Lemon Lounge Fundraiser!

$4,516 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 93 people in 22 months

The Lemon Lounge is EXPANDING. We're a DIY renegade listening room on Austin's east side. 

We have an exciting opportunity to expand our programming this fall. This has come sooner than we'd expected, and we're excited to see what the future brings.

Your support will help us meet our financial needs to sign our new lease and bring in a few pieces of much needed equipment.

What's a listening room? We get asked that a lot. A listening room cultivates an intimate, unforgettable connection between artists and audiences. We encourage folks to put their phones away, to listen, and really experience the music. 

Lemon Lounge started in a living room.  I eventually started throwing pop up shows all over town - late night after hours in restaurants, in music venues, in parking lots. The closures of multiple beloved listening room venues pushed me to dream bigger.

The project has evolved into a full blown music venue incubating inside the event space at Wright Brothers Brew & Brew, throwing shows 2-3 times a week. We have exciting opportunity to expand our programming (sooner than we thought!) for the fall season.

We need a little help making our space the best that it can be.

What the funds will do:

* secure the space for the next year and a half
* purchase much needed sound/lighting equipment
* pay rent
* print materials - new signage and posters
* website - transfer domain, design, hosting
* staffing for larger scale special events

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for all of your support. Every dime raised will be put to work. Listening rooms are rare these days, and we're thrilled to be a place of support for artists in Austin and beyond.

Hello all!

We've extended our deadline until 12/31. That's when we pull this thing offline and move into the new year of awesomeness that is Lemon Lounge.

I want to personally thank each and every one of you for supporting us over the last year and a half. It's been so amazing to have a steady space to showcase independent local and touring artists and we couldn't do any of it without you. Thank you.

We'll be throwing a big ol' appreciation party for all of our supporters on January 19, 2018. Everyone that has supported our crowdfunding campaigns, joined our membership club, or joined my personal Patreon page, will receive a VIP invite to this event. We'll be offering complimentary drinks, food, live music, a fun photobooth, and more.

Join us! Your donation to this GoFundMe campaign is your ticket in. Festivities kick off at 8p. #party
