i know bridge school benefit is on the same dates as vegoose
27 & 28 of october, but it is usually an awesome show
anyone know who's playing it this year?
according to rolling stone magazine Neil Young will play as always,
and Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Counting Crows, Live, Collective Soul and Fionna Apple are rumored to be there
Is anyone gonna go?

If the Pumpkins played that means they gotta red eye it from New Orleans after their Voodo date. And I dont think it can happen cause they all play both days, only the undercard changes if I am correct.

I dunno, Billy Corgan does not seem nearly that nice of a person to help people in need.

I really really wanted to go when Sonic Youth played a few years back but couldn't get tickets. I'd go if I could get seats probably.

The bootleg of that is good. His cover of "After The Goldrush" is awesome.

Last year I wanted to see Trent Reznor and the string section. He ended up playing every song that would never get played normally. And a bunch of stuff from Still.

He's played Bridge at least once, so it would not be farfetched to see him there again.

Did he do "And All That Could Have Been"? I fucking loved that song back in the day.

The Pumpkins did a whole tour where they donated all ticket sales to charity. That should count for something.

I went to 8 bridge shows in a row then vegoose came along and I decided I would go that direction …. It is always a really nice show because of the kids and the reason for the show … there are always tears when they tell you who died since the last show … that is sad ….. I always went both days and usually got a seat in the 200’s because the 100’s are out of site or taken up by corporations and big contributors …. I hate the lawn at shoreline … they pack you in like sardines and the slope makes your toes feel like you have been skiing all day if you stand all day … but if you cant make vegoose, give the bridge benefit show consideration … the best thing about this event is the collorabation between the artists that are playing …. Seeing Eddie V and Neil sing some acoustic songs is something you may never get a chance again to see … and it is an acoustic event, but leaving one time, I heard someone say “that was the loudest acoustic show I have ever been too …. I have even donated to the school on years I didn’t go …. Cr****

did you have seats or lawn .... i think it is always easy to get lawn, even the day of the show, but seats, yikes ... i had an inside for a couple of years so i got 100's for free, but without that help, no way ... on craigslist they go for 100's of dollars each year .... grrrrr ... cr****

Pumpkins played Bridge School in 97.

1996 definitely had the best lineup though: Crazy Horse, Pearl Jam, Bonnie Raitt, Billy Idol (Day 2 Only), Pete Townshend (Day 1 Only), David Bowie, Patti Smith, Cowboy Junkies, and Hayden.

plugged in acoustic if they havent changed ... so electric yes and no ...
here is a link (although not up to date) of all the past shows ..http://hyperrust.org/Bridge/Benefit.html

.. great names in there .... and an odd mix ... like metallica, but then they are from the bay area, so it makes sense ... give to the school if you can .... peace ... cr****

Has anyone seen a schedule for this yet (or maybe someone who went to the Saturday show could comment on the schedule)?

Here's the setlist from last night that we saw:

Way Down in the Hole
Cold, Cold Ground
Little Drop of Poison
(joke: why don't shrimp and lobster give anything to charity? Because they're shellfish)
The Part You Throw Away
God's Away on Business
Day After Tomorrow
What Keeps Mankind Alive
(story: I bought the dying breath of Henry Ford on eBay. I also bought parrot diapers, though I don't own a parrot. Yet. I also bought a cheese sandwich with the image of the Virgin Mary)
Diamond in Your Mind

and the previous night's set list was the same, I think.

i'm so mad at myself for getting there late and missing 3/4 of regina. she looked and sounded beautiful though. mmj were great. it was a teaser of a set though. i also liked tegan & sara, tom w. was great and jerry lee was fun. we left after jerry lee.

metallica was a wretched trainwreck. we left after a few songs and heard up to 6 songs from the parking lot. it was sadly entertaining to watch the hardcore fans slowly deflating as their heroes let them down with funloving artistic drivel.

Yeah, L's right. Regina was a little bit too peppy and really into "the moment" and the "life-changing night" and "the experience of a lifetime." She too used all those phrases in one sentence.

Metallica's set list is hilarious if someone can find it. They embarrassingly opened with Rare Earth's "Celebrate."

Please Don't Judas Me (Nazareth cover)

I thought I was going to miss Regina, because 101 traffic suddenly became really bad around Palo Alto due to a vehicle on fire & engine blocking a lane), but I only missed the first few minutes. She was better than I expected, though a little too chipper. Tegan & Sara were better than I expected, too.

Was mostly there to see Tom Waits, who did not disappoint (though the sets in general were too short!) and left after Jerry Lee Lewis. Can't stand Metallica nor Neil Young :)
