Tonight, we are pleased to hold our first ever fundraiser and biggest event yet called Regional Bias. We’ve been planning this night for several months now and we’ve got a lot of great stuff in store for the evening. Your attendance not only guarantees you a night of great entertainment, but every ticket purchased supports The Bay Bridged’s efforts to support the Bay Area indie music scene. We highly recommend that you purchase advance tickets!

What Your Ticket Gets You

– A free Happy Hour local art show co-curated by CityArt Gallery. The show begins at 7:30pm and is open to all ticketholders.

– Performances by four great San Francisco bands: French Miami, Adam Stephens and The Finite Plain, Or, the Whale (acoustic), and Leopold and his Fiction.

– DJs John Vanderslice and Joshua Rampage (maus haus) performing throughout the night.

– A sampling of great Bay Area foods available for small donations, courtesy of Slow Club/Serpentine, Sneaky’s BBQ and Bi-Rite Market.

– A raffle featuring tickets to Outside Lands, Treasure Island, and “A Flight of the Bay Area’s Best Venues.”

How Your Support Helps The Bay Bridged

The Bay Bridged began as a labor of love, and has evolved into a fiscally sponsored nonprofit organization committed to championing the best in San Francisco Bay Area music through our blog, podcast, live events, compilations and other endeavors. The nonprofit framework is important to us–we don’t expect The Bay Bridged to replace our other jobs and we wouldn’t be interested in making the compromises that would likely allow that to happen. Instead, we’ve been able to create and grow our content offerings by relying on the amazing contributions of our dedicated staff, and with the help of supportive local advertisers and partners.

In order to sustain our ongoing projects and embark on new ones, however, we need to spend money that we don’t have, which is why we’re holding Regional Bias. As savvy concertgoers, we realize that simply calling something a fundraiser or a benefit isn’t enough to make it worth your dollar, so we’ve tried to make this night one of the best parties you’ll go to all year. We’re supremely excited about all of the bands, DJs, artists and food vendors and whether you’re interested in supporting The Bay Bridged or not, you’re unlikely to find a more diverse lineup of Bay Area’s innovators all housed under one roof. We hope to see you there!
