NEWS: Bridge School 25th Anniversary DVD/CD Announced

Based on the response to the lineup post on the annual Bridge School Benefit (set for the weekend of Oct. 22-23, 2011 again in Mountain View, CA), it’s pretty clear that this event is something that people really look forward to every year. A lot of folks are very loyal to the fantastic cause that is the Bridge School and it’s great to see all these amazing artists sign on, year after year.

The team behind the good cause just recently announced that they’re releasing a 3 DVD and/or 2 CD collection on October 24th (right after this year’s benefit) celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the event. With everyone from Neil Young himself to Fleet Foxes, Thom Yorke and Metallica, this release is definitely going to be something worth picking up. Shepard Fairey designed the cover art you see above. All proceeds from the release will go directly back to the Bridge School.

Here’s the trailer for the release:
