Wanna get in on the ground floor of a feature film featuring Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, The Pixies’ Joey Santiago, Ministry’s Al Jorgensen and Sin Quirin, Ricky Warwick of Black Star Riders, Eddie Ojeda of Twisted Sister and more?

Aside from copies of the movie, crowdfunding perks include everything from key chains, shirts, guitar straps, Skype chats, Pixies VIP concert passes, the chance to have a pint with Warwick at his favorite LA pub, attendance at a Ministry rehearsal …even have Joey Santiago rock up to a house anywhere in the USA to cook you and your friends his famous pasta and…
