People forget sometimes that musicians are real people, and that honestly their jobs are not easy. It seems easy when they're rocking out on stage, or signing autographs but the process to get to those incredible moments is quite the challenge. Just getting off the ground is among the hardest parts of the job, and with something like that, they really need help.
Mindset Evolution, a very talented rock band from Peoria, IL has a goal to set up a tour and get to go all over to see their fans. Problem is, they need to raise the funds to do so and time is running out. They need a vehicle in order to do this, and other funds just to support it. They have started a Kickstarter, in an attempt to raise $10,000 so they can make this possible. The fundraiser ends Christmas eve, and they still have quite a long way to go. Its still possible though, because every little bit counts.
To some they might just be another band, but Immortal Music got to see and meet these guys at Uproar 2012 and was very impressed by them. They deserve more attention, as do thousands of other bands out there. You can support them all, just by spreading the word. Or you can donate, if you feel you are capable of it. Even just talking about it and helping bring the cause to people's attention could seriously help.
Everyone has a dream, right? Everyone deserves to make their dreams become reality, and if you can help someone make their's become a reality -why wouldn't you?
If nothing else, at least check out Mindset Evolution. They have their own website, and are on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and iTunes. Their Kickstarter, for those who are interested can be found here. There is a video from their singer, Rob, explaining it all on the Kickstarter page, as well as on Facebook.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
