Tons of bands use Kickstarter to secure funds to finish an album, but how many of them offer to take you camping and plan on donating excess funds to charity? Tempe folk rockers Bears of Manitou do, of course. (See the band's Kickstarter page.)
The band has 13 days left to reach its goal of $5,725. We took shelter from last night's haboob to chat with singer/guitarist Gabe Williams about Origins, the fundraising campaign, and the lyrics he is considering getting as a tattoo.
Bears of Manitou will debut Origins at its CD release party on Saturday, August 4 at Martini Ranch.
