Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, Drab, The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library, and 47 other Boston-are bands that do not include either Sophia or Michael as members are all on this pay-what-you-can compilation to benefit Planned Parenthood.
About: Spearheaded by Anngelle Wood (WZLX, Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble), 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. This 50 song pay-what-you-can compilation features some of the biggest names in New England music, from up-and-coming acts to tried-and-true hometown heroes to include exclusive digital singles from 2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble finalists Petty Morals (“Just a Game”); Parlour Bells (“Wetware”), Blackbutton (“Hospital Stay”), Hallelujah The Hills (“Affectionate Darlings 4 Life”), The Rationales (“All The While”), Corin Ashley (“Jellyfish”), Gene Dante and the Future Starlets (“Girl On A Unicycle [Safe Space Remix]”), Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling (“Making Friends”), John Powhida International Airport (“The Promised Land”), The Year Million (Something Better [PDH Remix]”), Apple Betty (“Skin Of My Teeth”) plus two previously released songs that exist no where else in digital form from White Dynomite (“Look Out Below”) and Ad Frank (“French Translation”).

The Boston Herald calls it a, “crash course in our corner of the rock world”
