Arcade Fire's Win Butler at Bridge School yesterday.
  • Arcade Fire's Win Butler at Bridge School yesterday.

Missed Bridge School? We did, too. But now, instead of sighing deeply and conjuring overly rosy daydreams of what we missed by skipping the trek down to Mountain View this past weekend, we have YouTube to actually show it to us. After the jump, check out a nicely produced video of Arcade Fire's entire set from yesterday, along with links to a few more videos from the annual benefit concert.

Both this set and Beck's featured cameo performances from Bridge School founder Neil Young. You can find links to these and more videos over on Pitchfork.

And if you're still hungry for more Bridge School, note that tonight only, at 7 p.m., you can screen a new documentary on the 20-year-old benefit concert at the Embarcadero Center Cinema here in S.F. The film is part of a Bridge School box set that's also out today. Some of the proceeds from the box set, like the concert tickets, go to benefit the Bridge School, an institution for physically challenged children.

  • 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.'"
