Sleater-Kinney, Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey Cover Neil Young with Pearl Jam
Pearl Jam got some help from a big group of friends when they closed out their show at the Moda Center in Portland, OR last night. The band was joined by all of Sleater-Kinney, R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and The Young Fresh Fellows and The Minus 5 frontman Scott McCaughey for the last song of the night—a cover of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.” It was the second time that Sleater-Kinney guitarist (and Portlandia star) Carrie Brownstein had sat in with the band this tour.
In addition to the sit ins, the concert also featured the first “You Are” of the current tour. The song, which appears on the band’s 2002 album Riot Act, is one the first Pearl Jam tracks written by drummer Matt Cameron. The 34-song show also included renditions of Pink Floyd’s “Interstellar Overdrive” and “Mother,” as well as a take on The Velvet Underground’s “After Hours.”
Pearl Jam will continue their tour tonight with a performance at the Spokane Arena in Spokane, WA.
