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.
