Hi all! It’s time to FUNDRAISE. Here’s why:
Performers have been in the MTA for over a hundred years, and have been legal since 1985.
But many station managers, police officers, and passers-by don’t know that we’re legal. Consequently, of the hundred-odd performers I’ve talked to, almost everyone has been made to leave a station by police, and more than a few have been handcuffed and taken away — for playing music!
We believe one of the best ways to address this is by getting the word out there: Music is Legal! But how do you communicate that information to five million daily riders, thousands of police, and hundreds of station managers?
Well, fortunately, there are hundreds of us. So here’s our idea: we make t-shirts like this one:
Then we give one to every performer, for free, and ask them to play once a week with the shirt. We’re sure it’ll reach millions of MTA riders. Can you imagine a subway where police and station managers celebrate music? We think it’s possible.
Do you want to help make this a reality? Go to our Kickstarter project, “Music is Legal!,” and make a pledge. When we meet our funding goal, we’ll make 100 of these shirts — and you’ll receive one as a reward.
And please: help spread the word by linking to the project or to this post. Have a question or a suggestion? Contact us!
