This IndieGoGo project is by and for Audiometry, a Staten Island NYC based band that tickles the sonic senses! Enrico Arcaro is their front man and is the one speaking to you in the video above.
Hello fans of Audiometry and welcome to the first IndieGoGo campaign we've ever attempted. The goal of this campaign is to raise a grand total of $1,500 and give that money away to another band, namely - The Crash Kings! The total is set at $1563 to cover IndieGoGo fees. Should we raise more than the necessary funds (we're just hoping to cover the Crash Kings at this point!), they will be set aside to cover traveling to and from the venue, as well as recording and production expenses for Audiometry's unrecorded tracks and CD/MP3 packaging expenses, artwork, music videos, and everything else! If we don't reach our goal, no one gets charged and we get nothing -- so please help us reach our GOAL!!!
We know, it sounds absolutely insane, but we assure you it is not! The Crash Kings are currently trying to raise money on KickStarter to promote and create artwork and music videos for their new album entitled Dark of the Daylight. Pledging $1,500 to help out the Crash Kings will earn Audiometry the reward of opening up for them with a 45 minute set at a venue of Audiometry's choice and playing live on stage with the band as a guest.
This will translate to increased exposure for Audiometry and a chance to play a hot venue that would otherwise be quite tough to get booked for! Musicians helping musicians, lots of good music, and probably a hug from Enrico. How much better can it get?
Perks you say?
Well, it does get better! If you pledge some of your hard earned cash to help Audiometry expand their live performance horizons, we have some rewards of our own to offer! Look to the right and you'll see that every reward comes with the much coveted hug from Enrico Arcaro, Audiometry's front man. So if you're a fan of Audiometry and you like seeing them do what they do best - please consider lending a helping hand.
Audiometry in Action:
Risks and challenges
Audiometry practices and plays gigs on a regular basis in the New York City area and has been doing so for the past 5 years. There is nothing short of an act of nature that would prevent them from delivering on this IndieGoGo campaign! If we reach this IndieGoGo goal, Audiometry will immediately pledge $1,500 to the Crash Kings KickStarter project and heavily ROCK whatever NYC venue they are privileged to play in with the Crash Kings. Enrico Arcaro also promised to play his guitar just as hard as the Crash Kings will allow when he's up on stage as a guest musician. Enrico Arcaro will continue to compose and make music with or without reaching this IndieGoGo goal, because music is the way he communicates best in life.
