Rad. Now that that's done, let us tell you what we want to do. We are planning a Spring 2011 WEST-COAST tour to celebrate the launch of the new EP. We need some startup cash to pay for gas, food, merch (t shirts) and the printing costs for CDs. The Rogue (our tour RV) gets pretty good mileage (and sleeps 5, we hope!) but the reality is that we will not make enough money playing shows to offset the cost of the tour. On a first tour like this, the goal is just to spread the music, play as many places as possible, for as many people, and have fun. For that we need your support, and will be eternally grateful.
If you like the EP, please consider donating a small amount. Or donate a little more for a cool tee-shirt, copy of the CD and other musical adventures. If we get enough friends pitching in, then we'll hopefully be seeing you soon, in your neck of the woods.
