Home to Berklee School of Music and a long history of musicianship and music artistry, the burgeoning Boston music scene has been known for coming together in a crisis. Allston Pudding, a Boston-based music blog and supporter of that scene, were direct witness to the tragic Boston Marathon bombings & they wanted to help in any way they could.
In light of the explosions in Boston that killed 3 people and injured more than 100 others Monday, the blog began accepting submissions from artists who wanted to donate their tracks in an effort to raise charitable donations.
Today, they culled together and released a 130-song mixtape with all proceeds going to The One Fund. Allston Pudding will donate 100% of the proceeds from the mixtape to The One Fund as a means to provide ongoing relief to those affected by this tragic incident. The One Fund is a non-profit relief organization created by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino specifically to assist in the recovery from the Boston Marathon explosions.
Enough jibber-jabber: head over to Bandcamp and spend the measly $1 to get this great mixtape & give legitimate support to those actively engaged in recovery efforts.
