Grass Roots- The San Francisco Songwriters Coalition
- by Drew Pearce

On September 1, at 12 Galaxies in San Francisco, musicians Jeff Symonds and Jerry Barker staged the opening night of their new ongoing event, The San Francisco Songwriters Coalition. From what I hear through Stacy Kray, it was a
hell of a party. The first show featured performances by local heroes
Megan Slankard and her band, Ryan Auffenberg, Joel Streeter and the
SFSC All-Stars performing The Beatles' Abbey Road. I absolutely love
the idea and the fact that these guys are taking matters into their
own hands to create more grassroots support of the local music
community. With Bay Area venues closing left and right, musicians have
to make their own opportunities wherever they can.

Check out The San Francisco Songwriters Coalition Thursday nights at
12 Galaxies, 2565 Mission Avenue in SF
