Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed this far!!! We have just 2 weeks to meet our goal. We are at 10%, but I still believe we can make it to 100% with support from those who believe in our dream to offer free concerts to amazing social justice organizations and schools around the US & Europe.
We have had some GREAT FEATURES since our last update, which also keeps me hopeful that we can make it!
Bitch Magazine gave our Kickstarter a fabulous shout out on their blog: http://bitchmagazine.org/post/b-sides-feminist-music-projects-to-get-behind

Blogtalk radio show Saturday Morning with Joy Keys did a live interview with me discussing our Kickstarter campaign, social justice issues, parenthood and more.

I also had the please of being interviewed by Radio DJ and entertainment lawyer Paul Rapp on his Splatto Festival show on WBCR-LP 97.7FM Berkshire Community Radio.
