On Saturday (November 2), Eddie Vedder helped Red Hot Chili Peppers raise money for Silverlake Conservatory of Music — a nonprofit music school co-founded by RHCP bassist Flea — by performing during the organization's annual fundraising concert. Both artists played short sets, the SoCal rockers played an eclectic eight-song set mixed with hits and deep cuts, and the Pearl Jam frontman played a seven-song set of acoustic songs from his band's catalog, along with a few covers. At the end of the night, the rock icons joined forces to cover Prince's "Purple Rain" and Jimi Hendrix's rendition of "All Along The Watchtower."

Someone in attendance recorded the whole performance. Watch the covers around the 45-minute mark, and check out the set lists below.
