On October 7th through 9th and then again October 14th to 16th, Desert Trip will feature no less than SIX Classic Rock Bands opening for each other and headlining for each other in a way we probably will never see again. Who wouldn’t want to be living in Indio California that week (where else is Mick and Keith and Paul and Pete and Roger going to go that week?)
The following weekend after Desert Trip has wrapped, Neil Young presents his annual Bridge School Benefit Concert October 22nd and 23rd at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View California. Neil will be rocking with Promise of The Real with appearances by Willie Nelson (who’ll probably join his son Lukas in Promise Of The Real) Dave Matthews, Cage the Elephant, k.d. Lang and wait for it Roger Waters and (crank it up a notch) Metallica!
The 30th annual Bridge School Benefit funds the operation of The Bridge School who’s mission is “to ensure that individuals with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of augmentative and alternative means of communication (AAC) and assistive technology (AT) applications and through the development, implementation and dissemination of innovative life-long educational strategies.”
