bridge school benefit film – tonight!

October 24, 2011

My apologies for the long absence y’all – I just got back from a week in Washington, DC. I was there for work but I did have a chance to catch The Milk Carton Kids at their show on Friday in Vienna, Virginia. As usual they delivered a beautiful evening of music. speaking of beautiful, for the past 25 years Neil Young and his wife Pegi have been responsible for putting together one of the most consistently marvelous musical events of the year: The Bridge School Benefit Concert. Since 1986 this special annual gathering has hosted some of the brightest stars in music, many performing rare stripped-down acoustic sets. The concert raises funds for the Bridge School, an organization that works with severely disabled children.

Those of us who have wished for years to make the trek to the Shoreline Amphitheater to join in this uniquely wonderful occasion are now in luck. To mark the 25th Anniversary the best of the Bridge School Benefit concerts is coming to DVD. And for one night only, the film will be playing in theaters across the country. I will be at Edina Cinema here in Minneapolis tonight, and can’t wait to see these historic performances on the big screen, with theater-quality sound. Here is a complete list of participating venues – hopefully there’s one near you!
