What an amazing year we’ve had: Touring, recording, working, fundraising! We kick the new year off with two shows in our hometown on Athens, GA…In case ya’ll ain’t from around here, both venues are in downtown Athens. The Highwire Lounge is a swank new venue serving handcrafted cocktails. It is located at 269 N. Hull St., behind and attached to it’s big sister, the Trapeze pub. The loverly Flicker Theater is located less than a block up from the 40 Watt at 263 W. Washington St.xoxo- HFags(Claire, Page, Suny & Deb)

Howdy heat lightening,
Have we told you what a fox you are?
You’re just so gorgeous, we can’t stop staring.
Anyhow, Hope For Agoldensummer has been a busy little hive of bees! We've entered the mixing stage of our 4th album and … and we’re broke. Busted. Penniless. Ruined. Literally, we have less than $300 in the bank. The matter came to a head last month when Page’s tooth-whitening addiction was compounded by Claire’s strong urge to complete her Faberge egg collection. And so our money was spent.
We were thrown into a grave melancholy for several weeks. But then we saw you at the farmer’s market last Tuesday and the following thought occurred to us, “Each & every person who likes our music is physically beautiful, highly intelligent, & unusually generous. Surely such angelic beings would want to help us fund our new album.”
So, we created a fundraiser on the world wide web:www.indiegogo.com/HopeForAgoldensummer
We are offering many killer perks in return for your support. AND TAKE NOTE: CLAIRE CAMPBELL HEREBY PROMISES & GUARANTEES TO MAKE A VIDEO OF HERSELF STANDING ATOP A MOUNTAIN OR IN A RUSHING RIVER BELLOWING OUT THE NAMES OF (& GRATITUDE FOR) EVERY PERSON WHO HELPS US FINISH THIS PROJECT. SHE MIGHT EVEN WEAR A DRESS AND POSSIBLY SOME WATERPROOF MASCARA.
This is the fourth Hope For Agoldensummer album. It is yet untitled. There are 16 songs. Some you may have heard and some are secrets. It will undoubtedly be enclosed in lovely and environmentally ethical packaging, featuring drawings by our own Page Campbell & Deb Davis. We expect to release this album in late Winter or early Spring 2011.We now offer a tender THANK YOU in advance of your support.Yours,
Hope For Agoldensummer
