The Bay Bridged needs your help.

Photo: Ian Young Hi friends. It's your Content Director, Jody.  Had a talk with the other top brass here at TBB a few weeks ago to go over how we wanted to break this news, and we agreed we owe it to our readers to get real: COVID-19 has come for us, too. Since we started in 2006, our main source of funding has been local venues promoting upcoming concerts. It was a mutual and adoring relationship: They helped us produce our top-tier editorial content, and we got to hype up shows we were already stoked about, anyway. Now that there are [...]

The event was, by every measure, a great success, and we couldn't have done it without all of you who attended. We want to also extend our deepest thanks to Standard Deviant Brewing, M. Lockwood Porter, and all of the terrific local businesses that donated great prizes for our raffle. Giving Tuesday was the kickoff event for our ongoing 2016 Year-End Fundraiser. We've got a [...]

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.

As we've showcased every day on 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.
