Keep Safe Boston, an upstart community organization founded by Boston radio deejay and local music scene advocate, Anngelle Wood, has announced its inaugural event to benefit Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts on Wednesday, December 10th (Human Rights Day) at Brighton Music Hall in Allston, MA. In support of the upcoming show, the organization has also released a 50-song music compilation comprised of local musicians and previously unreleased tracks.

The Keep Safe Boston movement is an effort to foster a safer and more compassionate community. “We are using goodwill, compassion, and music to give voice, raise awareness and remind us to look out for one another,” states Wood in a recent press release.

The event will feature 2014 Boston Music Award nominees Parlour Bells and The Color and Sound, as well as Boston rock mainstay Corin Ashley (of The Pills!), up-and-coming lo fi trio Drab, indie pop outfit The Rationales, and hip hop artist Jass Bianchi. Boston comedian Jody Sloane will act as event emcee.

About Keep Safe Boston

​Keep Safe Boston is a community organization and movement to reach out to artists, musicians, college campuses, area politicians, and activists to join us in fostering a safer, more compassionate community. It was a simple idea, to keep the relevant conversations active, to remind us to look out for one another, and to give voice to the issues that affect us. Keep Safe Boston is a response, a call to action.

Initially, founder and event producer Anngelle Wood wished to honor the memory of the women lost in the Brookline, Mass clinic shootings in 1994. Keep Safe Boston is an effort to bring people together much the same way the Boston music community responded 20 years ago. With respect to all of the families involved we do not wish to intrude on their healing, will keep them in our thoughts and remember them quietly.
