Since 2013 has been a beacon for Bay Area bands. We've hosted hundreds of in-studio interviews, dozens of live sets on air, and nearly 50 concerts in the Bay Area. We've paid more than $30,000 to local bands and support. And in 2021 we want to do even more for the local music scene.

We're seeking new Bay Area artists and bands to feature, meaning those located in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, or Sonoma counties.

Here are some ways your Bay Area band can get involved:

Submit Your Music for Airplay

Submit your music here to be considered for:

  • the airwaves
  • a feature in the blog

You can also upload your music videos for inclusion on

  • the YouTube channel
  • our cable access show Ummm, TV?
SUBMIT MUSIC HERE Instagram Takeover

We want to help you raise awareness of your music while everyone is social distancing!

We will assign you a date for your takeover. On that day:

1. You can post on our main feed, plus whatever stories you'd like for 24 hours. Get weird with it!
3. We'll change our bio link to your bandcamp or website for 24 hours
4. We'll also cross-post your content on our Twitter (4k) Facebook (5.6k) and email a digest to our newsletter subscribers (2k)

It's a small thing, but we hope it can help make a difference!

APPLY HERE in-studio mini-set

whether you have an album or show to promote or just want to find new fans, dropping by at the Ferry Building for a brief interview and in-studio set (well, really it's more of an out-studio set) is a fun way to connect. You'll be singing and playing into a mic hanging out a window, but that's all part of the fun!

Play a Virtual Besties Bash*

our Besties Bashes are a fun, low key community event that feels like a living room show you play for all your friends. Most of the bands we book are twee (either in genre or spirit) but we welcome smaller bands of many genres who aren't too loud so we don't annoy our neighbors. Since the pandemic, we've been hosting these events on Twitch, so you don't even have to leave your bedroom!
