“Music unites and transforms, makes us laugh, makes us think, or simply gets our toes tapping. So we thought we’d give the GOOD community a chance to kickstart a community music project of your own.
GOOD Maker is calling all music lovers to tell us how you would use $2,500 to share your passion and skills with others. Get creative! You can propose anything from a benefit concert to a scratch workshop for aspiring DJs, a lullaby-writing class to a community jam session at a local park. We want to help you bring your city or neighborhood to life through music. Apply here for a chance to win.”
You might remember while back when L.A. Zine Fest participated in the GOOD L.A. Fund contest. While we didn’t win, they clearly loved us because they featured us on GOOD.is right before the Zine Fest.
Some cool projects:
- Emergency Songs, an L.A. band that performs songs about what to do in, during, and after and earthquake wants to take the money to host a free dinner and musical and open-mic. (You might recognize Emergency Songs from CicLAVia 2011; they played a few sets in Little Tokyo.)
- Revolution Endless Summer, whose goal is to document the burgeoning punk rock/DIY scene in Honolulu. The money will help to buy equipment to record shows and break even. The recordings for free online. The project was posted by Travis Wigginz of Showerbeers Zine and Dream Dragons.
Can’t wait to vote!
