NEW GOAL

We hit our goal halfway through, so we're making a new goal.  To say thanks to everyone who pledged thus far, and to raise more money, which we will use for the rest of our plane tickets and US tour expenses....    

IF we reach $2000, every pledge (over 10$) will now include an advance CD copy of our new record, Lonely Twin!!!!    So, if you pledged for the CD-R, you will then receive our new record in addition.   Thank you all so much!

***

Our last record, Oh, Ramona, was released by Kutu Folk records in France in October of last year. Our new record, Lonely Twin, will be released there on May 2nd, 2011! www.kutufolk.com

We are traveling to Europe as a band for the first time in late April to play shows in France with labelmates St. Augustine. Here's the dates:

                                                                                                                             April 28th Paris, April 29th Paris, April 30th Bordeaux, May 1st Nantes, May 2nd Clermont Ferrand, May 3rd Annecy, May 4th Paris, May 5th Lille, May 6th Strasbourg, May 7th Toulon                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

We plan on drinking lots of wine and eating a lots of amazing food. But what this project is for is to cover 1/2 of our plane ticket costs.

A note about the rewards:  the rewards aren't cumulative, so if you want a day of recording time with me and lucas ($100) and a T-shirt ($15,) you have to pledge $115.  

*** At the end of the project (if it is funded completely) everyone who pledges will be sent an email where we will figure out what reward you want...  shirt size, color, etc..  and if you want multiples (like 2 shirts for instance,) go ahead and pledge the amount for both of them ($30) and we'll figure it out afterwards.  Thanks!!!!***
