Launch Bitch's new project, BEACH. Get a limited edition cassette EP, be on a song, or drive away in Bitch's tour bus/RV.

BITCH HAS BEEN BRINGING YOU EMPOWERED GLITTERY VIOLIN ROCK FOR YEARS. 

She is at the edge of something and wants to name it BEACH

Does that warm you up?

In Bitch's words, "BEACH represents a place where everything shifts. Rocks become sand, water meets earth, birds screech, tides shift and colors collide."

Bitch has been making a new album for the past two years.  It is her favorite project to date!  Wielding her electric violin like a cock-rocked sword, Bitch's new material is backed by electronic beats and her own ukulele, bass and keytar. The songs are anthemic smart and hopeful, with a distinct new sound helped by producer Roger Paul Mason and beat-maker Alligator (Billie Jo Cavallaro).

Bitch wants to share her shifting shoreline with the world.

Kickstart BEACH by getting a limited-edition EP cassette of Bitch's forthcoming full-length studio album, which was made in Brooklyn, carried around Michigan, mixed in Chicago, and birthed right here, on the edge of something.

Go watch the video for "Ibuprofen" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qke0pyJ8bqo

The money we raise will go towards the costs of the full-length album, marketing it and developing the team we need to make this release as widely received as possible.

IT'S TIME FOR BITCH TO BE TRAVELING WITH BEACH

LET'S GET HER THERE, ALL OUR WISHES IN HER HAIR

Check out all the rewards that come with your well-wishes! ONE LUCKY PERSON will get to drive away in Bitch's beloved and bedazzled tour bus, Camp TWATH.  Originally named Camp TWAT, she has transitioned into Camp TWATH.  Read why: http://bitchmusic.com/?p=847

GET ON THE BUS, GET TO OWN HER BUS!
EITHER WAY IT ALL COMES DOWN TO US!

YOU are not only dying for a BEDAZZLED-BY-BEACH-CASSETTE-WALKMAN or BOOMBOX to play yer new BEACH TAPES cassette

or a made-by-BEACH Cassette-Tape-Necklace...

YOU are someone who believes in the importance of art, music and wild expression. YOU want to support Bitch getting her glittery-est foot forward. YOU are a new fan, an old fan, a truster in the 'we must we must-er,' a follower of the Sparkly Queen Areola, or a recent convert to Bitch-ism. YOU want to weave your legacy into the transformation of the artist Bitch. YOU have always wanted an RV with a HOT PINK bedroom and never knew where to find one! 

YOU have always wanted to hear your name in a song. YOU have always wanted to have Bitch pen you a poem. YOU have always wanted to talk to Bitch, mouth to mouth, about life, politics, love or dogs! YOU have always wanted to know how a soundcheck goes, how a pre-show shows. YOU have always wanted to take Bitch to your favorite restaurant and talk about life, politics, love and dogs. YOU have been a supporter, a fan, a necessary part of the machine that runs Bitch by backing her in her endeavors, because she has brought you joy, poetry or crazy colorful fashion for years.

THE BIGGER THE BETTER WE'RE IN IT TOGETHER:

IF this project MAKES ITS GOAL we all get to WATCH BEACH LAUNCH.

IF it doesn't, all the money goes back to you, and we get nothing! (except a bus-full of bedazzled boom boxes)

IF this project exceeds $55,000 each and EVERY BACKER will get a copy of the full-length album when it comes out (probably next Spring)

IF this project exceeds $66,000 each and EVERY BACKER will get a SIGNED copy of the full-length album when it comes out (probably next Spring), and BACKERS of $250 or more will get the signed album plus free tickets to her next show in your town!

EITHER WAY, IN US WE TRUST

WE MUST! WE MUST!

(STAY TUNED FOR PROJECT UPDATES THAT WILL INCLUDE A TOUR OF THE INSIDE OF THE BUS, STORIES OF THE SONGS ON THE ALBUM, A NEW TAP DANCE WITH BITCH'S MOM AND A WHOLE LOT MORE...)

A BIG AND WITCHY THANK YOU.

XO

BITCH
