Friday Bonus Music (May 8, 2009)

In the comments to Friday Chill Music below, John wrote the following in response to the version of Indifference from Bridge School:

"This version of indifference rocks. When you considering the timing of this bridge school show (less than 2 months after 9/11) there was so much energy and emotion with everyone (pearl jams set was ridiculously intense). But, this particular moment in the show captures the emotion swirling around not just with the audience, but with the artists. I think everyone was literally asking themselves "how much difference does it make?"  And Ben Harper's yelp on, "i'll swallow poison until i grow immune." wow." -- John Hamilton
I remember this show vividly and the same feeling John references. I was nervous to be going to a large concert in the aftermath of 9/11 and everyone in the crowd needed an emotional release. The song before Indifference was the high point for me. It was a new song called I Am Mine, that I think Eddie wrote after 9/11. It was really powerful and brought me up to a 9 on the sensitivity scale. Here it is, enjoy.
