Default Kickstarter Attempts

I cam across this site called kickstarter that helps artists of all types get funding for projects. I figured that, since there were a lot of young, aspiring drummers in equally aspiring bands, I would share this link with the forum.

Basically, you put up a profile, put up some packages that you think would interest fans and others, and set a date/money goal you want to reach. If its unsuccessful, the money goes back to the fans and you get nothing.

For a more in depth look at the site, check out my profile here:

My nephew's band, The Zut Alors, did a Kickstarter fund-raiser for their new LP (!) and got it funded and then some. Very cool.

Its a very cool site indeed. Were having some trouble getting past this plateau, but its way better than handing over your rights, music, and livelihood to a failing record company.

Really good website, but for the US only. For UK and EU based musicians and creators, check out WWW.SPONSUME.COM

Awesome!
