DJ Dance Party this Saturday! Kickstarter ends Sunday at 4:20pm!

Hello wonderful backers.  We effing love you and are so grateful for your coming together to make this thing happen with us.  This is going to be such a fun year.

We are throwing a celebratory Thank You Dance Party this Saturday from 9pm-2am at the Pinhook bar and venue in Durham, NC, where there will be three DJs and dancing all night long.  Free entry, drink specials, secret surprises!   Anyone can come, backers and non-backers.  It's just to say thanks and to celebrate a new year.  And to dance.

More info here:

And!  Our Kickstarter project deadline is this Sunday at 4:20 pm EST!  If you have any additions you want to make to your pledge (like $10 for the live album as a download, $25 as a CD), or other items you want to combine, do it now before it's too late!  You can email us at to ask about adding additional prizes to your order.

Also please tell anyone you know who might still want to get one of the prizes, like the limited edition items that will only be available through the Kickstarter page.  Also, everyone backing this Kickstarter will get the new music before the general public, so that's something to consider for your music-loving friends.

Have a great week, and for y'all who are close, come join us for the party!  We might also have a live feed of some sort of the party for you faraway friends.  More info TBA.


Beth, Phil, Olive and Spice

      I'm so happy for you! and grateful too. I wasn't sure about doing a kickstarter project myself, because it felt like begging for money. Then I found you and pledged your project and discovered that it's not just about asking people for money, it's about providing an experience. I've been so excited following along on your progress. Today is the last day of my kickstarter campaign as well, and it's successfull! I feel like I owe a small part of that success to you. Thanks! Love
