    Been trying to think of who could/should play.

    I'd love for Bright Eyes to play. That would be fucking magical. Also, maybe DeVotchKa? I can never predict the older random bands though.

    It was more about having Pearl Jam being there again. Vedder showing up for this wouldnt be too suprising, but Pearl Jam repeating is overkill. Besides, if youre doing a 25th anniversary, you bring in artists covering the whole time. So Vedder alone will suffice.

    Calm down, folks. Pearl Jam plays Bridge School every other year, and they played last year. Which, according to my math, means they won't be there this year.

    Per Bridge School's website, the line up will be announced tomorrow! I'll post it as soon as it goes live.

    Dave Matthews is playing the pre-show gala with Neil and the Grand, so I would suspect it's another year for Dave Matthews.

    Lol I know it's not very wise to admit on these boards but I am a huge DMB fan. Been to several dozen shows. Just coming home from the caravan at the Gorge. So I'd be happy if Dave played in some capacity.

    Still nada. A time for the line-up drop would've been nice. Then again, what do they care? It's selling out regardless.

    Seriously. That lineups is pretty good to me. Can always use the DMB set to go take a piss or something. But, all in all not too shabby. might have to make a trek back up the the bay for this. Only other time went was for Bridge School XX. All i know is gonna get seats this time. The lawn there sucks, especially at night.

    I've always wondered where the general dislike for Dave Matthews on this board came from. Anyone I've played him to at least finds him to be talented and enjoyable in some way. Plus the band has one of the best drummers alive.
