Time is running out! Help us support local music in 2018!

2018 is almost here and we need your help! As the new year quickly approaches, there's still time to help our local music community by supporting The Bay Bridged. There's no denying it: 2017 has been a really tough year locally and around the world. But throughout all of the year's struggles, the Bay Area music community remains a wellspring of creativity, inspiration, and hope. For the past eleven years, The Bay Bridged has provided critical exposure for local musicians, especially emerging performers struggling to gain awareness early in their careers. As the new year approaches, we can only continue [...]

Psst. Hey. We’re still taking donations.

DUCKWRTH at Phono del Sol, 2017 (photo: Paige Parsons) Hey. Hey there. Our IRL fundraiser may have happened last week, but did you know we're still taking donations? The Bay Bridged is a nonprofit, and this is the time of year we ask for a little support from the public to help boost us for the coming year. Think of it like a PBS pledge drive, but shorter, less frequent, and with less of a promise of Ken Burns documentaries. If you couldn't make it out last week but still want to ensure that the Bay Area music scene stays [...]

We're back to remind you that there's still room for you at our end-of-year fundraising event at Standard Deviant next month.

We need your help.

We need your help. The mission of The Bay Bridged is to encourage public appreciation of San Francisco Bay Area independent music and to provide unique opportunities for local musicians to perform, receive exposure, collaborate, and create original works.

But we can't do it alone. Today, we're launching our end-of-the-year fundraising drive. Through your donations, we're better able to produce unique live events, intriguing feature stories, and [...]

Our holiday fundraiser party is three weeks away! RSVP now.

I don't mean to alarm you all, but tomorrow is Thanksgiving. After that, we dive headfirst into the holiday season and all the chaos that comes with it. While there will be myriad opportunities to do some good over the next few weeks, we're willing to bet none are quite as fun as our Holiday Fundraiser. You may or may not know that The Bay Bridged is a nonprofit. You likely do know, however, that we're focused on supporting local music in the Bay Area, helping it thrive in a social landscape that currently leans a little more toward industry [...]
