Friend of Ropa, Clayton McCune, who has helped us out with plenty of Brixton product, isn’t just a great supporter, but also a talented country superstar! His band, The Lonesome Billies, is raising money for their latest album “It’s good to be lonesome!”. Check out their kickstarter, give them a listen, and support their drag-honky-tonk set (see below)!
We’ve set a goal of $8,000 to cover the costs of the album production and a west coast tour. We won’t make any money from this, we’re just hoping to break even! We have some traditional rewards such as early vinyl release, limited edition test pressings, etc. We also have some unique and fun rewards available to supporters: “Country Karaoke” where a supporter can perform their favorite traditional country tune while The Billies play as the house band. Or the “Queens Of Country” package: we’ll play an entire set of classic female led country songs by legends like Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn dressed in drag.
Let me know if you have any questions and thank you!!
