Yes they are a bit controversial at the moment, but no one is forcing anyone to donate. 

Here's a couple of interest that are going down to the wire.

Ramesh from Voxtrot is raising funds for a new record

Think that was a reference to my comment in the other thread about how I'm tired of seeing bands using kickstarter just to pre-sell their album at significantly jacked-up prices.

Some bands do kickstarter really well, offering their fans unique/exclusive/unusual items.  Other bands really miss the point-- sorry, but an autographed copy of a your album is probably not worth fifty bucks.

I'm not opposed to kickstarter in general, just disappointed in how many bands choose to use it.

(and don't forget the Tower one...)

any bands that I know that have done it, their drive has ended. One I liked best - Val Emmich - he had the best value and perks per the dollar/grouping. For thank you section in his cd inlet it was a city map and everyone's name was a street. Some artists jump too high in their dollar amount per the perk, or too low in perk per the dollar amount, I agree.

I've contributed to quite a few kickstarter campaigns - most of them for games.

Here is one for the DC area too - Salad Days - the birth of punk rock in DC (i feel like there have been several of these already)

Some cool things in the list. I like the 3 days touring with the band and being in the chorus.  And for 10k they will play your private event.

Quote
The definitive documentary about influential 80?s and 90?s guitar bands who harnessed massively loud sounds using a sea of effects pedals and delivered some of the most BEAUTIFUL NOISE ever recorded.

8 years in the making, with over 50 interviews, band members, music icons and tastemakers.

BEAUTIFUL NOISE is an in-depth exploration of a music movement in the late 20th century, a fascinating period when some innovative musicians mixed guitar noise into conventional pop song structures while maintaining a philosophy of letting the music speak for itself.

Although many of the people interviewed are notoriously press shy they have opened up about their music and experiences from over 20 years ago; how they defied the rules and became sonic innovators that have inspired so many.

Currently the documentary is in the final stages for worldwide release, and we need your help to raise the $75,000 to pay for limited run licensing and finishing costs to distribute in Film Festivals and on DVD/Blu-Ray.

This documentary will finally be released only if the fans of this music believe in this project and contribute.

    INTERVIEWS INCLUDE: Kevin Shields, Jim Reid, Robin Guthrie, Bobby Gillespie, Douglas Hart, Colm O?Ciosoig, Debbie Googe, Simon Raymonde, Alan Moulder, Ivo Watts-Russell, Alan McGee, Sonic Boom
    FEATURING BAND MEMBERS OF: Ride, Slowdive, Chapterhouse, Lush, Curve, Swervedriver, Medicine, Pale Saints, Seefeel, AR Kane, Telescopes, Boo Radleys, Cranes, Catherine Wheel, Flying Saucer Attack
    WITH: Wayne Coyne, Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan and Robert Smith
    Score by Brad Laner (Medicine)
    VFX by John Nugent (Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Matrix)
    Motion Graphics by Angus Cameron (Music Video Director)
    Graphic design by Timothy O'Donnell (4AD)
    Featuring Tour Projections, Bootlegs and previously unseen personal videos.
    Performance Videos (and some interviews) with current bands: Sigur Ros, M83, Autolux, Serena Manessh, Ulrich Schnauss, A Place To Bury Strangers, Grouper, Tim Hecker, Belong among others.

This is your chance to be a part of this definitive documentary.

WHY KICKSTARTER? Ultimately we think Kickstarter is the best place for crowdfunding artistic and indie projects like ours. It is a democratizing force that brings projects to life.  This documentary is for fans of this music and music culture.  The prohibitive licensing costs have kept us from releasing our film but with Kickstarter's unique crowdfunding structure we can make Beautiful Noise available to the people who want to see it, provided enough people make a pledge.

STATUS ? We are in post-production. The project is creatively finished; we are waiting for the go-ahead from you (the prospective viewer) to fund the massive amount of money required for necessary clearances that make a unique film like ours complete.

This is the first-ever documentary about one of the most influential music movements of the 20th century.

The true inside story of these bands in their own words, with concert and video footage, home videos, tour projections, interviews and testimonials.

This is the film fans have been waiting years for.
