Cincinnati rockers looking for help for LP No. 2
Rockin' Cincinnati group The Kickaways have taken to Kickstarter for some assistance in completing the band's sophomore long-player, currently titled Show Yr Teeth, the follow-up to the excellent (and free) debut LP, America! America! The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards' 2011 winners for Best Rock Band have songs at the ready and even picked out a studio – Michigan's Key Club, where Indie duo The Kills recorded its first two albums. The band hopes to start recording in June.The Kickaways are offering several pledge perks for those who donate to the Kickstarter drive, including handmade art from the band members, special T-shirts, CDs, a B-sides and rarities collection and your very own private concert from the band (within 130 miles of Cincinnati and, per Kickstarter, "if the cops show it's not on us please"). If you're a deep-pocketed Kickaways fan and you wanted to donate, say, $5000, the band will "pretty
much do anything you could think of as long as (it's) not illegal or (could) get
us or someone else hurt." The Kickaways are aiming to have Show Yr Teeth ready by this October. Here is the official Kickstarter video for the project. Click here for ways to donate.
