One Million DollarsPosted in General
With about 35 hours to go, indie darling Amanda Palmer has surpassed ONE MILLION dollars in her fan funded kick starter campaign. A brief excerpt from Hypebot below; check out the rest in A&R 101.
"You have to have fans before you can ask them to help you," reminded Palmer in her own critique of Kickstarter and her campaign. But after spending years developing and getting to know her fanbase, Palmer had the skill to motivate them on multiple levels with this single campaign. Beyond just appealing for help, Palmer's Kickstarter is about a new record release, an art book, a tour that includes private shows for small groups of supporters and more.
