Eddie Vedder Shaves Fan's Dreadlocks

On Saturday night, a Pearl Jam fan in Spokane held up a sign promising to let the band shave his dreadlocked head if they’d perform his request, “Brain Of J.” They brought him onstage to headbang with his formidable dreads one last time to the Yield opener, then Eddie Vedder busted out clippers for a lengthy shearing session while his bandmates played 12-bar blues. It’s silly, fun, and worth watching, so do that below.
