What is Patreon?

Patreon is an amazing website sort of like Kickstarter.  Patreon doesn't focus on a one-time goal like Kickstarter does, though.  Instead, it focuses on recurring creations.  Artists or creators invite their fans to become official patrons.  The patrons pledge to give a certain amount of money every time the artist releases work (for example, a music video, or an album...).  Think of it like a tipping system!  Patrons can choose different levels of support: $1, $3, $25...etc.  The patrons then get access to exclusive content and rewards, like unreleased b-sides, patron-only vlogs from the artist, private shows....(check out the rewards we've set up over to the right ------>)

Who Are We?

We are Westerner, a psychedelic, electronic rock band.  We're a ballsy cocktail mix of psychedelic rock, disco, and trip hop.  Our songs are at once danceable and mesmerizing.  We’ve released a full length concept album which you can listen to here, and two animated music videos (this one and that one).  And now we are going to put out a new music video every month (sometimes more, sometimes less).  In addition, we will be releasing animated music videos (like the ones you saw above) for each of the songs from our concept album (also above) so that they form one long, animated, psychedelic movie.   It'll be like Pink Floyd’s, “The Wall!"  The Internet is gonna explode!!!

Please consider giving us a dollar for every music video we put out.  Or whatever you choose is fine.  We will continue to put out amazing music videos no matter who donates (we just might be able to do it better and more frequently if you do).  We've set up several levels of support along with some awesome rewards that will get you jazzed.  So check out the rewards (to the right), find a level of support that works for you, and click the support button above!  We appreciate any gesture!  

Where Does Your Money Go?

When we make a music video, we pay the actors, the cinematographer, the equipment rental store...etc.  We've done this for all of our previous work, and we want to continue to pay them the respect they deserve for all of their hard work!  

If you're concerned about going over your budget, you can easily set a maximum monthly amount when you're entering your payment info. And you can cancel your patronage anytime. Lastly, if you’re low on cash, then please don't worry about becoming a patron! :) We don’t want you to stretch yourself thin!

Thank You!
