Sassafrass is delighted to announce the launch of our Kickstarter! Our Balticon concert is coming up soon (next Sunday, the 26th, dude), and we're very much hoping to raise money for all the awesome things we intend to do with it: produce and release the CD we've been working on all year, make a DVD of the concert (which, for those just joining our show, will be a two-hour, fully-staged, fully-costumed opera which brings together all fourteen current members of Sassafrass from all across the country, and tells the Norse myth cycle of the creation of the universe, the death of Baldur, and the coming of Ragnarok), pay for the costumes, props, transportation, hotel fees and so forth without staying utterly in debt, and so forth!
This is something we've been working towards... well, in some ways, since last year when Balticon asked us to be their Musical Guests of Honor and Featured Filkers. But in other ways, we've been working towards this since 2008 when Ada first started writing Sundown. It's been a long trip, and anything you can do to get us to this goal would be wonderfully helpful. Any little bit helps-- our lowest level is just $1, for which you get to be Ratatosk the squirrel that runs up and down the World Tree, and we'll thank you on our website.
We are very excited! And I am therefore begging shamelessly! Please please please please please help us do this awesome thing!
