At the end of September, he and his sidekick This Heart Electric (AKA Ricardo Guerrero of "Miami Venues Suck Dick" fame) plan to load their crap into an old Chevy S-10 pickup and go zipping off on a 30-day working trip across America.
"This'll be my third headlining tour," Dino says. "And the reasons I'm starting this Kickstarter Fund are (A) inflated gas prices, (B) we have no money, and (C) that we have an emergency fund in case the car breaks down."
The campaign closes at 1:25 a.m. on September 14. And so far, Dino's earned
$169 (11 percent!) $1,263 (84 percent!) of his $1500 goal. Do your part by heading over to the official Dino Felipe East Coast & Midwest U.S. Fall Tour homepage, donating some dinero, and getting an awesome gift! Seriously ... Even cheapskates who drop one damn dollar will receive a "thank you video message from Dino!"
