Former Play for Keeps bassist Cash Colligan has started a Kickstarter to bring his friend, former The Cab drummer Alex Johnson, to Las Vegas so he can play drums in a new band. They're looking for $1,000, and according to the project description, "It would make ZERO sense to not have Alex Johnson become a part of this project that WILL CHANGE MUSIC. He knows nothing about this project, though I'm sure when we go live it will be hard to keep the secret." For pledging $100, you can get a whopping email and three tweets from Alex. We've had plenty of Kickstarter debates on this website - where do you think this falls in the spectrum of Kickstarter's niche and usefulness in the music industry?
