Pearl Jam Covers Neil Young With St. Vincent, Carrie Brownstein

St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, is a little bit of everywhere these days. She’s announcing new European tours, sporting new hairdos that fall in the gray-but-somehow-still-cool category, and hopping on stage with Pearl Jam and Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, Sleater-Kinney) to cover Neil Young’s “Rocking in the Free World.”

The jam session happened at Pearl Jam’s Friday show in Dallas, with Brownstein on guitar and Clark taking vocal duty, and you can watch it below:

 

That’s a lot of cool people on one stage, covering a cool song by a different, older cool person. Considering that they’re all in Dallas, where the coolest president was killed, the cool factor is absolutely through the roof. (Look, I tried to say something nice about Dallas, and I failed. Sorry.)

Pearl Jam’s North American tour continues on the west coast this week.
