Cause & Affects: Download this new 31-track Keep Safe Boston comp to support Fenway Health

 
>  

Keep Safe Boston has delivered another bang-up compilation of Boston rock and roll.

The local charity and awareness group led by Boston Emissions host and Rock And Roll Rumble curator Anngelle Wood today released a 31-track local comp designed to raise money for Fenway Health. The compilation, which features music by Abbie Barrett, Matt York, Psychic Dog, Magen Tracy and the Missed Connections, Future Carnivores, Brendan Boogie and the Broken Gates, and two dozen others, is available to download on a pay-what-you-want basis via Bandcamp.

“Fenway Health has been on the front lines in the battle for both the LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS communities for nearly 50 years — long before we saw legislation being made,” writes Wood. “This was definitely the path I planned to take with this year’s project — then Orlando happened. The political climate is fierce, and one where not much compassion exists. We have to make moves to change that, this is one move I hope others will make with me.”

The compilation is the first move (though, actually the latest move by Keep Safe Boston), and Friday night delivers the second: a benefit show at Thunder Road in Somerville that features comp participants Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys, Parlour Bells, usLights, and Kue the Sun, a project featuring Georgio Broufas from Western Education.

Wood says the show will also double as the Army of Broken Toys’ Boston Halloween show, which is certainly notable in its own right, and Boston Emissions eighth anniversary celebration.

“There is a lot going on,” adds Wood.
