One month back Carell Casey contributed an article to Dane101 looking at all of the Madison music projects that have sought independent funding via Kickstarter. Since that article hit this website more Kickstarter projects have been brought to our attention. This is an attempt to highlight some of those projects.
Good Style Shop Collective: The Good Style Shop is moving to the space previously occupied by the Project Lodge on East Johnson Street. The move will give the popular vintage clothing and occasional music space more room for an expanding inventory as well as more square footage for musicians to perform.
Z-Animate The Zombeatles' Second Release!: The Zombeatles are rising from the grave just in time for Halloween and they're taking their show on the road...all the way to the East Coast. They're seeking $6,666 to put toward producing a new album which will see more familiar songs by the Beatles zombified. Some of the songs include "Yellow Subdermis," "I Peel Spine," "Let It Feed," "Torture Doctor's Garden," and "In My Unlife."
Beth Kille's Dust: Beth Kille has done a great deal for the Madison music community including serving on the board of the Madison Area Music Association and being a primary player in Girls' Rock Camp. Now she's looking for some support from the community so she can release a new album titled Dust. While she's looking for $11,000 to fund her album she says that anything she earns above and beyond that amount will go to the two organizations mentioned above.
Help the MAMAs Put Musical Instruments in Kids' Hands: Speaking of the Madison Area Music Association, the organization is also seeking funding so it can put on an even more dynamic Madison Area Music Awards in 2013. The show is one of the primary ways the organization brings attention to its mission to help kids in Dane County have access to music and instruments.
Ida Joe's Uncharted: Ida Joe is seeking to release her third album after watching a track off her second album find make it's way through the indie airwaves across the country. The new album will be personal as she explores the uncharted territory within.
