Bridge School Concert Lineup: Wilco, Death Cab… Josh Groban?
Alt-country legend Neil Young's annual charity gig unveils an eclectic list of guest stars.
Every fall, Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit concert goes down in Mountain View, CA, featuring an illustrious lineup of performers. And 2008 is no exception, with Young and his upcoming tour mates Wilco and Death Cab for Cutie set to take the stage, as well as Smashing Pumpkins, Cat Power, ZZ Top, Norah Jones, and Jack Johnson [via Pitchfork]. Also joining the lineup: Your Mom’s favorite new pop-Pavarotti, operatic crooner Josh Groban. (Not to worry — you’ll have to hit the restrooms at some point.)
The show, co-founded by Young’s wife Pegi and now in its 22nd year, will hit the Shoreline Amphitheatre the weekend of October 25-26 with proceeds benefiting the Bridge School’s programs, which assist children with severe speech and physical impairments.
