Eels To Play Bridge Show

Eels drummer Butch Norton confirmed this week that the band will join R.E.M., and possibly Canada's Barenaked Ladies, at this year's Bridge School Benefit shows. The 11th-annual, all-acoustic, all-star shows, scheduled to take place on Oct. 17-18 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif., benefit a school founded in 1986 by host Neil Young and his wife for children with severe physical and speech impairments.
