Donate To Our Kickstarter

To get Ugly Whale off the ground, Barb Rocks has bought into a popular venue in Austin for $3500. In order to recoup that cost and to grow Ugly Whale into a travelling showcase, Barb Rocks launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise monies. This campaign ends the morning of March 19th and is currently only 70% funded, so we need your help! If you’re a supporter of music, especially unsigned Bay Area music, please donate what you can and spread the word. There’s many cool music related rewards you can choose from, especially from the bands playing the Austin showcase, as well as from the bands Barb Rocks manages, and some cool life style rewards like Winery Tour, Chess, Bocce Ball, and Dinner Parties.
