Last night (October 22) a clean-shaven Robin Pecknold performed Pearl Jam’s “Corduroy” for the second night of Pearl Jam Week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
For the Fleet Foxes frontman’s first late night appearance in two years, he picked up an electric guitar and channeled Eddie Vedder to take on the Vitalogy track. (Watch below.)
With a little help from Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen, the singer stepped away from his folky roots to show his alt rock side. The two guys even got a chance to have their own shredding contest near the end.
Pearl Jam Week kicked off yesterday with a performance of PJ’s “Footsteps” from Chris Cornell and The Avett Brothers. And continues tonight with a jam session from Dierks Bentley, Pearl Jam’s guitarist Mike McCready and The Roots
Tomorrow and Friday night Pearl Jam will hit the stage to celebrate the release of their latest album, Lightning Bolt.
