Music and beer go together just as well as peas & carrots. Okay, fuck that corny comparison. Let's just say, they go together well. Many brewers are fans of alternative and heavy music, and many musicians, well, love beer. Both industries are always up against larger syndicates who often dictate what our audiences see and consume. Which fuels the work we produce in an artfully craft driven way. What I'm really saying is that we like to give our middle finger to the status quo and do our own thing! Yeah, UP THE PUNX!

Risks and challenges
Now let's talk about the important yet lame part...Money. We have several AMAZING sponsors, they are not to be dismissed. We'll give them a personal shout out later. However, what we came across that with our inaugural event, we are doing a lot of bartering/trade/in-kind work with people. What that all means is that we want to ensure this event goes off without a hitch by covering our costs! We want everyone to feel part of this and get out just as much as they get in.
This is our breakdown to break even!
Venue - $1250
Headliner - $1100
Supporting Bands - $500
Beer Costs - $100/half barrel (Budgeting around $2000)
Glassware - $1200
Insurance - $700
Stage Manager - $300
Additional Marketing Materials - $1500
Ice/Buckets/Table Covers - $200
Approximate total - $7,760
Kickstarter Fees - ~388 & ~233
We truly believe that everyone should take out what they put in. There are a lot of people working hard to ensure a successful event. A few important roles, to start, is our Stage Manager. We have addressed that our bands are important. We want to and want to ensure they can come in and play without any hiccups. Our Stage Manager, Chad Koza, will singularly communicate with each band to get any and all special request, sound requirements, and ultimately have a great experience. He will also keep us on schedule.
Secondly, insurance. If any issues arise, it is important that we have adequate insurance. Besides it being a requirement of the venue, we value the protection in case ANYTHING happens.
Lastly, our top tier sponsor is Commonwealth Press. Huge shout out to those guys. They have been and will be a huge contributor. However, we are budgeting a portion of our overhead to hitting them back. Again, it goes back to people getting out what they put in. They are already putting in way more than asked.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
