**DUE TO OVERWHELMING INITIAL SUPPORT, WE'VE UPPED OUR GOAL TO $3800 TO COVER THE COST OF A NEW KEYBOARD FOR THE BAND!!*** Please continue to pledge through Jan. 14!
The City Life Supplement is an exciting new radio show/podcast that is a metropolitan answer to the radio hit, “A Prairie Home Companion.” This naughty, illegitimate little brother of the nostalgic classic is a collection of songs, sketches, stories, musical guests and general hilarity, all loosely based in the fictional neighborhood of Raven’s Park, Chicago. We philosophize about neighborhood politics and finding love in the big city; sing songs about hipsters and winters that last forever; and tell stories about super heroes and public transportation. The City Life Supplement will be recorded live in front of an audience the last Saturday of each month beginning in January, 2012. The podcast will be distributed via iTunes as well as our website, citylifesupplement.org.
Our team of writers have been working since October on creating the script for the January show as well as brainstorming and workshopping pieces for future shows. The musicians and foley artist anxiously await the final script so they may begin to add their flair and flavor to the show.
Your donation will serve to support us as we create and grow this long-term project. Our major costs each month include advertising and promotion, web hosting and bandwidth for the podcast, space rental and equipment rental. We feel our goal of $3,000 will position us for immediate success and sustainability.
