Fans who attended Pearl Jam’s concert in Dallas last night were treated to a pair of special guests and one enormous cover. As Stereogum points out, St. Vincent’s Annie Clark and Carrie Brownstein joined the band on stage to cover Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World”. Annie, especially, seemed to have the time of her life.
If you’re wondering the connection, Brownstein is a longtime friend of Pearl Jam. Eddie Vedder has made several cameos on her show Portlandia, and just recently Brownstein interviewed the band in promo for their new album, Lightning Bolt. Not sure Eddie knew who Annie Clark was prior to last night, but he surely does now.
