The Island of Misfit Toys are about to embark on their first tour. We're excited, nervous, anxious to meet new people, and ecstatic to be going through another step towards being a "successful" band. It's a walk in the footsteps of heroes, local or not; the word "tour" has so many romantic connotations for us, glamorous or not.
However, such an incredible experience requires preparation. And although that sounds...exceptionally boring, it can be made FUN!
The fact is, we're all college kids with or without jobs, and a tour is an expensive undertaking. Gas prices are breaking records, and there are eight of us, which means we consume a lot more food than a normal band. Touring at our level is not exactly Almost Famous; we are probably going to end up in the red no matter what.
In order to lessen the damage and bring what could be a dire situation into the light, we are asking for tour donations in exchange for unique/hilarious/ridiculous rewards! Because any and all funds are appreciated like crazy (seriously, more than you know), we all put our silly heads together and made a list of prizes to correspond with the donation amounts.
Guys, if we reach this goal ($1300), we will probably cry tears of joy, in the most literal sense of the phrase. I can actually imagine that happening. It'd be the best leg-up for tour we could ask for, and if you help, we hope you love what we've got to offer.
