  Ed Vedder. Surviving Beatles.  History. Jess was there… here is what she posted to TFT’s Twitter page about the experience…

  • Many in McCartney or PJ gear. Yay: a poster. Boo: its 100 bucks!
  • 3 vid cameras embedded in the orchestra, hopes for dvd now raised.
  • Lol. Moby in a back flag T-Shirt singing Play tunes w/ Bette LaVette.
  • Sheryl Crow and Ben Harper on George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord”. Things are getting meta.
  • [at apx 8.35 pm] EV is on playin guaranteed in a check flannel shirt. Rock.
  • (EV) Talking bout the 36hr midnight shift stuff and watching (legendary David Lynch film) Eraserhead
  • “Rise” on mandolin
  • “Arc”! Wtf!
  • (at apx 8:55 p.m.) “Indifference” with Ben Harper. Good times.
  • Hell yes: EV and Ben duet on (Bowie/Queen collaboration) “Under Pressure”. Ed does the Bowie, Ben does Freddie
  • Ed and Ben “Under Pressure” was the first standing ovation of the night
  • I highly suspect Ed has on a Devo shirt under that flannel
  • Donovan and Jim James from My Morning Jacket and Ben Harper: odd.
  • Wait, Howard Stern is monologing about meditating? Getting weird.
  • Okay, now Ed is dueting with freakin Ringo on “It Don’t Come Easy”
  • Too funny; EV on the “bop shoo wops” as Ringo hits drums and sings “Boys”
  • We all live in a “Yellow Submarine” with Ringo Sheryl Crow Ben Harper – and young Eddie Vedder apparently
  • McCartney – “Drive My Car”
  • Macca is up here playing “Can’t Buy Me Love” while a downtwn theater screens “Hard Days Night”. What year is it?
  • McCartney and Ringo did “With A Little Help From My Friends”. Thrilled.
  • Ed et al on stage with Beatles right now. Life is good.
  • After finale of “I Saw Her Standing There” with all guests, EV and Jim James wink, Ed smashes maracas and bearhugs McCartney
