As previously reported, Elliott Smith was commemorated last night with a tribute concert at Brooklyn’s Glasslands, where Cat Power, Zachary Cole Smith (DIIV), Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf, and many more paid their respects with an assortment of covers.
Now, fan-footage has surfaced, specifically two performances by the dynamic duo of Ferreira and Smith, who covered “A Distorted Reality Is Now A Necessity To Be Free” and “Little One”. As Smith points out, the night was far more rewarding than a previous Elliott tribute he attended, thanks to the exclusion of Tenacious D.
Update: Ferreira also teamed with Cat Power for a cover of “Pretty (Ugly Before)”.
Yesterday, we also celebrated Elliott’s life and music with a list of his 10 best songs.
