Madison’s Project Lodge seeks funds to grow Creative Class

The Project Lodge

Arts and music incubator, The Project Lodge, has a Kickstarter fund raising campaign in progress to meet an $8,000 capital outlay goal for the non-profit DIY upstart. Known as a beacon for Madison's aspiring artists, musicians and all-around creative types, the Project Lodge has hosted a wide variety of events over the last four years in its East Johnson Street location.

We’ve seen many great indie shows in this space including Zola Jesus, Julian Lynch, Titus Andronicus and All Tiny Creatures among others. Many times bands that play the Project Lodge would've probably skipped Madison on their touring schedules if it weren’t for the existence of the venue.

A benefit show featuring local bands was held at the Majestic Theatre a week ago and a second fund raising event is taking place this Sunday at the High Noon Saloon. Check out the details below:

Rock of the Arts made a $200 donation to the Kickstarter campaign because we feel the Project Lodge is an important ingredient in Madison’s vibrant DIY arts scene. Part of our bounty for donating is a copy of the forthcoming Project Lodge 2012 Music Compilation with help from Madison's Mine All Mine Records. The full compilation will be available Feb 21st at the end of the Kickstarter campaign, and it will feature 32 tracks by Madison bands clocking in at nearly 2 hours!

Physical CDs will only be available at benefit shows (Jan 21st and Jan 29th) and as a prize for donating to the Kickstarter. Here is a preview of the compilation. Keep the Project Lodge vibe alive in Madison! Please donate today!
