Bridge School Benefit Concert

In their 25th year of raising money for a worthy cause, Neil and Pegi Young put together a great lineup of artists this past weekend at the Bridge School Benefit concert. Two sold out days at Shoreline Amphitheatre made for a great day of musical entertainment. It was a great lineup, with returning names like Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, Norah Jones and Beck. Newcomers this year included Mumford & Sons and Arcade Fire, and both put on an outstanding performance. It was unfortunate that many people left before Arcade Fire went on, but it did open up the lawn a bit for those of us sticking around. Tony Bennett was certainly a different sound for the show, but it sounded great!
