Three Imaginary Girls

It’s a very imaginary 13th birthday!

On June 10, 2002, published our first set of reviews.  In the blog world that’s like we’re…. well, it feels like we’ve been around since before there were blogs.

To help usher in the next era of TIG, we’re reaching out to you for help.

We’re at a crossroads. With 13 years and 8,300 reviews and articles in the imaginary archive, the time has come to convert the entire site to WordPress; it’s a more economical and friendly web platform than what we’re on now that will enable us to continue spreading the imaginary word and keep those reviews of the amazing shows or bands you love alive.

To do this, we need a bunch of smarty pants developer time and resources. We’ve started the process of converting things, but we need your help to get to the finish line. Our goal is $5,000 – which will go to cover developer and conversion costs in the short term as well as help with operational costs.

All the details and a rundown of the thank you gifts {vintage shirts or hoodies anyone?} are on our indiegogo campaign page {go go go!}.IG has always been an all volunteer site {there has never been an imaginary paycheck}. Our motivating force is simple: we heart Seattle and our Pacific Northwest music & film scene – and we want to embolden and share that excitement with others. Like you, we think that the right mix tape with a good dose of twee-pop can fix anything … and we really, really, really, REALLY want to keep our mix tapes alive.

We thank you so much for all your support over the years. We would be eternally grateful if you could spare some change and help us spread the word about the indiegogo campaign with your friends.
