bands i digged:

Hall of mirrors - slow jam kinda like what youd hear from the 1975
The Box Tiger - sort of like a female singer version of the killers
The Deep North - female singer pop rock, kinda basic but i dig it
Twin Berlins - the strokes
Andrew and the TV Cowboys - ambient background music


Ok, i bought it for $50, a quarter of the way down theres enough there to interest me thoroughly, and a good cause.

I wasn't aware of the compilation, but I wrote and recorded a new song specifically for all of this. Please check it out and donate if you can.

I'd love to see a festival of Boston bands. Imagine like:

Dropkick Murphys
Four Year Strong
A Loss For Words
Bad Rabbits
Transit

That would be a sick show. I'm sure there are way more bands who'd be down to do it too.

Vanna would, Lions Lions would, Therefore I Am would most likely perform a one time reunion show, etc. When Boston is in need, you really see the Boston community come together for a common goal, in the music scene, and in general.

People can say what they want about Transit's new album, but they hit the nail on the head with the lyrics of Young New England, "If you're too drunk to walk along the streets of cobblestone, you know Boston never drinks alone, Boston never drinks alone." IE, Boston is family and support each other, strangers or not.
