About this project
The DVD and Live album download-
20 years ago Michael Knott dropped his second solo release, the iconic album Rocket And A Bomb! Some consider this his best work. The album is full of odd characters like Jan The Weatherman, Bubbles the Clown, and John Barrymore Jr. With heart on your sleeve lyrics and tales of Knott's personal and spiritual journey, this album hits the listener in just the right spots.
To celebrate the anniversary of this amazing album Knott and company decided to play the whole album at a one night only, full band, live show! And lucky for those that can't be there for this incredible experience, independent filmmaker Todd Zeller (Eden Z Films) will be in charge of filming the show to be released on DVD. We are also recording the audio to release a Live Album that will be a download only.
Michael Knott's band consists of a lot of people that worked on his latest couple of releases, L.S.Underground's "PTSD" and the Lifesavers "Heaven High"! Here's the line up-
Michael Knott - Vocals, Acoustic, Joshua Lory (Lifesavers/L.S.Underground) - Bass, Nick White (Lifesavers) - Drums, Rick McDonough (Struck Last May/L.S.Underground/Knott solo) - Guitar, Jafar Green - Guitar, Matt Biggers (L.S.Underground) - Guitar
One lucky fan can pick the reward of a one of a kind painting by Michael Knott that will grace the cover of the DVD. A few RAAB themed paintings will be up as rewards too!
The concert will happen November 7, 2014 at the Christ Community Church in Concord California. Dead Artist Syndrome is scheduled to open and a special set by Michael Roe (the 77's and Lost Dogs) and Derri Daugherty (The Choir and Lost Dogs) will close out the evening. See flyer above for details!
The new EP, 7" vinyl, CD, and digital options.
Michael Knott will be working once again with Joshua Lory, and Rick McDonough to record a new EP to be released on 7" vinyl! Knott, Donough, and Lory teamed up in the past to bring you L.S.Underground's brooding yet hopeful "PTSD" and the Lifesavers triumphant return, the Kickstarter fan funded "Heaven High". The EP will be at least 4 brand new Knott songs! And how awesome will it be to drop this thing on the ol' record player!?!?
Like the DVD the EP will have a one of a kind Knott painting for the cover and one lucky backer will be able to pledge this reward!
Your contribution will go to fund filming the concert, production of the DVD and EP as well as travel expenses and postage for your rewards!

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk we face is the live recording not coming out proper. If this happens we will book another venue and try again to make sure you get what you pay for!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
