When Alice Bag founded her Los Angeles-based band Bags in 1977, it became one of the first punk groups ever led by a Chicana artist. Now, she's reaching out to help fund her second LP following her 2016 self-titled album Alice Bag.
In her Kickstarter campaign, she states, "I'm not a fan of corporate backing for the arts (especially when my music is critical of the establishment), but I do believe that a small, engaged community can achieve big things."
After working with many bands and writing two books, Bag says crowdfunding helped her find her way back to music.
“Punk isn’t dead; it’s up to us to keep that spirit alive. Punk will be relevant as long as there is sh-t that needs to be addressed,” Bag said.
To help fund her second LP, donate here.
