Brooklyn Above Ground (BAG) is a coalition of irrepressible bands from Brooklyn cross-pollinating directly over the boundaries between rock and rap, folk and funk, swing and swank. This ear sweet compilation is a wide open door to the post-underground Brooklyn scene deeply rooted in the clubs of downtown New York.

Thanks to CD Baby, all proceeds from the sale of BAG 1 go to benefit World Hunger Year, a grass-roots organization founded by Bill Ayers and the late singer/songwriter Harry Chapin that has raised over $6 million in the fight to end hunger and poverty.

The bands in BAG are connected through music, friendship, and the greatest borough in the greatest damn city on the face of the planet: Brooklyn, New York! BAG was born in September 2000 when an e-mail was sent out to those bands asking who wanted to contribute a song to a compilation, and therefore, to the charity World Hunger Year. The response was a resounding "YEAH! ME!" and soon it was clear the project would be unstoppable. The cross-promotional possibilities were an obvious incentive, and since many of us struggle just to pay the rent on time, the chance to donate something so personal to charity came as a welcome outlet. BAG 1 is an extension of our collective love, our passion for music, and our never-ending dream to send both out into the world at every opportunity.

Every penny you spend on this CD will go directly towards helping hungry and impoverished people learn the skills they need to make their dreams come trueÂdreams like being a movie star, an astronaut, a scientist, a writer, or a hero to a son or daughterÂdreams far beyond getting a roof overhead and food on the tableÂdreams just like yours and mine.
