LiveNation today announced the lineup for this year's Bridge School Benefit -- Neil Young's annual show for the school he helped found for his son -- and, well, wow: In addition to the regulars, the classic '60s outfit Buffalo Springfield is reuniting for the show, minus two original members who've sadly passed on. Best known as the L.A. folk-rock band that helped launch the careers of Young and Stephen Stills, Springfield's most famous song is by far "For What It's Worth," which was iconic even before it was used in Forrest Gump.

But that's not the only highlight on the bill: Elton John performs on the second day of the concert, Billy Idol on the first, and Grizzly Bear both days. We haven't even mentioned Pearl Jam, Modest Mouse, or Elvis Costello yet.

Bridge School this year runs on October 23 and 24 at Shoreline Amphitheatre. Tickets go on sale this Sunday at 10 a.m. The rest of the lineup isn't too shabby either -- see it after the jump.

  • 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.'"
