Amanda Palmer raised almost $700,000; Punk Island up to $20
Amanda Palmer‘s Kickstarter is up to $683,225 which is about $250,000 more than last time we mentioned it which was before her upcoming Brooklyn show quickly sold out. One person spent $10,000 which gets them dinner with Amanda who will also paint them naked (if they want) (they get naked, not her) (well, you never know).
Punk Island isn’t doing so well. The free, multi-stage Governors Island fest has only raised $20 so far on their Kickstarter. Both $10 backers will receive a 1 inch button. That said, the fest is also raising money for itself via other means.
