Kat Jones & the band Minor Birds are going on a national tour and will be making tons of AMAZING merchandise & art to sell on the road.

That fateful day last December when the nuclear bombs went off and destroyed a great deal of what we then knew as the world, it became apparent that we were all going to have to live differently.  Kat Jones & the band Minor Birds are embarking on their Nuclear Migration Spring Tour in March and April because they must.  They must bring songs of the apocalypse to you and they must encourage you to, as they say, "keep on keepin' on."  These days are often bleak but they hope to embolden you, encourage you, and place the desire within you to survive, at all costs.  

They need your help in order to embark on this journey.  Your contribution will bring Kat Jones's last album "La Rosa, La Calavera" back from the dead with new artwork and re-mastered to give you better sound fidelity in each of the songs.  It will also aid Minor Birds in releasing their new album "Hold Back All My Dark", and it will pay for the recording and releasing of a new single "Muevete" by Kat Jones in the form of a "Lava Buddy" with a digital download!  (Muevete is the first picture of what will be featured on her new album Dear Apocalypse) See incentive titled "What in the World is a 'Lava Buddy?'" to clear up your questions of what that means.  Your money will also aid us in making a world of merchandise and art to sell on the road that is interesting, compelling, and profitable (this will help them eat and also get to the next town)!

Rarely, do you get the opportunity to receive so many cool things in exchange for your wages... so feel free to look around, choose multiple incentives if you wish, and contact us if you have any questions.  We so look forward to seeing you this year!

And look out for Kat Jones's album "Dear Apocalypse" due for release in summer of 2013!!!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Our biggest risk right now, is not having the money to complete the projects we have in mind for our art table. We want to bring high quality and accessible art to you, not only in the form of your every day band merchandise, but we desire to bring you creative projects that you can take home that are pieces of art you can enjoy throughout your life. These take time, money, and a great deal of effort and labor to create for you. If we do not meet our Kickstarter goal we will have to pare the art down or go into debt to bring things to you like t-shirts and cds. Not something anyone is stoked about doing in a recession.
We do want to emphasize the fact that this is a PRE-SALE and not a "fund raiser" the way many Kickstarter packages are. We have some very fun, innovative ideas and are looking forward to crafting them for you !!

    What In The World Is A Lava Buddy?! Well, I'll tell you what it's not: it's not a pet rock, that's what it's not. A Lava Buddy is a piece of lava from Mt. St. Helens excavated by Kat Jones and placed lovingly into a box with air holes so that your buddy can breathe. His box has been specially designed and screenprinted just for this occasion, is hand signed and numbered, and he comes with a free download of Kat's new single "Muevete"! You can care for him, love him, throw him at zombies in case of an attack, or when you find yourself to be isolated in you ability to survive the apocalypse, you will still have a friend in your Lava Buddy.

    GORIGAMI! Did I mention that both Chelsea and Joel are amazing artists? Well, out of the mind of Chelsea Wilde comes Gorigami! Think origami swan or squid but dead and with skeleton printed on the paper so that when you're done folding you essentially have something that looks a lot like a pterodactyl. This particular package is special because it A) is made of limited edition black cranes specifically for this tour and B) comes with one pre-folded piece of gorigami by Chelsea Wilde herself. Just in case you want to keep your paper in the package and collect it like a comic book! Cause it's really that awesome. http://www.etsy.com/listing/116351257/gorigami-crane-pack-1-red

    La Calavera! This package will provide you with a piece of art to display in your room which has been hand made by Kat Jones! This item will also come with a free digital download of the re-mastered "La Rosa, La Calavera." Your skull will be made of plaster and designed with themes from both La Rosa, La Calavera and her album "Dear Apocalypse" which is set for release in summer of 2013! Don't think Dia De Los Muertos, think modern art on a bad ass skull. You may choose one of 4 different designs, for example: one of them will be a skull painted with chalkboard paint and arriving with 2 pieces of chalk for you to write whatever you like on it, another will be covered in newsprint from the apocalypse!

Give them two words. Verbs. Adjectives. Nouns. It does not matter. They will take those words and run them through their brain filters and whatever comes out is what you get.

    WE WILL PLAY AT YOUR HOUSE! This might be our favorite incentive because then we get to see you! We will come and play a show at your house for your family and friends! We will drive to wherever you are, set up, and play a show for you! The ONLY stipulation is that we have to be able to get to you, so we need you to provide gas money as well, and we have to figure out which date will work with the tour. If you would like to invest in this incentive please email Kat Jones at katjonesmusic@gmail.com and she will route the tour to you and give you an estimate on how much gas money will cost you as well. Also! Thanks!!! We'll be so happy to see you!
