Seattle’s Fleet Foxes have been chosen to play the 2009 Bridge School Benefit on Oct 24th and 25th. Each year Neil Young and his wife Pegi organize a stellar show at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA with all proceeds going to the Bridge School. This years performers include Monsters of Folk, Chris Martin of Coldplay, No Doubt and Adam Sandler just to name a few. I am holding out hope for an all star rendition of the Hanukkah song. Make it happen Sandler.You can learn more about the show here.
In other Fleet Foxes news the dudes will be honored along with Quincy Jones and KEXP at the 2009 Seattle City of Music Awards at the Showbox on Oct. 14th. This event is open to the public and you can pick up tickets at Easy St, Everyday Music, Silver Platters and Sonic Boom.
