Aktar Aktar is Going to Texas!

Aktar Aktar is a Chicago indie band that has been invited to play four showcases at the "South by South West" music festival in Austin Texas March 15th-17th. In order to take full advantage of this opportunity we built a small tour around the trip that would help promote our group and help pay for the trip itself. We will leave march 12th and return back to Chicago on the 21st.

Unfortunately the Van that we travel in needed huge repairs and cost $2500 to get running again. This money we had to borrow and need to pay back somehow! On top of that we need to pay for food and gas while on the road for 5 people which we've estimated to go up to $1200 at least.

 On Feb 22nd we played a show in Detroit and our van broke down once again on the way and needed to buy a new alternator and battery costing us another $443. We've now lost everything we had saved up for the trip.
 So unless we can raise the $4000 to cover all our costs we will have to start cancelling shows and possibly the entire tour!

We will be giving out some great gifts to people who donate $25 or more to our cause. These include signed cd's, t shirts, posters, and more! We have the names of everyone who donates and will be able to contact you so you can recieve your gifts as soon as we can ship them out to you.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years and thank you to those who have already donated! We are in your debt.
