Local punk rock marching band Mucca Pazza is raising funds to cover production costs for their fourth album “L.Y.A.!” They point out “although the album is ready for release, we still need to pay for nearly all of the production costs. That means we need to pay for our recording engineer/producer, artwork design, barcodes, shipping, test pressings, and mastering. But that’s only half of it. Even once we’ve repaid our debts to those amazing, beautiful people, we still need to get it out to all of you amazing, beautiful people.”
Potential perks include sheet music, bumper stickers, pom-poms, and underwear.
They will be playing a Halloween show at Lincoln Hall at 2424 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL.
The campaign ends on October 10, 2014 (11:59pm PT).
