To our readers,
After an incredible 15 years, The Bay Bridged will be ceasing operations on October 1, 2021.
The Bay Bridged began in San Francisco in 2006 with a small podcast premised on a big idea: that even in an age of increasing access to digital music from around the globe, local music scenes mattered. We eventually blossomed into a multifaceted local music nonprofit, creating a blog that reached 60,000 readers every month and producing festivals and concerts like The Bay Brewed, Rock Make Street Festival, and, of course, Phono Del Sol — all of which championed discovery and celebration of the great musicians that have called, and still call, the Bay Area home. Over the years, we’ve produced over 400 podcasts, 12,000 blog posts, and hundreds of free and low-cost live events. It has been our honor to use these platforms to elevate local music for a decade and a half.
As Bay Area music gets back on its feet, we’re so excited to see venues and artists setting up shows again, and the commitment many have shown to keeping the community safe in the process. We’re confident in the current and future state of our arts scene. San Francisco is no stranger to rebuilding — you guys got this, and as individuals we will always support you.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all for listening along with us and supporting our organization for the last decade and a half. To paraphrase some local heroes, it’s been real and it’s been fun. And yes, it was all real fun.
See you at the show.
