The Spence Kickstarter Project

Well this isn't the first time we have asked you to support a Kickstarter project, and it probably won't be the last. Our friends in the band Spence have had a rather traumatic year (particularly in the touring transportation department) which is detailed quite poignantly on their Kickstarter page. Now a lot of bands are taking this route to fund their projects these days and many of them have a story behind why they need the help. Spence, however, have not only a story, but videos as well, to back up the horrors they went through on tour last year. If you read their story (and watch the videos)  it will be nearly impossible for you to not want to help them. 

Like many of the projects on Kickstarter, Spence are reaching for a significant goal of raising $10,000. For any of you new to how Kickstarter works, the band will not receive any of the money raised between now and then unless they achieve that goal. They are offering up and wide range of enticing rewards for supporting their cause including early downloads of the album, your name in the credits of the physical album, online private performances, or for a pledge of $1,500 they will even perform at your house.

So let's help Spence achieve their goal. We have already made a Kickstarter pledge, so what are you waiting for?
