Hello Neil Gaiman friends,
Some of you may already know about Torrent Engine 18--myself and my partner E. Stephen Frederick (curator of the Empire S.N.A.F.U. Restoration Project) are rehabilitating an old Boston firehouse into a mecca of underground art.
More info here - Boston Phoenix - "Out of the rubble: Torrent Engine 18, Boston's new art space"
Now, I can finally draw back the velvet curtain and reveal the secret performers for our Kickstarter GALA PARTY:
Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer
The GALA PARTY will take place in a Boston location disclosed only to backers (note: NOT the Torrent Engine 18 firehouse) on Friday, December 21st, 2012, aka MAYAN DOOMSDAY.
On the official Last Day on Earth, you will be sure to enjoy decadent music, mystery readings, and ritual burlesque while sipping fresh-fruit-infused libations by Booze Époque in a grand ballroom. If we are all going down, we are going down IN STYLE.
Want to go? Make sure you have pledged one of the select $125 (or more) rewards (you can alter your pledge up until November 30th). Please read the reward carefully to make sure you are picking the right one (it will contain the phrase "GALA PARTY"). You will also receive an Empire SNAFU/Torrent Engine 18 T-shirt, a webpage thank you, an Empire S.N.A.F.U. card, and downloadable music. There are very limited guest spots (less than 200). Guest spots for the GALA PARTY will ONLY be available through this Kickstarter--no tickets will be sold at the door.
For the financially blessed, we have a personal theater experience to be performed by a bevy of Boston's most well-known burlesque dancers--a tribute befitting the Apocalypse. Pick one of $200+ rewards that contains the phrase "personal theater experience." Again, please read the reward carefully to make sure you are picking the right one (some of the higher-level rewards do not include a gala spot).
EVERY PENNY of profit from this Kickstarter goes directly into the Torrent Engine 18 firehouse restoration.
Reserve your gala guest spot spot here:
Katrina Galore aka Katherine Bergeron of Torrent Engine 18
So a lot of people are telling me that they really wanted to go to the Gala Party, but didn't hear about it in time/didn't get their paycheck in time/they couldn't navigate the Kickstarter website/their relative or sweetheart now wants to buy tickets as a gift, etc.
There are a few tickets left, so if you or your friends want one, go get 'em via Brown Paper Tickets!
Amanda Palmer & Neil Gaiman do Mayan Doomsday/Gala Party benefit for Torrent Engine 18
Note: in contrast to the Kickstarter offer, these gala tickets have a small service fee, and do not include the Kickstarter rewards of Empire SNAFU/Torrent Engine 18 T-shirt, webpage thank you, Empire SNAFU card, or music.
These WILL sell out, so make haste if you want one!
