Patreon changes

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to make a quick journal post about some upcoming changes to Patreon. These are changes that are going to make it even better for everyone. So rapid fire:

  1. EVERY tier will get access to livestreamed podcasts and other appropriate shows. (Ask us anything, some rehearsals, etc.) This is going to be contingent on a stable internet connection.
  2. The $50 and $25 tier are no more. They are now $15 and $25.
  3. The $10 Tier is getting access to concert footage (formerly at the $25 level)... so time to upgrade that $5.
  4. $15 and $20 are getting VIP tickets to shows (1 show for $15, and 2 shows for $20). Details to that include but are not limited to things like reserved seating (on request), green room access, bring a friend free, a swag bag (signed poster, and other stuff).

There are more details on the Patreon page, but what for this to roll out this weekend, and a video talking a bit more about it soon. 

Don't forget to get your tickets for the September show. BUY TICKETS!

September funding drive, what, why, and how.

Hello internet!

So this September we are running a little funding drive, the point behind it is what it says, raise some money to allow us to do some pretty cool stuff this year. So what is coming from this drive? Well we are going to start working our already overworked editor to edit more podcasts, videos etc. So what do you get if you donate? Well we are running this through our Patreon page, so first you get access to all the rewards there. In addition, this month we are giving away some swag as follows.

  • $5 dollars monthly or one time donations = Stickers (check out our twitter header, that is one of them)

  • $10 dollars monthly or one time donations = Stickers, and pins. 

  • $25 dollars monthly or one time donations = Stickers, pins, and a T-shirt

As well, we have some goals for one time donations (cumulative for the month) for example if we hit a measly $25 in monthly donations we will write and record a ringtone for the whole world. At $75 we will compose, accompany, and produce a poetry battle video.

There are lots of other things coming this next month so make sure you subscribe to us on YouTube and watch our Twitter account.

Also if you are a current Patreon donor, we are going to hook you up with all the above stuff (if you donate at that level, PLUS we will send all our current Patreon donors something super secret since we super love you all)

Head here and follow your path to donate


First journal entry. New things, exciting things

Hello internet!

So this is my first journal entry I wanted to go over super quick some things that are going on on this website. First off, the website this last year was an interesting thing, it was never setup to be a dedicated marketing tool and as the year went on we cobbled elements of our "community" onto it. As we added projects like podcasts, and new digital content like meet the ensemble, and a few other exciting things in the works it made sense to start to set something up that could be a landing page for community, and us to interact. Enter the community page, and ensemble journals.

Now, running a blog, digital content, website, ensemble, etc... is madness far to much formality and curation. Then, at the end of the day you don't get to know us, and we never get a chance to know y'all. So these journals are wonderful uncurated mini-blogs. I am sure some of us will use them more, and some less. We will start rolling them out in batches as we get the back end of things up and running. I love squarespace.. but this is a pain in the you know what to implement.. so, patience.

So of our digital content you will see about 60% of it here, for free... but a big 40% of it is going to be reserved for our Patreon members, so if you aren't part of that yet... catch the wave. I will make it easy... just click on that link. 

Talk soon, much work to be doing to get this project up and running!
