Original Post:
With our 10th anniversary(!) approaching, it’s as good a time as any to reflect on where we’ve come from, how we got to this strange and wonderful place, and what actually goes into making this unique community fundraiser we call Desert Bus for Hope.

We want to make a documentary.

But we need your help.

Bionic Trousers Media, the company behind LoadingReadyRun, has agreed to fund the first $30,000 CAD, but the remaining $92,000 CAD of the production costs we are asking through a Kickstarter campaign that we launched today.

If you’d be interested in seeing a Desert Bus for Hope documentary, take a moment to look over the project. If it funds, we’ll make the documentary. If not, the people have spoken. =)

thedoubleclicksThe Doubleclicks will be calling into Desert Bus at 3pm PST on Monday, November 17th.

Angela and Aubrey Webber are sisters who started their Youtube channel in 2011 with a song-a-week project that went on for 6 months. Since then the duo has continued releasing songs on Youtube and CD with songs such as “Nothing to Prove“, “Cats and Netflix“, and “Love You Like A Burrito“.

Just before the Doubleclicks were guests on the show TableTop in Feb 2014, they challenged themselves to write a song about TableTop in which they named all the games that had been played up until that point. They also wrote and performed a song for a LoadingReadyRun video called “Four PS4s“.

Angela plays the guitar, ukulele, and keyboard cat. Aubrey plays the cello. Known for writing songs that emphasize geeky topics they are found performing at conventions, events such as W00tstock, comic shops, game stores, and online.

In 2014 they ran a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for their latest album, Dimetrodon and 5 weeks of weekly songs. The campaign was funded by more than 4 times what they asked for. This overfunding unlocked additional weeks of weekly songs, the ability for them to purchase new video gear and gave Aubrey the chance to quit her day job so she could work on music full time!

Hey hey, everyone!

Just wanted to give you a reminder that Desert Bus will be on The Zone tomorrow. If you’re up, there’s a strong possibility you’ll be tune in to 91.3FM and hear me on the The morning Zone with Dylan Willows and Jason Lamb. If you’re more of an afternoon type, then turn your radio on around 3, and listen for us on the afternoon show, with Jeremy Baker.

If you haven’t got a radio, or you live somewhere outside the range of the typical FM radio station based in Victoria, you can head on over to www.thezone.fm And listen via live streaming. Just click “Listen Live” and you’re good to go. That should help get your computer warmed up for the main event, too. Remember, we’re kicking off at 6PM.
