With their ongoing kickstarter campaign scheduled to end in just two days on Janauary 6th, the new studio project coming to Southtown- Southtown Sound reached their $8,000 launch goal today. From the new studio’s kickstarter page:
We did it. We really did it. It feels like only yesterday when we were anxiously prepping this, totally unsure whether or not we could make this happen, but we did and it is all thanks to you. Everyone who has shared this campaign, contributed financially, or helped us out along the way; thank you so so very much. We will do our best to make you all proud of the work we hope to do here.
With that said, there has been some noticeable radio silence from our end (due to Kyle starting a new job, and a lot of busy schedules), so we would like to take this time to announce a few updates.
As far as construction goes, we have made a lot of progress! Thanks to Mario’s dad Jim, we have managed to hang a majority of the new insulation and drywall, and hope to have the rest up in the next week or two. Once the walls are up, sanded, and painted, we will be able to put in the new flooring which will be followed finally moving in equipment and furniture! We initially underestimated the project’s needs and ended up finding a lot of problems that we had to deal with, so we will be pushing back our opening a few weeks. Once we have a date finalized, we will be reaching out to our Kickstarter artists to solidify some time!
For other donors, we are waiting on the T-shirt design to come through, but we are hoping to have everything at least ready to be printed by the end of the month, and shipping will be followed shortly after. Keep an eye on your email so we can get your shirt sizes and mailing addresses!
Once again, we would just like to extend our sincerest gratitude to you all. We feel incredibly blessed with the outpour of support and love this project has recieved, it’s frankly hard to put into words. We love you all very much, and are looking forward to making 2017 a year to remember!
The kickstarter campaign will remain ongoing as the Studio has mapped out what excess funds can be used for in great detail as part of their kickstarter. Bands or musicians may also still want to donate in the few remaining days so they can guarantee recording time or utilize some of the kickstarter incentives. To donate and see the progress made on the kickstarter campaign, go here. We will be sure to keep you all updated with progress on the new studio in the coming weeks of this new year.
