Hey there! Dan Abbott here. Sorry for the mass email, but I'm trying to let every dang person in the world know about a fundraising thing I'm doing for my band, Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits.
We've been going full-speed ahead for four years now and after accomplishing a tremendous amount of recording, touring, music videos and assorted shenanigans, we've hit a wall; the workload and expenses are, at this point, an existential crisis for the band.
And just when we've built up the kind of momentum that a band needs to succeed. We've got books coming out with major distribution, bigger and better shows, and a whole lot of other opportunities coming our way. But we recently had to cancel our East Coast tour and are currently on hiatus, doing a lot of soul searching about how to make this band work without squishing us flat. Part of getting back on our feet (and back on the road) is why we're reaching out.
Anyhow, if you can help spread the word, please share this link anywhere you can:http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bobby-joe-ebola-needs-your-help/x/3552638?c=home
Obviously, if you can contribute financially, that would be awesome, and we've got a ton of cool prizes to motivate you, including books from Microcosm Publishing, records from Selfish Satan and Dirt Cult Records, and a ton of other stuff. But at this point, if each one of you shares this link, on your Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Reddit, YouTube, Instagram, Vine, Tumblr, anywhere you can think of, that would be awesome!
Anyhow, thanks a bunch for reading this far, and sorry for invading your inbox. I hope this email finds you in good health and good spirits. Thanks,
