Reflecting is always a worthwhile exercise, especially when it comes to music scenes and bands. So join us today and listen to a mixtape from The Bay Bridged that went live four years ago featuring only East Bay acts. The track listing is an awesome mix of still-active and retired groups — all of whom will provide some ear-candy for those of us feeling a little nostalgic today.
Here's the text from the 2011 post:

This podcast episode is part mixtape and part mea culpa. Even though our name is The Bay Bridged, we periodically get people calling us out on our SF-centric coverage of Bay Area indie music. In recognition of all of the great music coming from the other side of the Bay, this mix features only East Bay artists — 15 of them — spanning a wide variety of styles and sounds. The collection shows that, just like in SF, there's a diverse batch of talent in Oakland and beyond that's well worth checking out.
Standard disclaimers here: obviously, this mix is not intended to be comprehensive, and we've omitted a few artists who have been showing up in a lot of our podcasts lately (sorry Shannon and the Clams, tUnE-YarDs, and Bare Wires!).
