One Night Only – A Reunion Show with Stavesacre, Living Sacrifice, Puller, Ghoti Hook and Everdown. Saturday April 13th 2013 - Dallas, Texas.
For most of the 90’s, Stavesacre, Living Sacrifice, Puller, Ghoti Hook and Everdown were on the road – and for large portions of that time and in some form or another, they were on the road together. On tours or at festivals (of all shapes and sizes) unique experiences were had and friendships were born – both among the bands that played and the fans that supported them.
Moonlit road trips, gas station dining, new music, massive CD collections and of course: late nights and good people. If you feel any kind of nostalgia at this point, read on!
A few months back, Mike Lewis (Puller, zambooie.com) made a fake flyer for a fake show with a fake lineup in the very real city of Dallas, TX then posted it on facebook and tagged all the real bands. What followed were hundreds of comments and likes and… lots of wringing hands in the form of a common question:
“Is this really happening?”
Well, that’s where you come in.
We’ve put together this Kickstarter in hopes that we can make the reunion happen, and for as many people as possible.
These days, the assorted members of these bands are scattered all over creation, from across the U.S. to “across the pond.” Aside from Living Sacrifice, most of these bands haven’t played live together in years. Once upon a time we might’ve easily pulled this off as a stop on a tour or booked it as a weekend getaway gig, but to make it a reality now is slightly more challenging.
Turns out, same goes for the fans. We’re all… all over the place. Why Dallas, TX you ask? Well, in the 90’s and early 00’s Dallas/Ft. Worth always produced some of the largest, most passionate crowds in the country so… seemed logical!
Plus, it’s sort of in the middle.
We created this Kickstarter to fund “One Night Only” without anyone risking too much to do it. We think our backing options accomplish this task.
There will be downloads. There will be shirts.
There will be horsing around.
There will even be some good ol’ fashioned Rock n’ Roll. (Well, you know what we mean.)
So yeah: It’s really happening – with your help. We plan to record and film the show – and to make both recordings available for download within a few weeks of completion. Your funding is your ticket to the show in whichever way you can attend. Obviously… WE WANT YOU THERE (it’s a reunion!) but we understand that some will simply not be able to make it. We believe this project enables us to satisfy even those who won’t be able to come along.
Thing is, the bands kind of need to be there. This isn’t about money, it’s about getting friends together. There are costs involved with travel, hotels, production and promotion. (Some things never change!) The audio and video will require engineering and editing. Not everyone can travel in Mark’s private jet. (No, Mark does not have a private jet.) People need to eat, sleep and shower in peace.
We believe this project provides enough options for backers to get involved and make One Night Only a reality!
So please, join in! Spread the word. Take a vacation and plan a road trip. We would LOVE to see you there.
And from all the bands: Thanks. Thank you all, so very much.
Thanks for checking out our Kickstarter, thanks for supporting all these years and thanks for remembering.
Hope we see you there!
Risks and challenges
Anytime you organize an event with 25 people and multiple bands, it’s always a challenge. We’ve reserved the Door in Dallas for April 2013, but all the bands have signed on. At this point, it’s all about getting our project backed so we can get to work re-learning set lists! Flights and travel, hotels, production and promotion – the cost of the event will be very real, which is why these things don’t happen that often! Please lend a hand so we can see this through.
