Would you believe there are bands today that have absolutely no web presence? In this day and age?

You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

Help us meet our monthly goal:
Surf music is alive no matter what Jimi Hendrix said...
"Reverb Junkies" is a high-energy feature film documenting the current surf music scene in southern California. Shot over the course of the summer of 2010, "Reverb Junkies" takes you inside this little known sub-genre of Rock and Roll. This documentary introduces you to some of the people playing the fastest, hottest instrumental music around and to the rabid fans of all ages who can't get enough.
Executive Producer/Director Steve Seagren, along with Producer Alan Altur, Producer Tony Dimond and Producer/Director of Photography Steve Gelder shot almost 200 hours of live performances and interviews with some of the best surf music bands from southern California and the world, including The Ghastly Ones, The Dynotones, The Space Cossacks, Surfside IV, Thee Swank Bastards and Szandora, Wadadli Riders from Antigua, Space Rangers from Germany, The Tequila Worms, Creepy Creeps, CHUM, Jason Lee and the R.I.P.Tides, Exene Cervenka from X, Dominic Priore (author of 'Pop Surf Culture'), Tiki Tena, surf radio hosts Clint Beachwood and Cousin Mary, Glasgow Tiki Shakers, Pyronauts, Kelp, Pollo Del Mar, and many, many more.
We are currently entering the post-production phase of our project, and we are looking for funds to complete the editing, color correction and a sound mix, as well as for some festival entry fees, press kits, etc. All of this adds up quickly, and in order to complete the movie properly, we feel we need to raise at least $10,000 with this Kickstarter campaign - so, here we go!
We have some great items available to those who choose to participate at various levels (DVDs, t-shirts, posters, etc. - check them out over there to the right...), and we've even opened up three (3) Associate Producer credits. These will be a unofficial title only (you don't get to put your buddy's surf band in the movie, sorry), but your name will appear in the credits of the movie and with the film on the official Internet Movie Data Base (imdb.com). Also, as an Associate Producer, you will receive updates on when and where "Reverb Junkies" is playing at various film festivals, and occasional invitations to some of these screenings (transportation and lodging not included).
If you'd like to contribute without getting anything in return, you have that option, too. Thanks from all of us involved with "Reverb Junkies" for checking out our Kickstarter profile, and when you eventually see our movie, PLAY IT LOUD!
