Bridge School Benefit, the annual two-day, Neil Young-hosted acoustic concert at Shoreline, usually draws an interesting crowd of performers, and 2013 is no exception. The benefit has supported the school for individuals with severe speech and physical impairments founded by Young and his wife, Pegi, since 1987, and past lineups have included just about every famous name you can think of. (Though that hasn't always guaranteed a great show.) This year's event runs Oct. 26 and 27 at Shoreline Amphitheatre. Here's the lineup:


Queens of the Stone Age

My Morning Jacket

The Killers (Saturday only)

Elvis Costello

Diana Krall



Jenny Lewis

Yep, that's Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young up top. And yep, we're wondering what an acoustic Queens of the Stone Age show is going to be like, too. (Also: whether the group will play a regular show in the Bay Area in support of its excellent new album.)

In any event, Bridge School tickets go on sale this Friday, Sept, 13, at Ticketmaster. More info here.

  • 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.'"
