A month ago, County Grind told you of a plan laid out by the pop-punks from Plantation, New City Lions. In order to fund its new EP, the guys decided to go the Kickstarter route and solicit donations for half of the money needed from fans. The bigger the gift, the bigger the reward -- drop them a cool $1,000 and the band will write and record a song with you,
take you on a dinner/movie date, perform a private concert for you, and give
you a signed hard copy of the Kids EP, and a pile of other related swag. Sharing is caring, people!
In any case, time is starting to run short, and the guys are still a little short of their goal, according to the Kickstarter page. Pledges must reach a $2,000 total by Friday at 11:38 p.m. for the funding to happen. So, New City Lions are giving another gift: a free concert tonight at Riverside Market in Fort Lauderdale.
If you've never been to the off-the-beaten-path Sailboat Bend spot, it's one of the finest local establishments for a laid-back night of drinking craft beer. The event goes from 7 to 11 p.m., and New City Lions will perform about 9 p.m.
New City Lions. 7 p.m. Thursday, September 8, at Riverside Market, 608 SW 12th Ave., Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Click here.
