Nequam Sonitus will be making a tour of the east coast, giving shows in as many cities as possible. Help make this happen. please

New stretch goal: special performance DVD

If we somehow manage to reach $1,000 in the next 5 days, we will produce a fully featured DVD special of an hour long Nequam Sonitus performance featuring several special guests from the local experimental scene. On top of the extended performance footage, the DVD will be jammed with as many extras as one could reasonably jam into a DVD. If we reach the goal, anyone who pledged at the $20 tier will be given a choice between either the DVD or the t-shirt.

Locations and dates for this excursion are being arranged now, and will be announced as the tour comes closer to fruition.  Anyone on the east coast who is willing to host a performance by the creature should get in contact with us immediately.  You can reach me at nequamnoise@gmail.com

This is a very preliminary list of cities we'll be stopping in (updated as more info becomes available, and we can stop anywhere on the way to these cities if people show interest in meeting the creature):

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Nashville, TN
  • Baltimore, ML
  • Philadelphia, PA

  • Boston, MA
  • Chicago, IL
  • Grand Rapids, MI

For every $100 we get above our goal, we'll add a new city in a new state to the tour list.  The city will be selected based on where we can get a place ṭ̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉́̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̀̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̉̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃̃́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́o perform.


This experiment has proved incredibly expensive, but also productive. We have collected and arranged recordings of this creature, and its explorations of the world around it. Any help that you can provide to let us continue to study and understand this being will allow us to produce more catalogs of our operations.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

This is where your services come into play. The costs of transportation and maintenance involved are... prohibitive. I have poured my time and money into this project, and I am quickly running out of both. Your donations will help cut into these costs and make the trip easier for myself and the creature, which is in the best interests of everyone involved. We are running out of legal options and the creature is growing incredibly impatient.
