Earlier today, Margaret Cho kicked off a 72-hour “pay what you want” sale of her Grammy-nominated album, Cho Dependent, that includes two unreleased songs of hers, with 20 percent of the proceeds donated to Immediate Justice, a charity devoted to empowering young women and gay people of color.
The 72-hour window began at noon July 12, 2011.
As it’s pay what you want, the person who pays/donates the most will earn a role as an extra in Cho’s music video for “Asian Adjacent,” to be filmed in L.A. on July 24. You’ll meet Cho and Grant Lee Phillips in addition to appearing in the video. Note: This reward does not include travel/lodging. The number-two donor will receive a prize package that includes a Cho Dependent tote bag, CHO HO tank top, album poster featuring photos with the musicians and a personalized/autographed copy of the album.
If Cho can get 500 people to pitch in, everyone also will receive the brand-new song, “Sexting,” by Sherry Vine featuring Cho.
Of course, this video snippet also explains it if you want a taste. Roll it!
