We already told you about the plans to release a new, three-DVD, two-CD box set celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the now-legendary Bridge School Benefit concerts. The set will feature some stunning performances from over the years by the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Pearl Jam, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, and others.

And now, thanks to a special series of screenings, you can watch the concert film on a big screen right here in the Bay Area -- the day after this weekend's Bridge School Benefit shows end.

The Bridge School 25th Anniversary concert film is screening at S.F.'s Embarcadero Center Cinema on Monday, Oct. 24. It'll be a perfect way to keep the flush of the concerts going after this weekend's benefit sets by Arcade Fire, Dave Matthews, Eddie Vedder, and more at Shoreline come to an end. (The film is also screening in Santa Rosa; check out details on all showings here.)

And if you still need more acoustic performances from some of the era's best performers, the new Bridge School box set comes out the very same day. Proceeds of course go to benefit the Bridge School itself.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
