ONE LAST CONCERT! ONE LAST RECORD!
The point of this Kickstarter is that we very much want to put on a show to celebrate - but we don't want to put on a show if no one is going to be there! Please help by only pledging the ticket rewards if you will be at the show...
Treadmill Trackstar has been quietly making loud music for the past 25 years. We would be honored to have you help us celebrate our passing with one last concert and one last EP. Think of it as a fantastic Irish wake.
We feel so lucky to have made 3 friend/family/fan funded records since we reunited in 2007. We'd love to do it one last time.
Joining us for the first time in decades is TARWATER! This amazing band from back in the day has agreed to get back together to help us celebrate! Also joining us is indie God and great friend Milton Hall.
The last Treadmill show will be on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at New Brookland Tavern in Columbia, SC. This is an all-ages show - but anyone under 21 will be charged an additional $4.00 surcharge at the door.
The only way to get tickets is right here.
The money raised will go to pay for the EP and to give the support bands a little cash for playing the show. See the budget below.
Some folks had some humorous stories that we couldn't fit in the main video. If you've got the time and need a little amusement - check them out.
Thanks to Mike and our friends at New Brookland Tavern for providing the venue.
Thanks to our friends at ROCKAFELLAS REUNION for their support and for offering to provide much needed cold refreshments for the bands.
