One of the most beloved musical acts in the Baltimore area, The Bridge, called it quits last year and played one last epic farewell run at their home venue, The 8x10. There every step of the way to chronicle the bittersweet ending was photographer Jordan August, who has recently released a 120-page book featuring reviews and setlists from each of the final four shows and over 200 magnificent color photos.
"I can't explain how grateful I am to be able to share something like this with everyone," Jordan said. "For a lot of us, The Bridge was more than just a local band - they were a way of life, a community of friends and family who all live and die for live music."
On sale now via Blurb.com, this book takes you the reader on an emotional roller coaster and is a must-have for the hardcore Bridge fan or anyone who's ever been inspired or affected by live music. Read Jordan and staff writer Brandon Chiat's coverage of the the last show of the run to get a taste of just how special it was.
The Bridge recently announced they would come out of retirement for All Good Music Festival in Thornville, OH this July 19 to 22. For more information on All Good and all your favorite summer festivals, visit our 2012 Festival Guide.
