2/9 - New Kickstarter Goal!

Posted on February 09, 2011

All we have to say is.... HOLY HECK IN A HAND MADE HAIR HANDBASKET!! 
(yeah...kind of a gross thought I guess...moving on...)

We did it, and THEN some.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

But now you've given this mouse a cookie...
Lets make it to $6,000!!!!!

We have been so blown away by all of your kindness and generosity. And now we have only 4 DAYS LEFT until the end of our Kickstarter campaign, so let’s go for it! If we can make it to $6,000 by Sunday Feb. 13th, we will be able to cover nearly all the costs of making and releasing this EP, which means it will be out much more quickly than originally planned!

And speaking of plans...
...wanna hear a secret?

Drum role please (but a secret quiet drum role...)

This EP is only one of TWO we've got up our sleeves!!!
We have this crazy idea of doing two EPs that are close cousins - the Yin and Yang of the Standards if you will...

We're gonna leave it at that for now, but more details will be coming very very soon!!

SO, back to the task at hand...
If you haven't already donated, here's your chance!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/436342287/the-spring-standards-record-an-ep

We still very much need your help and support and will love you all the more for coming through in the home stretch! If you have already donated, we love you madly, and please help us spread the word! Facebook, twitter, all that good stuff!

As a little added incentive, we want to throw a new fun prize into the mix! If we make it to $6,000 we want to give all y'all something really special on top of the treats you're already getting, and we want YOU to choose what that special thing is. So we've come up with 3 options for you to choose from:

-a 30-minute livestream concert from some weird place and we'll take live requests for the whole setlist
-a livestream of a cooking show from one of our apartments
-a 30-minute livestream Q&A with live questions

Choose which one you think would be the most fun and we want those of you who have donated to vote in the message section of our Kickstarter page before Sunday - whichever option gets the most votes, WINS! It's as simple as that! Only people who have donated are able to vote, but everybody gets to enjoy whichever option is chosen - we're all in this together after all :)

Alright, enough blabbering - lets bust out the crazy and get crackin!

Thank you everyone, and we will talk to you soon.
