Pearl Jam & Sleater-Kinney, Portland 11/29/13

Pearl Jam, who brought Carrie Brownstein onstage in Dallas earlier this month, did one better last night by reuniting the Portlandia star’s former band Sleater-Kinney for the first time in seven years. Pearl Jam ended their show at Portland’s Moda Center with a cover of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World” that featured hometown heroes Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss (along with ex-R.E.M.ers Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey). Check out the Instagram evidence above and watch footage below.

As a bonus, here are Pearl Jam and Sleater-Kinney playing “Rockin’ In The Free World” on their 2003 tour:

  1. I just wet myself.

  2. Medium cool.

  3. SK-new lp and tour 2014 please!

  4. That looks like a lot of fucking fun!

  5. Every new project from Janet Weiss or Mary Timony or new Portlandia season or S-K reunion sighting only makes me come to accept that Wild Flag might end up being a one-and-done project. The last show they had scheduled was an appearance at two FYF Fests ago, which they cancelled for scheduling reasons (Not saying that I’d prefer Wild Flag over S-K, but I thought we’d have a sophomore effort from them by now.)
