Donating to OEB
While I realize there are many places that you should donate money to more than a SXSW music website these days, I recently received a couple inquiries on how some of our dedicated fans can help the cause. I’ve been thinking about it as the digital equivalent of buying me a beer. I don’t make a dime off of this project and am not associated with any publications - this is purely a passion project that became something bigger. With just under 30,000 followers on Tumblr, it is rewarding in and of itself to feel like I have a small pocket of ownership when it comes to recommending new artists to your playlists.
- That being said, I’d hate to collect for nothing. We’ll reward any donation, from a buck-fifty to a bazillion dollars, with an OEB SXSW 2013 Package, which includes:a hard copy and digital copy of our top secret OEB SXSW 2013 Showcase/Day Party Guide, featuring a breakdown by time of all the best showcases and individual acts each day. This is my personal roadmap while I’m in Austin and it is awesome. This will also include popularity ratings (how crowded will it be and when?) and, of course, our Operation Every Band scores. This will be delivered no later than one week before the conference.
- the OEB Mixtape - featuring our favorite artists for the trip down to Austin.
- Stickers, Thank You Notes and other goodies and surprises!
Since Pay Pal can be somewhat cryptic, I just ask that you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and the preferred email address you wish to receive you digital copy of our OEB SXSW Guide after you donate, if you wish to contribute.
Thanks again for all the kind words of response over the years. Just taking the time to write a few words is greatly appreciated and we’re glad we can help make your SXSW (or just music exploration in general) the best it can be.
