Sister Crayon is a local electro/trip hop/"manic" band who have been making quite the splash lately. Recently signed to Manimal Vinyl, their future projects include Concerts 4 Charity's Ballet + Live Local Music event AND they will be recording a track for Manimal's Tribute to David Bowie (other artists include Duran Duran, Chairlift, Vivian Girls and more).

Music blogs have been featuring their tracks, LA Weekly has covered them, and this year they will be embarking on an exciting West Coast tour to promote their debut album Bellow which will be rounded off with performances at this year's CMJ awards in New York City and Brooklyn.
There's only one BIG problem:
They need a touring van!
Let's let them explain it to you:
After working relentlessly for a year on recording our debut album, we have finally finished it. We are incredibly proud of our record but we are eager to travel and play our music live all over the country. We are here on Kickstarter because we need your help. For over 2 years, we have toured in very uncomfortable situations (in several different vehicles ranging from barely functioning to out of our budget rentals). After a solid year of recording our debut album, "Bellow", we are finally ready to tour nationally upon it's release. We have worked extremely hard and are ready to work even harder to spread our music to those outside of California.
