyard, garage, bedroom, or anywhere else). So please, help us make this tour a reality and really, a dream come true for all of us.
