I just donated to the next album for Hoots and Hellmouth (http://twitter.com/hootshellmouth), one of my favorite bands.
They want to put out another great album, without a label, and as many bands are doing, turned to their fans for help. And to organize it all, they are using the project funding too Kickstarter http://kck.st/bfJiJx.
I am loving some of the things getting attention via Kickstarter. It is a killer platform. This just makes it even more special.
They needed $6,000. They have $21,000+ as of this writing. Pretty cool right?
Some other things I noticed. Of there almost 200 supports, they are averaging $100+ per person. They have over 13 fans that donated $1,000 and up.
Check out their Kickstarter page http://kck.st/bfJiJx to see how their passionate fans responded, their creative incentive packages, and how they kept the energy going once they reached their first goal.
