Here’s a wee dash of an update on all things Bonzai.
Yesterday marked the first “official” Glass Apple Bonzai band rehearsal. Which basically means that Steve came over and we jammed a few tunes, ate some food, made fun of each other, and talked about how awesome all our gear is.
We got through the first half of the set without our brains exploding, so I say that’s a good sign.
And like a slap in the face with a frozen piece of pepperoni pizza the Great Funding Quest of 2014! is still well underway and doing quite well. There’s 19 days left and it’s at almost $900 of the $2000 goal.
That’s pretty whiz-bang!
The album is still in the mastering phase, and as of yesterday all the album artwork is done. And as of today the first batch of super-mega-rare custom T-shirts are being schemed over by the illustrious and poorly illustrated Ethan Moseley of Promonium Jesters (also the drummer for Defence Mechanism).
Here’s a link to the Indiegogo campaign:
After getting the album back all fresh’n’mastered the first order of business will be to send out an order for CD’s, and to send out the order for the special edition cassette tapes (which are super rad, btw), and of course work on all the special things for the various contributors (incredibly awesome and important people).
If contributions keep coming in the way they have been then everything will work out just fine. We’re still looking at it being until almost the 1st of May before everything is complete, but that’s perfect timing to be prepared for our performance at Kinetik Festival 2014*
*a note to all those attending Kinetik this year that if you’ve contributed you can pick up your packages directly from me at Kinetik if you so desire
Also, I mentioned on mein Facebook page that I sent out and order for stickers.
Well, these are the stickers I ordered. Fancy, no?
Well, it’s time for me to go back to getting things done.
Thanks for all the help and support so far, it means a great deal!
