DIY rock legend R. Stevie Moore is going on his first WORLD TOUR this summer with Tropical Ooze. WE NEED GAS MONEY, Y'ALL.

For more information, check out

This past January, Kickstarter nation helped get R. Stevie out of the house and into the studio.  With the FANtastic momentum, R. Stevie is looking now to get out of the studio and into to your town!

He will be joined in his crusade by bad boy Brooklyn backing band Tropical Ooze ( and documentary filmmakers Jon Demiglio and Tricia Gray (


As this is RSM's first tour, we are looking to make it run as smoothly as possible.  Simply put, we need your donations to help with our transportation.  We'll be eating bologna sandwiches and sleeping on spare couches most nights... which is fine!  But without gas, a van, and a few plane tickets, there is no tour.
