Since The Bay Bridged started in 2006, we’ve seen a lot of things change. Over the last ten years, we’ve witnessed some of our favorite bands skyrocket in popularity, while others have broken up. We’ve seen great new venues open, and others close. We’ve also watched as economic uncertainty has challenged so many of our region’s musicians.
But despite all of this turmoil and change, our mission has remained the same. For the past ten years, The Bay Bridged has been — and remains — singularly dedicated to supporting the San Francisco Bay Area music scene.
Now is the time to build on this work together.
Today, we’re launching our 2015 year end fundraiser and we’re asking for your support with a tax-deductible donation. Since our founding 10 years ago, The Bay Bridged has provided a critical platform for local musicians through our award-winning blog and acclaimed local music festivals.
But we can’t do it alone. We need your support to continue to build The Bay Bridged into the local music champion that San Francisco truly needs and deserves.
To show our appreciation, we’ve gathered a number of great perks for donors via our Indiegogo campaign. Every gift of $15 or more will get you a digital download of The Bay Bridged 10th Anniversary Compilation, an exclusive collection of 41 rare and never-heard-before tracks from many of our favorite local artists including Sonny Smith, Tumbleweed Wanderers, Lia Rose, Andrew St. James, Kelley Stoltz, The Soft White Sixties, Ezra Furman, and many more!
We’ve also got awesome t-shirts and hoodies, tickets to Phono del Sol, the chance to co-host a podcast with The Bay Bridged co-founders, the opportunity to help us book a show and then invite your own personal guest list, and more.
To learn more about our mission and meet our staff, please join us for the signature event of our fundraiser: a special Giving Tuesday event at Cease & Desist in the Mission District on Tuesday, December 1. Tickets include complimentary craft cocktails, bite-sized eats, and a raffle with great prizes. All proceeds benefit The Bay Bridged and tickets are on-sale now!
