File Under: Why People Get Bad Impressions of Kickstarter

Posted by - 03:52 PM on 05/22/12
Former Play for Keeps bassist Cash Colligan has started a Kickstarter to bring his friend, former The Cab drummer Alex Johnson, to Las Vegas so he can play drums in a new band. They're looking for $1,000, and according to the project description, "It would make ZERO sense to not have Alex Johnson become a part of this project that WILL CHANGE MUSIC. He knows nothing about this project, though I'm sure when we go live it will be hard to keep the secret." For pledging $100, you can get a whopping email and three tweets from Alex. We've had plenty of Kickstarter debates on this website - where do you think this falls in the spectrum of Kickstarter's niche and usefulness in the music industry?

Hey guys, I just ran out of grass and I'm starting a kickstarter to get another zip so I can get high all day.

Cool? Cool.

Edit: 1000 isn't that much money. Why doesn't the cab just fucking pay for it?

A couple things here:

1) This is quite possibly one of the stupidest kickstarters I've ever seen. I'm shocked I didn't see for a $5000 donation, Alex will let you wipe his ass.

2) Tom changed music forever with AVA. I don't care to see music changed forever again, especially by a guy that didn't make it big to epic proportions to begin with and has had to resort to kickstarter just to get a drummer.

Bands need to learn the difference between when to use a kickstarter and when to use a "donate to me so I can do something stupid" page. It'll solve 99% of this shit.
