Everyone knows WMD has a reputation for rocking out for a good cause, whether it's volunteerism, DC voting rights, or the homeless. As proud as that makes us, the cold-hard reality of recording costs means we need to raise money! Some cash up front allows us to pay the kindly sound engineer who's recording and mixing our set at a huge friendly discount, as well as the rental fee on the baritone sax for Adam and the soul lessons for Steve.

You all know the value of WMD: dozens of your close friends cycling in and rocking out: Ian, Josh, Dolan, Steve, Niall, JQ, Morgan, Murphy, Karch, Frank, Adam, Melissa, Max, Tim, Kip, Rich, Sully...even Fletcher, Edwin, and Richard wrote some of these tunes! We're truly in the running for best-ever amateur 11-piece-political-day-job soul/rock band, and we want to immortalize that!

Your contribution, however small, can make that a reality. Who's in?
