This past weekend Neil Young’s 24th annual Bridge School Benefit went down in Mountain View, California. The big story was of course Buffalo Springfield reuniting at last. Though some members looked a little the worse for wear, hearing “Mr. Soul” and “For What It’s Worth” performed by the original members (the ones still alive, at least) must have been a treat.

Pearl Jam performed both nights, as they have six times before. Counting his solo appearances, this marks Eddie Vedder’s ninth appearance at the Benefit. Though both nights saw Neil Young join the band for Le Noise track “Walk with Me,” Night 1 fans got a special treat: a cover of Patti Smith’s “Dancing Barefoot.” A relatively straightforward rendition turns into a full-band acoustic before Vedder lets loose his grumbly scream.

Download Pearl Jam’s “Dancing Barefoot” below. Also, check out a hard-rocking cover they did in 2004 of Smith’s “People Have the Power.”
