We are looking to create a local television show, showcasing Milwaukee's music scene and the contributors who make it happen. We want to do this in a way that is authentic to the viewer as well as the artists, and gives an accurate depiction of the emerging local scene. Each show will consist of one featured artist performing live at the Miramar Theatre, coupled with a showcase of important contributors (record label, record store, festival, etc) to the Milwaukee music scene.
What We Need:
We need funding for camera rental, as well as the cost of a crew. We already have the Miramar Theatre as our venue. Camera rental gets expensive fast, and we want to present a high quality product for you, the viewer. We also would like to take care of our venue, if we could.
If this is done right, we can create something that will unite Milwaukee's artists. There are so many facets to Milwaukee that people don't know about, and it's about time that we have something we can all call ours. It's been said for the longest time that if you want to make it as an artist, you have to get out of Milwaukee. There are also several artists here on track to national exposure. We also don't want what we're calling the "Bon Iver Effect": Making it big, winning a Grammy and having people in your hometown/area not knowing who you are.

- Email us if you have something other than money that you'd be willing to donate. We'd love to have flyers to hand out that advertise the show, amongst other things
- If you have a "Perk" that you'd be willing to donate that we can give our contributors, we'll take it. Gift certificates, music downloads, stickers, anything really. Whatever you'd like to donate, we'll take it.
