With ever-increasing frequency, songwriters need to make their own opportunities to share their music to audiences. It’s certainly true in Austin—and it’s especially true during that big music festival that whips into town every March.
We songwriters adore our audiences, too. You’ve got lots of ways to spend your time and entertainment dollars. That means we want to give you great shows great venues with great sound. Unfortunately, this doesn’t come for free anymore.
That’s what Infinite Monkey Music—and this Kickstarter—is all about.
Infinite Monkey Music is a showcase of top-drawer singer-songwriters in Austin set for Saturday, March 18th from 3:00-9:00 at the Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery in South Austin (121 Pickle Street off of South Congress, just north of Ben White). There’s plenty of off-street parking. Light snacks will be provided.
Take a look at the artists who’ve committed to this great day of music! Michael Fracasso, David Hamburger, Jenny Reynolds, Jeff Plankenhorn, Jaimee Harris,Tom Meny, Amanda Pearcy, Jean Synodinos, Jenifer Jackson, Havilah Rand, Danny Britt and Marvin Dykhuis!
Where the Funding Goes
Like we said, we want to do this right. Really right. So we’re starting with sound. We’ll have a superb sound system and one of the city’s best audio engineers for the event. John Pearson crafts sound for one of the nation’s best listening rooms (The Bugle Boy in LaGrange, TX), and has worked with Mark Hallman at Congress House Studio.
Next, we’re spending funds on promotion. With all of the competition in town during the SX festival, we need to cut through the clutter and fill the house. Posters, social media and more—we’ll do it right, thanks you.
Finally, we’ll be able to do something that rarely happens in Austin: pay all 12 artists. Our friends and fans are always generous with the tip jar at shows, and that’s why we hope you’ll think of this as a “virtual tip jar – in advance.”
Kickstarter is an “all or nothing” crowd funding platform. That means we need to hit our goal or, well, go into debt for this. This is why your help matters so much, right now.
Please take a look at our digital rewards to the right and choose the one you love!
About The Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Wine Bar
We searched for a South Austin venue that’s open, incredibly friendly, and has tons of off-street parking. This is it: The Infinite Monkey Theorem which crafts (damned fine) wine right in the venue.
For Friends & Fans in Austin… Please block the day off as busy on your calendar, and come join us from 3:00-9:00. We can’t wait to play for you and give you a big hug with our thanks.
For Friends & Fans Across the Country… We wish we could fly you in to join us, but know that your support from far away means the world to us!
Risks and challenges
Sound for live music is as much art as it is science. All venues have inherent sound challenges but we’ve offset this challenge with an exceptional sound engineer.
While the artists listed on the schedule above are currently committed to this event, someone occasionally (rarely) gets sick or has an emergency that prevents them from participating. Rest assured, if an artist must cancel, we’ll fill that vacancy with another exceptional Austin songwriter!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
