From March 8th to March 17th, Wussy (CIN), The Sundresses (CIN), and Oh My Me (LEX) are going on tour to and from the 2012 South By Southwest Music Festival. The tour is called Midwest By Southwest and will showcase music from the Midwest along the way, including an official SXSW showcase hosted by The All Night Party (a music licensing and services company based in Cincinnati, OH).
This Kickstarter campaign, however, is only for Wussy, The Sundresses, and Oh My Me, but it's worth mentioning that The Whiskey Daredevils (CLE), The Seedy Seeds (CIN), and The Lions Rampant (CIN/NKY) are also a part of The All Night Party's SXSW showcase. We’ll be traveling to 9 cities in 10 days and in order to ensure we make it there and back safely, we’re reaching out to you, our friends, family, and fans, for a little help.
A trip like this is not cheap and we want to represent our region as best we can and show off how much support there is for local/regional music in the Midwest. We also want to make sure none of us dig a bigger hole in our pockets than is already there. We’ll need about $4,000 to pay for rental vans, fuel, and lodging and the money raised here will go to the three bands featured in this Kickstarter campaign to help pay for those things - and those things ONLY. Essentially, we’re asking you to buy some music, merch, and/or performances before we leave town.
We have shows scheduled in Cincinnati, OH; Columbia, MO; Kansas City, MO; San Antonio, TX; Austin, TX; Houston, TX;Bryan, TX; Little Rock, AR; and Lexington, KY; including the Official SXSW All Night Party Showcase and a slot on The Big Spill 2012 Festival.
Take a look at the Pledge Levels we’ve created and please help us show off how much great music comes from the Midwest. THANK YOU!
