confessions of a would-be hipster presents: plastic snow

Confessions of a Would-Be Hipster is proud to present Plastic Snow, a Los Angeles-based holiday and winter compilation. Featuring sixteen of our favorite local artists, it's an eclectic mix (much like us) of the best the local LA scene has to offer...at least we think so.

What's better than home-grown music? Using what we love to make the world a better place. 100% of the profits from Plastic Snow go to benefit Los Angeles' longest running homeless shelter, Midnight Mission. Their stats for what they've accomplished in the last year (available on their website) are simply staggering, and we are honored to assist in fundraising for 2009. If you're LA-based, consider taking a tour - it's an incredibly humbling experience.

It goes without saying that none of these artists received any compensation for their work on this album. So for heaven's sake, if any of these songs catch your fancy, be sure to show the musicians some love. Buy albums, buy concert tickets, buy 'em pie...
