Live online show for charity!

Giving StageWe’re excited to play a live show online next Tuesday, February 25 through Giving Stage to raise money for youth musical education programs. Giving Stage is a cool new platform that lets us play for you live on the interwebs, and lets you watch from any web device, anywhere you want. To watch, you donate whatever you’d like, and we give that money to the charity of our choice.

We’ve chosen to play for Conscious Immaturity, a nonprofit that promotes music education and involvement for youth by offering music workshops and after-school music lessons for youth of all ages and levels of musicianship.

We’ll be streaming from Dave and Roxanne’s living room, and we have a special semi-acoustic set of Real Numbers tunes ready to roll. To get your ticket for our first Internet concert, go to Giving Stage and make your donation:
