For what is now a quarter of a century, Neil Young and his wife Pegi have been organizing the annual Bridge School Benefit, a two-day charity concert held in Mountain View, CA at the Shoreline Amphitheatre, usually sporting a better lineup than you could dream up yourself. The 25th anniversary of the monumental event continued this tradition, featuring performances from the likes of Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, Beck, Foo Fighters, Arcade Fire, and many more – including the man himself, Uncle Neil.

Update: Below, you can watch video of several collaborative highlights from day one, including Beck and Young performing the latter’s 1979 track “Pocahontas”; Vedder and Arcade Fire’s Régine Chassagne dueting “Tonight You Belong To Me”; Vedder and Beck tackling “Sleepless Nights”; Arcade Fire and Young taking on the CSNY classic “Helpless”; and Matthews Tim Reynolds, and Young covering “Oh! Susanna”.

Beck and Neil Young – “Pocahontas”:

Eddie Vedder and Régine Chassagne – “Tonight You Belong To Me”:

Eddie Vedder and Beck – “Sleepless Nights”:

Dave Matthews, Tim Reynolds, and Neil Young – “Oh! Susanna”:

Arcade Fire and New Young – “Helpless”:

As always, the proceeds benefit the Bridge School, assisting children with severe speech and physical impairments.

I was at this Saturday night show…SO happy u put this up so I could actually see what I thought I heard from the very way back of the crowd.  This show was way oversold, with people having to leave because they couldn’t find a spot to sit.  SO disappointed in the experience this year!

I haven’t seen any recordings from Sunday circulating (only Saturday was webcast, and these videos are all ripped from the webcast).

It’s possible some fans with quality recording equipment will post something, but I haven’t seen that happen yet.

By the way, the entire webcast is still streaming as a “replay.”  If you have a spare 7 hours and 54 minutes you can watch it in the top video at http://psychexfutureheart.wordpress.com/bridge-school-stream/
