I estimated the minimum amount I needed to put on a show based on my experience putting shows on in Seattle with my current network of resources. I then added 10% to over the Kickstarter and Amazon Payments fees.
$500 is going to purchasing the equipment required to perform my original music live. I need a looper, something like the DigiTech JamMan Stereo, vocal effects and a few odds and ends.
$100 is going to self publishing the live album in the same way I've published Songs of Leaving -- top quality printing and burning at home.
The other $1400 is going to the venue rental and advertising.
Other aspects of the show, like the photography and video recording, are leveraged based on existing relationships I have with other artists, and paying them out from the door.
Anything above and beyond the $2200 goal will be put into making for a cooler show. So please keep tweeting and sharing! The more money I have the more of my resource I can apply and the more amazing this project will be.
