It’s been a while since we hipped you to a local Kickstarter campaign. Yes, it’s wonderful to help out your fellow cash-strapped man, but let’s face it: there’s only so much dough we can toss around to fund ill-advised band tours. But occasionally, a campaign comes around that seems worth the time, trouble, and dollar signs. Take the new album from Milwaukee singer-songwriter Wolfgang Schaefer, for example. Schaefer is looking to drum up a modest $1,200 in the next 20 days to help press copies of his new CD, Typewriter. You can listen to the album—which is quite good—here:
Per usual, there are plenty of goodies to whet the appetites of potential backers. A pledge of $1 or more will trigger “high fives for the dudes” and “coy glances for the ladies,” while a pledge of $250 or more will entitle a backer to new CDs, old CDs, t-shirts, show posters, a used harmonica, lyric sheets, and a “totally sweet mix-tape.” Sweet, indeed.
Check out a personal pitch from Schaefer—featuring some high-energy swing set action and two poorly cooked hamburgers—in the video below. A release show for Typewriter is set for Aug. 23 at Linneman’s.
