Earn It Yourself is the brainchild of Sarah Saturday, singer/songwriter of Gardening, Not Architecture fame. After dropping out of college to put her focus full-time on her band, Saturday began developing the blueprint for what would become the present day Earn It Yourself (EIY) ideals. Saturday self-promoted her band, booked the band's gigs, managed their tours, released the band's music with their own money and even screen-printed their t-shirts by hand. Her laborious efforts put her in a unique situation, when the opportunity arose, to spread her knowledge and teachings as part of the EIY initiative. Saturday has decided, for the first time ever, to take EIY on tour -- a tour which will wind it's way through Phoenix this September.
The inaugural EIY Tour will be at Trunk Space Monday, September 28 with Gavin Castleton; Gardening, Not Architecture; Tugboat and a local E.I.Y. band to be named. That's right -- any local band that is a part of EIY's website/database can sign up to possibly play that night.
