I'm a huge fan of SPINAL TAP and I wanted to make my kickstarter video entertaining. So hopefully you'll have a laugh watching me act like an idiot.

TNB KICKSTARTER

hey, it's Thom (yup, I spell Tom with an "h"). This is my first BIG, LEGIT tour of the UK. We're going to turn it up to 11 to play 11 cities in 11 days. After playing over 300 concerts in the states with my band "TNB" we're ready to venture across the pond. TNB is comprised of amazing musicians/vocalists that I've cherry picked from other bands: MATT KENNEDY (The Graduate) TIM MOORE (The Graduate) and CLINT FOWLER (Automatic Loveletter) I expect great, big, giant things to happen because of this UK tour in September. Here's a video of the band at a show in Los Angeles.

HOW THIS ALL GOT STARTED

I've been getting tons of requests on TWITTER from people wanting us to tour different countries around the world. Since I'm not with a giant label to front the gazillions of dollars that it always takes to travel and promote a tour this big, I'm coming to you to gather funds so that I have the capital to do this with a huge bang. I think kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms like this are the BEST thing for bands right now - no label, no rules, no fuss, no muss. just us and the music.

here we go, yo:

**ALL SHIPPING COSTS ARE INCLUDED IN EVERY PACKAGE, NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE!**please bear this in mind when you look at the prices. it was easier to do things this way, but it also means, in the spirit of art-in-the-mail-democracy, that those of you living in Los Angeles might be paying a little bit more to cover the shipping to the people in, say, tibet.

THE TOUR

I'll be at Wales ComicCon in Wrexham on September 23rd. I'm planning on doing an acoustic concert afterward just like this one in Žatec, Czech Republic

If this kickstarter doesn't spontaneously combust then the band will come to tour the UK from September 19th - 30th and here are the areas we're looking at playing: Brighton, London, Birmingham, North Wales, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow. Of course these are subject to change based up what we can book.

We also are friends with a couple of bands in the UK and we hope to do some of the tour dates with ACCESS ROYALE, RYAN KEEN and PAPER PLANES.

Here some picture from one of our recent Los Angeles shows in 2012.
