Brick City Records, Ohio University’s student-run record label, created a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their end-of-the-year showcase. The label has set a goal to raise $500 by March 3rd. Donations will be used to cover promotional materials, merchandise and live production costs for the end-of-the-year showcase on April 20.
Brick City Records, now a School of Media Arts and Studies capstone, was formerly a student organization at Ohio University. Since becoming a class, it has obtained the structure and mentorship the label needs to perform at its full potential. “As a past member and now department head of Brick City, I have witnessed the increase in artistic expectations as well as student support of the label. With access to an operational budget for each consecutive year, students will be able to professionally execute their creative endeavors to live up to rising expectations and carry on the Brick City legacy,” said Head of Publicity, Ryan Carter. While this is not the first year for Brick City Records, members are hoping that with the help of donors, it will be the best.
Contributors can choose to donate at one of four tiers - $10, $25, $50, $100 - to receive a gift in return, or they can donate a custom amount. Tier one contributors will receive two tickets to the showcase, tier two contributors will receive two tickets and a poster, and tier three contributors will receive a Brick City Records t-shirt in addition to the former. “Super Sponsors” who donate $100 or more will receive all merchandise listed and will be announced during the showcase.
The record label consists of 17 students who are all hoping to get the resources they need to produce a memorable show and see their work throughout the academic year finally come together.
