Pixies, David Lowery, And The Rob Ford Crackstarter: Gogo Pledge To Kickstart This!

Welcome to our new column, Gogo Pledge To Kickstart This! Each week, we'll scour Kickstarter, PledgeMusic, and Indiegogo and report back with three projects worthy of your money or your ridicule. It's up to you to decide.

PIXIES: A Visual History (Exclusive Ltd. Ed. Hardcover)

Description: Sean T. Rayburn, one of the founders of the Pixies fansite that later became the Pixies official site, PixiesMusic.com. He and the band have been posting vintage photos of the band for the past two years and the fans have been loving them. So they're trying to compile them in a lovely coffee table book.

Perks Of Note: Unfortunately, none of the perks contain anything from any of the band members.

"Get Off This" | A Film About Music + Perseverance

Description: This looks like it will be a pretty kickass documentary about Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker frontman David Lowery. But I'm a huge fan, so color me biased.

Perks Of Note: If you have a spare $10,000 collecting dust somewhere, it can get you a postcard of the film's cover artwork, a 30-minute sneak peak of the director's cut via digital download, a special thanks in the film credits and a digital download of the completed film, unreleased tracks of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven songs from the film's production, the official movie poster shipped to your door, the official DVD of the completed film, a special edition DVD of the completed film signed by David Lowery, a song request at a Cracker or Camper Van Beethoven show of your choice, the official movie t-shirt in your size shipped to your door, a limited edition lithograph of the official movie poster signed by David Lowery and members of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, complimentary tickets for you and a friend to a show of your choice with all access passes and a meet and greet with David Lowery and the band backstage, an honorary Associate Producer credit in the film, a day on set while they shoot David Lowery with Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven performing (travel and lodging not included), two tickets for you and a guest to attend the premiere screening with David Lowery and members of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven (travel and lodging not included), and David Lowery will fly to your home for a private acoustic performance for you and your closest friends. If you buy it, feel free to invite me!

Rob Ford Crackstarter

Description:Gawker has been offered a video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack that they would like to purchase and publish on their website. It will cost them $200,000. That's where you come in.

Perks Of Note: 10 grand will get you the iPhone that recorded the video.
