When Indiana passed a controversial law (RFRA- the Religious Freedom Restoration Act), backlash was great, entertainers and conventions threatened to boycott the state. Indianapolis label Joyful Noise Recordings had what they felt was a more positive response- a compilation supporting marriage equality, called "50 Bands & A Cat". Karl Hofstetter of Joyful Noise tells us about the compilation, and other things his label is up to.
