I think most of their paycheck went to fixing the set

Dear London, let’s make this show happen. (TICKETS)
In 2011 I started pre-selling shows on Kickstarter. I sold tickets to concerts before I even booked them, ensuring an audience for myself and the venue before I did any of the heavy lifting. The idea made so much sense that I got a ton of press: BoingBoing, BBC’s World Service, CNN, and more. But the logistics were… tricky. Fast forward two years later and Songkick launches Detour - a way for fans to help bring the musicians they love to wherever there is enough demand to see them play (London only for now, but there are plans to expand once London proves the concept.)
I LOVE performing - it is essential to me. But being a truly DIY artist means I don’t have the cash flow required to tour at a loss until things pick up. Detour is the perfect solution for me to play a London show.
Fans pledge to buy tickets to come see me. Once enough tickets are pledged Detour will find a promoter who will take care of the logistics and then the show is booked and confirmed. Fans who pledge for tickets are only charged after the show is confirmed for a date they can make it to.
If you want to see me play in London (or the UK at all) this is the way of the very near future.
I need about 50 more pledges to make it onto the leader board and confirm a show. London, let’s do this thing.

I’m wearing the @impossiblegirl! Probably shouldn’t have ordered this size because it looks a bit like a dress but it’s an AWESOME shirt!
