Help Two Bands With Tucson Ties Leave the State

Posted By on Thu, Apr 26, 2012 at 4:00 PM

There's part of me that rejects the very nature of the Faster Than Light/Young Mothers Kickstarter project, since it will take two musicians I really like out of the state I still live in, but I suppose it's probably better that they chase their dreams, share their music with a larger audience, try to make it big, etc.

Our names are Nate Jasensky (of Faster Than Light) and Zach Toporek (of Young Mothers). We've been playing music in Tucson and Phoenix for all of our lives, and now we've decided it's time to take a risk and try something new. Something pretty big. And we wouldn't be musicians if we didn't try to make a record out of it.

But not just any type of record.

The idea is to record and film a multimedia album on our tour from Tucson, AZ to New York City. We're moving from Arizona to New York to play music in the big city, and we're honing our craft along the way.

We plan on finding a unique, non-traditional performance space in every city we stop in and filming a performance of a new song or a new arrangement of some of our existing material. Upon our arrival in NYC, we'll be editing the audio and video, interspersing it with footage we film along the way, and creating a document of our voyage and of who we are as musicians at this pivotal point in our lives.

Their Kickstarter runs until May 21st and the promotional incentives include t-shirts, mixtapes (complete with cologne), personalized YouTube videos and other fun stuff. Check it out.
