Concert: Bridge School 2003

I was wiser this year and didn't go at the very start, though I probably should have delayed even a bit longer. I didn't really pay attention to Incubus or the Indigo Girls (we missed the bands before them), as I was really just waiting for the final three acts (Pearl Jam, Willie Nelson, CSNY).

Willie Nelson covered a couple of Hank Williams' songs, played a couple with Neil Young, and did his typical fare (at least from the last time I saw him). He was good, though I wish he did some more high-energy songs. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, given their varied collaborations, did some CSNY (Teach Your Children, Our House), Buffalo Springfield (For What It's Worth), and Stills-Young (Long May You Run).

Pearl Jam did a much better set than I saw them do two years ago. They stuck with older material and covers (Dylan, Beatles, Victoria Williams). Eddie Vedder's voice was sounding a bit restrained, but the performances were tight. They had an organ player playing for the first half the set that was actually quite good and made the performances a bit more distinct.

Set list (only first and last songs are in correct order)
You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
Elderly Woman
Crazy Mary (with a great organ solo)
Old Dick Cheney Had a Plan (to the tune of Old Macdonald)*
Master of War
Long Road (with Neil Young)

* Lyrics
(something like this)
Old Dick Cheney Had a Plan, e-i-e-i-o
And in this plan he had a war, e-i-e-i-o
With a Bush Bush here, and Bush Bush there,
Here a Bush, Rumsfeld Bush....Rice Bush
