Update #2

Prize Update #2: A Brief View of the Hudson will write a song for YOU

Comment

You read that right; we've got a couple new incentives up on the big board:

If you pledge $40 or more, you will receive a special handmade copy of A Brief View of the Hudson's next album. And if you donate $150 or more, ABVOTH will write and record a song for you about you or whatever you want.

We put up a similar offer from Rob Paravonian yesterday, and within an hour someone snatched up one of the two available. So DO NOT sit on either of these offers. They're awesome to have for yourself, or to give as an extremely unique gift.

A Brief View of the Hudson have been the TYF! "house band" since the show's inception. They were named Manhattan's "Best Folk Duo" by the NY Press, and Time Out NY said, "A Brief View of the Hudson features Ann Enzminger's arrestingly powerful vocals, which are well tuned to the duo's graceful songs of indie-folk heartbreak."

And this is what Triumph the Insult Comic Dog had to say:
