Kickstarter is a funding platform for all kinds of projects. Anyone who wants to raise money for a project can use it to fund the project, and usually get cool rewards.
Get Busy Committee is making a vinyl picture disc for “I Don’t Care About You” / “Say Whaaat?” From anywhere in the world, if you pledge money to the project (AKA help pay to get it made), you’ll get cool stuff (including the picture disc with the songs). The top 100 people to pledge $50 get a phone call from GBC.
What makes this special, you say? It contains three unreleased tracks including one written/recorded for this promotion ABOUT one of the purchasers. It was a pledge of $1000 to get that special prize…and someone bought it immediately. Pretty cool…but only if the project gets fully funded. In other words, they need GBC fans to pledge to get the project done.
If you’re a GBC fan, go to the link below to pledge (it’s not like you don’t get anything–it seems like everyone will get something, I think). I hope this thing goes all the way…I want to hear what kind of song these guys will write about their “biggest fan.” HA
And BTW, if you’re going to SXSW, Get Busy committee is playing.
