Help Puro Instinct Escape from L.A. this summer with John Maus & Geneva Jacuzzi!

We're about to embark upon our 2nd U.S. tour, this time with the majorly bitchin' John Maus and Geneva Jacuzzi, and we're really stoked. The only things we're missing are gas money, a van, places to crash, and the guarantees we need to cover all these expenses. That said, we're optimistic that you might be interested in helping us scrape together the fundage to cruise your city for a night or two, and hoping that you'll accept our tokens of appreciation for helping us out on our first co-headlining tour..

Breakdown of Tour Expenses that your support would help cover:

Gas: $1,652 (approx 6,200 miles at 15/mpg = approx 413 gallons x $4 p/g)

Update!!: Van Rental- $ 3,500 approx for 1 month
