1. Fishtank Ensemble — one of the most talented bands currently in their prime, in my humble opinion — is raising money to record a new album on Kickstarter. They’re over halfway to their goal of $15,000 with nine days to go. $25 gets you a copy of their new album, and the rewards get better, all the way up to the band playing a live show in your house for you and your friends if you pledge $2000.

    They are fucking awesome. Give them money and then listen to the awesome new record that you helped make happen. Then go see them live at least once before you die.
