Ed Vedder (didn’t play – see note) a small surprise solo set last night at The Crocodile Cafe in Seattle. I ate breakfast there the last time I was in Seattle (mostly I was being a musical stalker, but in my defense I was also hungry and they make really good omelettes).
Some interesting cover choices, especially the Nick Cave one (which they’ve not previously done that I am aware of) and the awesome “Don’t Wanna Grow Up.” I can’t wait to hear this boot –surely someone was taping it?
AMENDED: Someone with too much time on their hands seems to have made up this appearance, but I am leaving up the good mp3s and we can all close our eyes and pretend it happened anyway.
Happy Birthday (to guitarist Mike McCready’s new baby girl)
I Don’t Wanna Grow Up (Tom Waits/Ramones cover)
Hide Your Love Away (Beatles cover)
cover/improv/new song? (tag: Modern Girl/Sleater-Kinney)
Where The Wild Roses Grow (Nick Cave cover, duet with unknown female singer)
