Kickstarter campaigns can be a wonderful means of fundraising, especially when your target donor audience is on the functioning half of the digital divide. In preparation for their first coast-to-coast U.S. tour, the punk duo Slutever has just launched a Kickstarter campaign in the hopes of raising a minimum of $2,000 to help them fund their venture. Unlike other bands that would promise to reward donors with the standard t-shirt or record, Slutever offers an extensive and creative variety of gifts for pretty much every donation level imaginable (in addition to digital copies and 7” of their latest release, Pretend To Be Nice).

Among the most intriguing offers are:

  • Personalized SLUTEVER rolling papers, with a mandatory $4.20 donation.
  • For a mere $50, the band offers anyone in the tri-state area a scandalous night of bowling and nachos.
  • Postcard updates from various cities with tales of crazy tour antics for $75 donations
  • A seventh-grade style mall-cruising date in the city of your choice (for those non-tri-state people) at the $100 level

As the ladies plea on Slutever’s website: “WE KNOW YOU ARE JUST AS POOR AS US, BUT WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!!!! Any donation is tremendously appreciated. TELL ALL YOUR RICH FRIENDS ABOUT IT.”

To help Slutever out and get some really personal thank you’s in return, visit their Kickstarter here. The SLUTEVER DO AMERICA tour lasts from July 1 through August 19. Slutever will also be performing at The Barbary with the Coathangers on June 23. —Danielle Wayda
