Fans to the rescue: The Aquabats crowdfund a revival

In 2012, the Aquabats, a theatrical pop-punk-new-wave-ska-surf-what-have-you band that came out of Orange County in the 1990s, turned themselves into children’s television. "The Aquabats!

"We would go out and play shows and there would be all these kids and families there that didn't even know we were a band," said Aquabat co-founder Christian Jacobs, a.k.a. the MC Bat Commander, in a recent phone conversation that also included fundraising consultant Ivan Askwith, previously instrumental in campaigns to bring back “Veronica Mars,” “Reading Rainbow” and “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” (Read More)
