Eddie Vedder made the most of his weekend in the Bay Area by doing an impromptu performance Friday (October 19) at “A Night of Discovery & Healing for EB,” a fundraiser held at San Jose, California’s Children’s Discovery Museum benefiting Heal EB. The charity raises awareness of a disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa.  Eddie  – who donated a number of cool items to an auction you can bid on here — and his wife Jill met with a number of kids with EB who attended (the boy in the photos is named Garrett) during the evening and attendees got to witness Ed joining event band Big Daddy Sunshine for three songs: covers of The Beatles’ “Come Together,” Tom Petty’s “Running Down a Dream,” and Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World.” You can check him out rocking with Big Daddy Sunshine at the event in the photo above.

As many fans already know, Eddie was also in the Bay Area on Saturday (October 20) when he popped up at Neil Young’s Benefit to do a couple of songs (“Last Kiss” and “Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town”) and Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers tweeted cool photos with Ed and his daughter.
