To help celebrate the holidays and give back to the community, the Silicon Valley tech community partied the night away during the second annual Silicon Valley Rocks event in San Francisco. Organized by Allison Murdock, this awesome event helps raise money and awareness for Music in Schools Today (MuST) and features some of the best and brightest of Silicon Valley in perhaps a totally new light from what you’d imagine of folks in the tech scene – musicians. With their dual identities in place, these geeks, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, etc shed their work clothes and donned on their band attire to jump on stage to help raise funds to support bringing back and keeping music in schools.

Some of the bands that performed included:

  • Farewell Typewriter
  • Marrow
  • The Tell-Tale Heartbreakers
  • The Open Source Band
  • The Whitehalls
  • Corrine Marcus & The Kindred Spirits

Overall, with the silent auction, ticket sales and the generosity of those in the Silicon Valley, maybe Silicon Valley Rocks did some good and helped raise some much needed money for the children.

Here are some photos of the event:
