Bob Weir’s Sweetwater Music Hall Hosts Haiti Benefit

Bob Weir’s Sweetwater Music Hall hosted a benefit on Saturday that centered around the premiere of Don Hardy’s new documentary Fingerprints, which documents the efforts of Music Heals International.

Weir took the stage to perform with a slew of known collaborators, including RatDog bandmates Robin Sylvester and Jay Lane along with special guests Dan Lebowitx, James Nash and Randy Emata.

The ensemble took the time to pay homage to the late Tom Petty with “Breakdown” during their set along with a host of Dead favorites like “Bird Song” and “West L.A. Fadeaway” as well as another cover of Daniel Lanois’ “The Maker,” which Weir has played recently with My Morning Jacket’s Jim James.

Watch the Petty tribute above.
