AKIMI Fundraiser: SunDog & Harper's Farce
Want to help Alaskan artists travel to one of the hottest music scenes in the U.S.? Alaska Independent Musicians Initiative - AKIMI is sending Alaskan musicians to Austin, TX to participate in Cdbaby's "DIY Musician's Conference", as well as perform at some of Austin's favorite bars/venues.
SunDog and Harper's Farce will be performing outside at Anchorage's Town Square on July 13th at 3PM and accepting donations in person, as well as live-streaming the performance online and accepting donations via Paypal. All of the donations will go to AKIMI to fund travel expenses (airfare, housing, backline, transportation) for the traveling artists.
Participating Alaskan Artists: SunDog, Marian Call, Cliff and Ivy, Joel Schnaper Music
More on Alaska Independent Musicians Initiative - AKIMI: "We see a future where Alaska is an international hub of northern music, arts, and culture. We are taking action to develop the Alaskan music industry and put Alaska on the map as 'a place where music comes from'. AKIMI is a diverse group of musicians, stakeholders and partners from around the state working together to increase the stakes for Alaskan musicians.
AKIMI formed in 2017 as a collaboration between the Spenard JazzFest and the Parlor in the Round concert series. We currently have active members around the state with several new initiatives launching in 2018." (https://akimimusic.org/our-vision)
