Okay, who all was there for the first day of Spacehog’s much anticipated PledgeMusic drive?
One of a kind Hog memorabilia, autographed CDs, shirts, and downloads were being snapped up like boxes of Twinkies when Hostess went under. By the end of the day, most everything was gone, save for downloads and CDs of the new album, new shirts, a few autographed singles, and some of the higher ticket items (which would surely be gone if I could figure out where to sell one of my kidneys).
As I write this, there have been 132 pledges bringing the fund raising total to 99% of their goal met within the first 24 hours. Of course, it’s not too late to lend a hand in helping the guys release and promote their forthcoming album ‘As It Is On Earth,” and to get your paws on some of the remaining Spacehog treasure.
Click the above link to get all the details from Roy and Jonny, to get a taste of the new album, and as a bonus you can even find out a bit about Transcendental Meditation and see Roy’s nakedy feet.
So off you go, take a look, and then help the cause at a level that you feel comfortable with (NO PRESSURE!!!).
In other Spacehog news, last nights show at Maxwell’s (Hoboken, NJ) was sold out! Video hi-lights were posted here on Spacehog Official Facebook (just scroll down a bit).
They are playing again right this very moment for some lucky folks in Monirae’s (New York). For anyone in those parts who missed the shows or who need another Spacehog fix, they are playing the (Freddie) Mercury Lounge (NYC) on Feb 26th (buy your tickets here).
Thats it for the moment but expect more updates on the new album, interviews, tour dates, and just some general chatter about Spacehog to come.
In the meantime, feel free to comment, introduce yourself, tell us about recent and past Spacehog gigs you’ve attended, or just tell me that you totally understand why I would buy a cassette recording of a live show from 1997 and a signed rehearsal tape from the Chinese Album writing session when I don’t have a cassette player.
Spacehog representatives Roy and Jonny seized the reins in the VirginMobileLive studio, gave an excellent interview and played some excellent music (including two new ‘hog tunes). Check it out:

Bamboozle as in New Jersey’s Bamboozle Festival however apparently means a magical three day oceanfront festival, with a main stage on the beach and eight other stages covering the best in mainstream pop, rock, metal, comedy and more.
And this all means what to you, Spacehog fans? It means yet another chance to see Spacehog!
Just announced today on Spacehog’s Official Facebook page, Spacehog plays the Bamboozle Festival, Sunday, May 20th, 4:00 on the Paramount Stage.
One day passes, 3 day passes, VIP passes, Undying Love, and Shuttle Passes all can be bought by clicking here.
Okay, I was totally bamboozling you about the undying love (everyone knows you can’t buy love, silly) but the rest is all true.
Have fun at the beach and wear your sunscreen! ~ Charlotte x
