Update #6

IT'S ALIIIIIIVE!

Comment

This is our favorite update ever-- can you guess why?

THE SITE IS LIVE!

For launch day we've put together a mix of some of our favorite tracks from the past few months, a group piece ("Things We Hate About Music Blogging"), a new Airbird track, and an essay from Liturgy's Hunter Hunt-Hendrix on the changing face of counterculture. We've got a lot more cooking, so stay tuned.

Once again, many thanks to all who have been supportive to us in these last few months. Whether you donated to the Kickstarter, helped us out with rewards, or simply checked it out and dropped a well wish, we want you to know that your efforts have not been in vain. 

We're so thrilled we can share a taste of what's to come and hope you enjoy it!

Update #4: We Did It!

Comment

Hey,

WE DID IT!

And we couldn't have done it without your generosity, enthusiasm, and support. Since reaching our Kickstarter goal, we've been pushing hard to prepare Ad Hoc for launch and finalize some exciting events at SXSW, and we didn't want you to think we forgot about you.

Our success in raising money for Ad Hoc means so much more than we could reasonably describe in one thank you email. And even more than the campaign, we're excited to bring this vision to life and start writing.

Right now, we're en route to SXSW via NRMAL festival in Monterrey, Mexico, where we co-presented a pre-party last Friday featuring Gatekeeper/Thunderhorse, Pictureplane, and surprise guests Teengirl Fantasy. Still, we wanted to let you know that your rewards are safe, sound, and on their way into your hands. The items you pledged for will begin arriving in the month designated for each reward amount on our Kickstarter page, and continue arriving in staggered fashion as they become available. The digital compilation, record bundles, and flirty texts will arrive within the month of March, for example, whereas your t-shirts and compilation box sets will arrive in April, and the first issue of the zine, in May. Phone conversations, DJ nights, and commissioned think pieces will be scheduled directly with you guys, so be on the lookout for an email from us, if you haven’t received one already. 

Please stay tuned over the next couple of days for an announcement regarding our SXSW activities. In the meantime, please feel free to email us at info@adhoc.fm if you have any questions. 

The love you guys have shown us has been truly inspiring to behold, and we can't wait to pay tribute to it for years to come. 

All our very best,

The Ad Hoc Family
