Yo, Stanley! How goes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am YETI BOB:

Spence: I was visiting Baltimore several years ago, and bought a used copy of the Beatles White Album on CD to play in the car on the drive back to Chicago. Then like a year later, Horse Lords played a super-underground basement show in Chicago, at a place with no permits etc, after the crowd Owen asked me "Did you buy a Beatles CD in Baltimore?". I was there both times with my partner, so I guess he recognized us as a duo. We look like old hippies, but we're not *that* weird-looking! :)

I feel like the dumbest SWL'er but how do I make small pledges in shows out of the larger pledge online? Do I just fill in the 4 boxes in the little PLEDGE NOW! box and say "X dollars of my XX swl pledge" and then im good? or do i have to pick swag and enter payment info? or does emailing pledge@ do it? Sorry for being dense but I wanna pledge for the Horse Lords :)

@Daniell: You can pledge up to your total S4L amount to various shows. Just select the amount, then ignore all the swag stuff and make sure the right show is selected. Then on the last page, just enter in the memo section "Aim $XX of my S$L at [SHOW]"; then hit "Bill me later."

Way to go, Nathan!

Somerville has to rival Brooklyn in terms of listeners. Ken mentioned top zip codes yesterday but that might have been surveys, not pledges?
