As you will recall, Chocolate Tiger received an invite to this year’s sxsw festival in Austin, Texas. =)
But after the initial excitement, comes the realization that it is up to each band to pay their own way. So the band is doing a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the trip, with various thank you rewards at the different pledge levels. They are off to a great start so far –
32% 34% 35% 41% 44% 46% 56% 58% of the goal has been raised! =D
