it was beyond incredible…a big thank you the whole crew who’s been helping/helped make it happen/made us feel so welcome: @ThatKevinSmith, mr. @JaronSound (who came in right off the dolls’ tour to setup sound), @CamelToad, @DerickArmijo, @brendoman, @mingchen37, @amy_pfister, @JenSchwalbach, and rockstar photographer @AllanAmato (who captured the whole thing with pics). be sure to read the lefsetz letter all about it. he was there, and he loved it. yay bob.
since the show was announced, people have been asking how they could hear it. as you read this, kevin is hard at work at editing it (and readying himself for his Q&A/show in boston for THURSDAY/TONIGHT – GO since i can’t and show him some of your amazing boston-love)…they’re planning to put it up in three parts next monday-wednesday, HERE using bandcamp.
unlike other SModcast shows (all HERE/completely FREE), we thought it’d be nice to share this with you BUT ask that you make a charitible donation to kevin’s wayne foundation, in return. the wayne foundation is dedicated to stopping sexual abuse against children. all in all, the downloads will cost about $3, but please don’t hesitate to donate more to this awesome cause when it goes live. it’d be great if it didn’t have to exist, but it does, so let’s pool together and do what we can for the kids. for more info on the foundation (or to donate something NOW), visit viewaskew.com/thewaynefoundation/
and if you’re in boston/new england and can trek to the house of blues, get your tickets to see kevin (who’s gonna show a teaser from his new film “red state”), HERE.
