CD Release Show & What Happens Next

Comment

Hello Kickstarter Backers,

We are in the home stretch of our CD Release Journey with our debut album completed and ready (see picture below), and our CD Release Show Next Friday!

What Happens Next

I will be individually contacting you via your email in the next couple days. If your reward is a digital download, more info will be coming to you about that process shortly. If your reward is a physical CD or more, we will be holding your goodies for you to pick up in person at our CD Release show this Friday. If we are not lucky enough to see you at the release, we will then use the mailing address you provided to ship you your CD and other rewards.

If you donated $35 or more, you have free admission to our CD Release Show this Friday. I will be checking in with you individually to see if you'd like me to add you to the guest list. Again, we'll have your CD, and any other applicable rewards, for you to pick up in person. If you are not able to pick up your reward at the show, we will mail you your rewards with the address you provided.

Update #12

CORRECTION on Biddy's Show Date

Comment

HI!

Quick CORRECTION:
The Biddy McGraw's show is Friday, July 13th not the 17th. That's right, we seem to be attracting multiple Friday the 13th shows. Do you think it's our name?

Thanks!

-Her Ghost


Update #11

Skydive & CD Release

Comment

Hello Wonderful Backers,

Danielle of Her Ghost here. I hope you enjoy these updates:

First, my skydive is coming up on July 8th. You may have forgotten that I made a video pledge that I would skydive if Her Ghost reached our Kickstarter goal. Well, I am a woman of my word, and the skydive is only a week away! Can you feel my adrenaline from here? I'm excited that several others will be jumping with me INCLUDING (drum roll please) Todd!!! We will be jumping in the name of Her Ghost Glory, and I will be having my jump video taped for your viewing pleasure. I've never done anything quite like this before...I have to say that it is fun for all of our backers and fans to be in the loop for this unique "stretch."

Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, our CD Release is booked for August 17th at Secret Society in NE Portland. We are currently fine-tuning the album mix with Mix-master Extraordinaire Patrick Brewer of Backline Records, and we are right on schedule to have our CD in your hands for the August 17th release. We have an AMAZING opener named Patti King, and a lot of other surprises lined up for Release Night. 

You can join the Facebook event for our CD Release here: http://www.facebook.com/events/392919254098344/

If admission to the CD Release was not already included with your backer incentive, you can purchase tickets in advance here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/257229

In other news, the music video is finished and slated for release in the next couple weeks. We are going to release the video in tandem with our new website. Coming very soon!

Last, but not least. We have an extensive, upcoming local touring schedule. Lots of opportunities to catch us live. We'd love to see you!

We hope to see you at one or more of these shows! We also cannot wait for you to hear this album and see the video for Bus Stop Betty. We are very proud of what we've created, and we feel so lucky to have worked with so many amazing musicians and artists along the way.

I'll see you on the flip side of the skydive. Thank you for making all of this possible! My gratitude is endless!

Geronimo!

-Danielle, and Her Ghost (Todd, Drew, & Tony)
