Little Berlin is a non-profit arts and community organization founded in 2007. A gallery located in the heart of Kensington, it features local artists curated monthly by a different Little Berlin member. This past year, they received a $10,000 grant from the Knight Foundation to fund the Little Berlin Fairgrounds project, transforming a vacant lot across from the gallery into an open community art space and sculpture garden. The fairgrounds will be designed around featuring live performances, film screenings, children’s workshops, musical events, and more.
To help raise the matching money they need for the Knight Foundation grant, BITBY, Bands in the Backyard, is creating a 12″ vinyl, featuring all of the artists from the bitby.tv monthly series over the past year. Some of the proceeds funded by the vinyl will go towards the fairgrounds project. The acts on the album include: Break it Up, Wigwams, Heyward Howkins, Pet Milk, Oh! Pears, Arc in Round, Faux Slang, Psychic Teens, Ports of Call, Summer Fiction, Blayer Pointdujour, and Streetwalkers.
The kickstarter will run until Monday, July 23rd to raise their goal of $5,000. Watch the video for the kickstarter here. Below, you can watch BITBY videos from: Ports of Call and Oh!
