Festival artists Build premiere new video

Hey everyone,

Wanted to share this great new video that Build has made for their tune "Ride," HERE

Build, you may recall, also provided the soundtrack for our Kickstarter video. They're based in Brooklyn, but will out visiting the Bay Area, including some time at UC Davis in the week leading up to Switchboard. Really fantastic stuff that squishes all kinds of sounds and styles together in a way that really expresses what Switchboard is all about. 

Come see them March 24th!

Last Day!

Hi everyone,

Our Kickstarter campaign ends at midnight tonight (Pacific time)! Thank you for helping us meet our goal and helping to make our 2013 Festival a reality. 

We're still accepting pledges right up until midnight—and every dollar helps—so please continue to spread the word, or consider raising your pledge by 10% to help cover our Kickstarter fees. Every dollar we earn is going to our performers, so anything you can do is greatly appreciated!

Thank you again for your contribution and your help spreading the word about this campaign. We'll be in touch soon about your reward(s)!

Best,

Ryan

Made it!!

Hey everyone, 

I'm VERY excited to announce that we have surpassed our goal of $7500, with two days to spare! Thank you all soooo much for your support. It goes without saying that we could not have done this without you, but even beyond your financial pledge, your support and encouragement has been overwhelming and has us all revved up for the 2013 Festival. 

BUT, this campaign was only the beginning. We were hit hard this year by cutbacks in arts funding and can still use more pledges in order to guarantee a strong festival on March 24. Please help by continuing to promote our campaign to your friends, family, and fans, or consider raising your pledge by 10% to cover Kickstarter's processing fees. 

Again, thank you so, so much for making this a reality. You are the bestest of the best!

Four days left, 71% there!

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for your support this week. We made huge strides and our goal of $7,500 is definitely within reach, but we still have lots of room to go. 

Please continue to spread the word to your friends, colleagues, family, and let them know why you've chosen to support Switchboard and how much their support will mean to our campaign. 

We've got pictures, bios, and mp3s of our 2013 artists up on our (new!) website, so please check that out and refer anyone who doesn't know us there to learn more: http://www.switchboardmusic.com/

Thanks again,

Ryan, Jon, Jeff

One week to go!

Hi everyone,

Thank you all so much for your support, it's been incredibly exciting to see so many new and old friends and fans come forward to pledge!

We're now ONE WEEK AWAY from our deadline and are almost to the 50% mark. Please help us meet our goal by sharing our campaign with your friends, family, co-workers, fans, children, carpoolers—anyone who might care about supporting innovative and eclectic music. 

Please help make your pledge a reality by helping us get the word out before next Monday!

Thanks again,

Ryan, Jon, and Jeff
