Every now and then — OK, probably every day, somewhere or another — Los Angeles is host to an eye-popping musical event. Everybody lives there, after all, and on Saturday evening the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Eddie Vedder teamed up for a truly special hour of music, benefiting the Silverlake Conservatory of Music.
it’s an annual event put on by RHCP bassist Flea and his colleagues, and this year’s show was hosted by Marc Maron, The music component of the evening, however, was a real treat for those in attendance, as the Chili Peppers played a number of their hits — even digging up the Californication album cut “Purple Stain” for the first time since 2004 — before Vedder closed out the night.
The Pearl Jam front man’s set featured some covers, from Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers” to various Pearl Jam clasics, before the whole ngiht was capped with a rendition of Prince’s “Purple Rain” and Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.”
Thanks to a diligent RHCP fan site, you can watch a video of the whole concert below. Take note of Chili Peppers front Anthony Kiedis and his stylish suit!
