My Morning Jacket at Bridge School Benefit

This past weekend, Neil Young held his two annual all-star Bridge School Benefit shows in Mountain View, California. And before the second of those shows last night, we learned that Lou Reed had died. Over the years, My Morning Jacket, who played the Bridge School shows, have covered the Velvet Underground’s space-folk hymn “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” many times. And last night, they did a nearly 10-minute version of the song, with plenty of the other musicians on the bill helping out. Young, Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis, and others joined in. Watch a fan-made video below.

  1. This was an amazing moment. A lot of people were hearing the news of Lou Reed’s death for the first time from the My Morning Jacket guy, and there was an audible gasp from the crowd. It was a very poignant tribute. It was definitely the main highlight besides Tom Waits’ performance. (Queens of the Stone Age had a great set too. Very slinky and seductive. Josh Homme is really growing into his crooner persona)
