After announcing a solid-but-not-eyeball-popping lineup for this year's Bridge School Benefit concert, Neil and Pegi Young have continued adding to it -- most notably bringing in Tom Waits for the Sunday, Oct. 27, edition, marking the man's first full live show in five years. Now, it turns out Arcade Fire is hopping on Saturday's lineup, too, in one of a handful of shows promoting the band's new album, Reflektor, which comes out Oct. 29.

This news follows last week's announcement that Jack Johnson was added to the bill for the annual benefit concert, which raises money for a school that helps children with severe speech and physical impairments. The Killers, meanwhile, have been removed from the lineup, and frankly seem to be kind of imploding right now.

In case you're struggling to keep all this straight, here's what the Bridge School lineup currently looks like, not necessarily in order of appearance:

Saturday, Oct. 26

CSNY

Queens of the Stone Age

My Morning Jacket

Arcade Fire

Jack Johnson

Elvis Costello

Diana Krall

fun.

Heart

Jenny Lewis

Sunday, Oct. 27

CSNY

Lawn tickets still seem to be available for both days of Bridge School.

  • 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.'"
