It’s the most pure and direct way to support the art that we all need in our lives. For donations set at various pricing levels, fans can reward themselves with anything from hard drives that can be loaded up with live content at Bonerama shows, to serving as roadie for a day or traveling with the band throughout the entire year of 2010!” Click here for the full details on the Boner Donor program.
