Music City SF is a San Francisco hotel and rehearsal space that breathes life into the local and touring community of Bay Area networking musicians. This week, they released the first of many planned compilation albums by and for the Bay Area.

"Our goal is to give outsiders a picture of our thriving local music community here at Music City SF," said Alvie Adams, frontman for the blues-punk band Alvie and the Breakfast Pigs. "We give musicians at any experience level a place to make connections, practice affordably, and play shows."

All proceeds from Volume 1 will go towards Hip Hop for Change, an Oakland-based organization which is educating underprivileged youth through music. Some of the local artists on the compilation include Schlotman, Kandur, Agouti, and The Stu Tails, all of which are intimately involved in the Bay Area music community.

Touring bands that stay at Music City SF get rewarded with free rehearsal time. For another example of the plethora of good that Music City brings to the bay, check out this recent Music City Session featuring Mae Powell. Powell also contributed a track to the compilation.
