The roots-rock six-piece, which broke up last November after its annual Thanksgiving Eve headlining show at Rams Head Live, will reunite for one night only on Saturday at the Maryland Science Center (601 Light St.). Tickets, available here ($30 for 18+, $40 for 21+), are on sale now.
Proceeds from the reunion show will go toward Believe in Music, a non-profit organization aiming to "uplift underprivileged Baltimore City students academically, culturally and spiritually" through music education, according to a press release. Pairing with Living Classrooms, another non-profit, Believe in Music will hold classes on how to write, perform and record music, while also teaching students about music's role in society and the arts.
The Bridge will play two full sets on Saturday. Caleb Stine, DJ Who and Cirque Oya will also perform. Other DJs will perform sets on the rooftop.
One of the city's most popular bands in recent years, the Bridge disbanded due to financial struggles, not because of inner-band turmoil or lack of passion for the music. It was a band that had simply grown tired of struggling on the road.
"We're still best friends, brothers," lead singer Cris Jacobs told me last fall. "It's the reality of it. We're not 23 anymore; we're 33. Being on the road, not making money, being away from our families -- it's taxing after a while."
