Eddie Vedder Makes Music with Dave Matthews
Saturday night, Dave Matthews and Eddie Vedder shared the stage in their hometown of Seattle, performing at The Showbox. A wedding reception for Real Networks Chair and Chief Executive Officer Rob Glaser, the intimate gig turned into something of a power jam, featuring several of Glaser’s longtime friends. The private show opened with an hour-long performance by Matthews and collaborator Tim Reynolds, featuring a selection of the guitarists’ DMB material. Later that night, Matthews revived his Dave and Friends side project for a two-hour set consisting of his solo material and a wide range of covers. According to reports, this streamlined version of Dave and Friends did not feature Trey Anastasio, who toured with the collective last winter. Vedder joined the group for five songs, including Neil Young’s ‘Harvest Moon’ and ‘Rockin’ in the Free World,’ as well as Sly and the Family Stone’s ‘Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin).’ The group also dedicated a version of ‘Happy Birthday’ to Glaser’s wife. Vedder and Matthews recently collaborated in Washington, D.C. on the closing night of the traveling Vote for Change tour.
