Vedder turned out this past weekend for a star-studded musical evening in Hollywood for Hullabaloo 2007, a fete arranged by Flea of the RHCP to benefit his Silverlake Music Conservatory which helps to provide music lessons for underprivileged kids. Some absolutely fantastic videos of the night have turned up here (thanks for the tip, Bill). Vedder’s set also included Driftin’, I Am Mine (!!), the new one No More War, and Betterman & Corduroy with Flea and Co.

I love how Flea goes pogoing past in the background like that little hyperactive kid in your third grade class that the teacher could never get to sit down. Plus, it’s great to see Jack Irons wail again. I think he’s my favored drummer in the Pearl Jam pantheon.
