I write this from the living room of my best friend, Whitney Williams. Around me Chelsea & Joel Wilde (of Minor Birds) are packing their things and getting the van ready for our jaunt out to San Diego to play our next show. Last night was Hotel Cafe, a beautiful space, and kind staff. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Good news! Over the last 2 days our Kickstarter was fully funded! I just wanted to thank everyone who contributed and let you know how kind it is for you to have invested in our art. The art table has been a HUGE hit. Every day we have someone coming up and playing with the typewriter or going through everything and marveling at the different pieces we have on display. That has so much to do with you and we really appreciate it!!! There’s still an hour left on the Kickstarter so if you bid last time and it slipped your mind this time around you still have a minute to do it! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/katjonesmusic/kat-jones-and-the-band-minor-birds-nuclear-migrati
So we’re 7 days in and about to migrate through the middle of the state on our way to ten whole days in Texas. Crazy. But so exciting. We can not wait to see all of you.
And yesterday marks a first for me! I spent some time at my friend Amanda Bear’s fashion design studio, working on finding and fitting me for a dress to wear for my video shoot in Austin! We’ll be working on Muevete and it was so amazing of her to loan us one of her fabulous pieces for the shoot! You can find her at http://www.Facebook.com/larkspurla – Please go and check out some of her designs. She also designs lingerie and is a wonderful person. If you came out to her house show with myself and Gayle Skidmore last year you know how amazing she is!
That is me in the studio trying the dress on
Well, we’re now in a hurry and the band is waiting for me to get my stuff together! So I should head out. But thank you again!!! You are lovely people and I can’t wait to see you!!!! More photos to come!
