For those of you who are unfamiliar, National Underground is a website that films and records live sets of your favorite punk rock bands and posts them for free online. Some of the bands we've worked with include Against Me!, None More Black, Dillinger Four, Paint It Black, Dead To Me, Small Brown Bike, Avail, and many many more. See some of the videos and download some of the recordings here.
This year we're making the trip to Harvest Of Hope Fest with our crew to endure 3 packed days of filming, audio recording, and, if we have time, partying. Last year was a huge success and resulted in a lot of our recordings being added to this year's Harvest Of Hope Compilation CD. The draw back of doing all of our work for free is that the funding for equipment, travel costs, and more rests on us. Though the entire crew is made up of volunteers, we'd like to make sure they're fed and have somewhere to stay while working for the weekend.
Our fundraising goal is $1,000 which we will split with the Harvest Of Hope foundation who sponsors the festival. In exchange for donations, we'll be giving away unreleased material, t-shirts, CDs, tickets, and more. We really appreciate any help you can give us and we hope to see you at Harvest Of Hope!
To sweeten the pot, our friends over at Fat Wreck have donated extra goodies for our fundraiser. Anyone who donates funds will be entered to win one of the following:
