Dept. of Musical Pimping

Wellthen

That's not a misspelling; that's the name of the band that my beloved FB plays in, writes for, and enjoys a whole lot.

He and his bandmates have been working their tails off to put together a high quality debut album. And that takes money. So, like many a millennial  band before them, they've taken to Kickstarter to get the $5,000 necessary to put it out there.

They created a very funny video explaining what they're doing.  I get a kick out of it, even after seeing it several times (possibly because Andy wrote much of it, and does the voiceover, I'm compelled to admit.) Why not take a look, and a listen? I'd tell you to look for the good looking man with the beard, but they all have beards in most of the video, so that's no help. But at the start of the video, in the still, he's the one without a beard, in the short-sleeved purple tee. (And there's a scene in the video where you see a man and a woman talking to each other in the foreground; that's him, and his beloved Emily.)

It may not be your kind of music. And there are certainly a lot more important things to put your money into these days. But if it tickles your fancy or your funny-bone, and if you'd like to help them out, I'd be delighted. And so would they.

ETA: after fighting with LJ's coding, which simply will NOT let me embed the video, despite LJ telling me it's embedded, I'll just direct everyone to the link I put in the second paragraph, which will take you directly to their web page. Sigh

ETA 2: Thanks to my beloved BB, we can actually now embed the video here, via YouTube - you still have to go to their Kickstarter page if you want to donate, though.

Nothing happens when I click the video.

Argh. Stupid LJ, not accepting a Dreamwidth vid... just click on the link I put in the second paragraph. That should take you directly to their Kickstarter page, rather than simply trying to click on the apparently non-working embed. Let me know!

As I said to maruad, "Stupid LJ, not accepting a Dreamwidth vid crosspost. *grumbles*"

But you should be able to go to their actual Kickstarter page via the link I put in the second paragraph. Would that work? Let me know - and yes, if you wanted to pimp that way, that would be very cool!

Is it okay to link their kickstarter page in my facebook? Redneck alert: Many of my relatives think the Sun newspapers are a bit left wing.

You betcha! I don't mind: I've pimped it on my FB page, and I have Libertarian friends. Music sometimes surpasses such boundaries.
