Over the weekend, Neil Young held his 27th Annual Bridge School Benefit. The entire 8-hour performance is now available online, featuring performances by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, My Morning Jacket, Elvis Costello, Arcade Fire and more. Neil jams with Arcade Fire on a new song inspired by a dream that Win Butler had. When he woke up and transcribed the song, he realized it sounded like something Neil would have written, so it’s amazing to see them playing it together. 

The Arcade Fire set begins at 5:45:00 (the new song begins at 6:07:00).

On October 12th, if you’re willing to swallow your pride and go to Times Square, you can catch a free show from Grizzly Bear, My Morning Jacket, Divine Fits, and The Wallflowers, and a DJ set by James Murphy. It’s all  part of the upcoming CBGB Music and Film Festival taking over NYC from October 9-13th.

Before the heavy rains set in Saturday at the Newport Folk Festival, My Morning Jacket and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes played “It Makes No Difference”, a tribute to Levon Helm of The Band, who died in April. Jim James performed the tune with Helm at the Folk Fest in 2010 before his death. This incredible tribute starts at 12:43.

I am not one for Christmas songs, but this new My Morning Jacket cut featuring the Head and the Heart seems worth sharing. “When The Bells Start Ringing” is taken from their brand new holiday iTunes session release, which you can grab here. (So looking forward to seeing MMJ and Band of Horses next week!)
