Join us on Giving Tuesday to support The Bay Bridged!
Even before recent national events, 2016 has been a challenging year in the San Francisco Bay Area. The high cost of living continues to challenge residents across the Bay Area, including so many in our local music community. Despite the challenges raised by our affordability crisis, however, the San Francisco Bay Area music scene is far from dying. As we've showcased every day on TheBayBridged.com and at events like the acclaimed Phono del Sol Music and Food Festival, the Bay Area scene contains countless talented musicians, many of whom have achieved or will grow to achieve well-deserved national acclaim. Through [...]
Phono del Sol players Born Ruffians talk band milestones, beer brewing, cult followings
Born Ruffians (photo: Laura Lynn Petrick) Born Ruffians are a band of enduring, humble sensibilities. Hailing from Ontario, the band has seen lineup changes (original drummer Steve Hamelin left the band to go back to school), label jumps (Warp to Yep Roc), and infamous reviews (Pitchfork gave their second record Say It a 3.8 rating), but through their four records and countless EPs, they've amassed a fervent family of fans, especially in the Bay Area, who gather lovingly around their brand of spastic, wry, cathartic indie rock. Ahead of their day in sun playing our Phono del Sol festival this [...]

The Bay Bridged Presents: Luke Sweeney at El Rio this Saturday
Another Saturday night is quickly approaching — where will you be? Celebrating the seventh night of Hanukkah? Spending an evening bundled under the covers because you're too cold to move? If you're still in need of some plans, we at the Bay Bridged have got you covered again. We're presenting Luke Sweeney and a couple other great local bands this Saturday at El Rio, and you're invited! Local rock 'n' roll favorite Luke Sweeney has spent the majority of late 2015 touring up and down the coast and, more recently, all around the Bay. Fittingly, he's closing out the year with his [...]
The Bay Bridged Presents: Fresh & Onlys at Hemlock Tavern this Saturday
“We’re stubborn assholes—down to the person, we all are,” said Tim Cohen, lead singer and guitarist of the Fresh & Onlys, perhaps San Francisco’s most beloved local band. “But that doesn’t take away from the fact that we’re talented, and unique and progressive — you can be all those things and still be an asshole.” Cohen used those terms to describe the tumultuous past several years for the band. The four-piece garage rock institution struggled to coalesce after Cohen moved to Arizona for a brief sojourn to raise his daughter, getting to the point where the band members hardly spoke [...]
