Ladies and Gentlemen, one last time I am bringing this to your attention, because this fine organization who is so instrumental in supporting great local music could really use some support from all of you right now.
There is now less than one day remaining in this fundraising campaign. If you have been waiting until the last minute, THIS IS IT. Don’t put it off until tomorrow (Friday), because the deadline is 5am tomorrow morning. As of the time I am posting this, they have only raised approximately HALF of their original goal. That leaves less than twenty-four hours to make up the other half!
For those unfamiliar with exactly how Kickstarter works, you don’t need to worry if maybe you don’t get paid until tomorrow and you’ve been trying to wait until then to send in your donation. This is just a pledge, you aren’t paying anything yet, until after the deadline has passed.
Note: If the pledge drive doesn’t meet its goal before the deadline, it will fail, no money will change hands at all, and the terrorists will have won. We can’t let that happen.
So get to clicking: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/240758996/iron-atrocity-v2, and show your support for local music. Please, if you have anything to spare — $10, $5, even $1 — it all adds up. But do it now, there is no more time to put it off any longer.

You might remember I talked about this project before — back in November I posted about some upcoming Molasses Barge shows which included a benefit show in Decmeber to support the Iron Atrocity v.2 compilation.
If you don’t remember, Iron Atrocity is a digital download (available free by visiting www.ironatrocity.com) or CD compilation (I do not know if any copies are still available, but it was given out for free at shows associated with Innervenus or any of the bands on the CD) which highlights some of the best in Pittsburgh-area metal music today.
Well, the second compilation in the series is currently in the works, and the folks at Innervenus are trying to raise a little extra capital to get this thing off the ground…
