This year's Bridge School Benefit is streaming live on from Mountainview, Calif.'s Shoreline Amphitheatre - and you can watch it right here. The show begins at 5:00 PM PST (8:00 PM EST) and scheduled acts include Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Arcade Fire, Queens of the Stone Age, My Morning Jacket, Elvis Costello, Jack Johnson, Fun., Jenny Lewis and Diana Krall. As always, everybody will be performing completely acoustic. 

Neil Young and his wife Pegi founded the Bridge School in 1986 to help children with severe speech and physical impairments. The school receives the vast majority of it's funding through the annual two-day shows. Recent years have seen unplugged performances  from Guns N' Roses, Buffalo Springfield, Pearl Jam, Beck, The Smashing Pumpkins and many others. Neil Young often sits in with the performers.

The show marks the first performance by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young since they wrapped the Freedom of Speech tour in 2006.

Song Stories


The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
