About this project

"Atomic Mama is a contemporary electronic rock band based out of Boise, ID.  Since their inception, Atomic Mama has defined itself as a powerhouse duo for intricate construction of musical chivalry, fusing the wildly popular sounds of tomorrow with the shameless bravado of 1960's rock and roll, heightened only by the live performance " 

    -Zach Voss, Filmmaker

What's about to happen:

We are amidst planning for Atomic Mama's very first tour. We aim to do our thing in over 20 West Coast cities, all aboard our 1981 Thomas school bus. The tour will begin in Moscow, Idaho on September 23rd. From there we will travel to Seattle and down the West Coast, hitting every major city and lots of little ones.  


How it'll happen:

Funds will go toward equipment, merchandise, recording, and fuel. Before the trip begins we'll need to purchase some equipment that we've been borrowing from friends, and a few new items to spice up the live show. Merchandise will include tanks tops, short shorts, ball caps, and beverage koozies. One of our songs is currently available on bandcamp (see link below), with a full EP in the works. And, although we are hoping to turn our school bus into a biodiesel/kitchen greaser soon, for the time being we have to get around with good old fashioned (yet pricey) diesel fuel.

For our backers, physical items will be hand-delivered to those who attend shows along the route of our tour. Other gifts will be mailed to the supporters of the project within the continental United States, once our tour has been completed.
