Kickstarter: First Annual Meeting of Optimists Vol. 2

We’re heading back to the Bombshelter in Chicago next month to record new songs with Dan Precision for First Annual Meeting of Optimists Vol.2. Help us get there & claim some cool rewards by backing our Kickstarter Project!

New Music: First Annual Meeting of Optimists Vol. 2!

By the end of this month, we’ll be launching a Kickstarter Campaign to put more music in your ears and taps in your toes. Here’s a preview and advance notice that we’re going to be asking if we can “borrow, like, five bucks.”

First Annual Meeting of Optimists Vol. 2?
Where’s Vol. 1?!?
Well, we wanted to show you that we were serious about the project, so Vol. 1 is already completed. In fact, we’ve included it as a reward for helping fund the production of Vol. 2!
Here’s our vision: We have a total of 13 new songs that we’re planning to release for the First Annual Meeting of Optimists project. In late March 2019, we spent a few days with Dan Precision at The Bombshelter in Chicago recording, and then a couple of weeks talking, texting, and emailing until the mixes were complete. We are tentatively scheduled to return in September to knock out (or rock out) whatever tracks we’re able to fund through this campaign.
We see this Vol. 2 campaign going one of several ways…
    1. We fail and nobody gets to hear the other 10 songs. 😦
    2. We fund Vol. 2 and start the same cycle over in October for Vol. 3.
    3. We double our goal & fund Vol. 2 and 3 and start the same cycle over in October for Vol. 4
    4. We DOMINATE our goal & fund Vol. 2-4… then we can start finishing the songs that are coming out after these (Seriously, they are already started).
We will be thrilled if you’re able to help us start with Vol. 2!

/YEARS\
Years are determined to tell the truth. Pop music doesn’t have to suck and it doesn’t have to be neutered. Years’ melodies are both catchy and hard-hitting and their lyrics are honest.

/June IND\
Veteran local musicians and philanthropists Chris June and Emily Larimer playing angsty, smart, pop songs! Mostly original with some choice, unconventional cover tunes thrown in for good measure.

Artist Brandon Ahnert Joins the First Annual Meeting of Optimists

It was a nice, cold/rainy November morning hanging out with artist Brandon Ahnert to work on “Ok, Alright,” inching us forward with our First Annual Meeting of Optimists Project. 

First Annual Meeting of Optimists is a multimedia art and music project featuring 13 new June IND tracks accompanied by song-inspired visuals from area artists.

As we did with artist Stacy Bogan, we reached out to Brandon by asking, “Can you paint the face of the person that this song is about.”

From there, we gave him a track, lyric sheet and a canvas, met up with him at his home studio, and hit record.


Connect with Brandon Ahnert on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!


“Ok, Alright” is a tribute to Main Street, mom & pop, shopping small, buying local, and everyone busting their ass to make a living.

You’ll be able to hear “Ok, Alright” & more First Annual Meeting of Optimists tunes LIVE on December 21, 9 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Saloon for People’s Live presents: YEARS / JUNE IND / What About Jim.
