Ok, maybe sponsor is a bit much; Backer? Supporter? Emotional brassiere? Whatever you want to call me, that’s what I am (that works for so many other things in my life too).
Confused? Let me esplain. No, there is too much to esplain. Let me sum up. My friends at the Radio Bean (pretty much the coolest place to see music in downtown Burlington because it’s pretty much the only place you can see Milton Busker) are expanding and they need assistance from the community to do so. They’ve spun up a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to finish construction for their “Lamp Club Lamp Shop” and wine bar. Yes, you read that right: Lamp Shop and Wine Bar. It sounds kind of insane to me too, but so does opening a coffee shop in Burlington that has live music 7 nights a week… and buying a low-signal radio station to broadcast many of that music live over the airways and internet… and expanding into a full service restaurant. All insane. And it all seems to working out pretty well for them so I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and help them out because they’ve helped me out so much.
Go watch their video on Kickstarter. If you can donate, please do. Anything helps but if you can be a little generous they have some pretty cool gifts that they’re giving away (why yes, I do want a signed Kat Wright & the Indomitable Soul Band CD. Thank you).
Anyway, they’re good people and if you can help them out, please do so. If you can’t, spread the word.
And please continue to call me anything you like. I don’t mind.
