We reported a couple days ago the Kickstarter project of former Play for Keeps bassist Cash Colligan, where Colligan originally said he wanted to bring his friend, former The Cab drummer Alex Johnson, to Las Vegas to play in a new band. The Kickstarter page has changed - Colligan says the $1,000 will now be used for both record and to make a pitch for a reality TV show - and you can read a piece of the new description below.
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?
Play For Keeps (Cash Colligan of The Cab's new band) will be playing a showcase in Los Angeles at the Roxy on Saturday, May 28th. You can download the first single off their upcoming EP called "Just Like the Movies" on iTunes.
