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 hundreds of talented artists, many of whom have achieved or will grow to achieve well-deserved national acclaim.
Through our work, The Bay Bridged provides critical exposure for local artists, especially emerging artists struggling to gain awareness early in their careers. Showcasing the best of the San Francisco Bay Area independent music scene has been out nonprofit's mission for the past ten years, but we can only continue to do this with your support.
We're inviting you to show your continued support for The Bay Bridged by joining us on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, at a very special Giving Tuesday event at Standard Deviant Brewing. While you enjoy performances by some great local musicians, free beer (while supplies last), and barbecue available from Sneaky's BBQ, you'll also have the opportunity to learn more about the mission of The Bay Bridged and why your support is so important.
Advance tickets are on sale right now! Your support helps us continue to champion San Francisco Bay Area independent music, so we hope to see you on Giving Tuesday!
