Last Wednesday night, Mike Watt
wrapped up his show in Seattle with a menagerie of rock legends, providing a historic collaboration for their beloved home city. Luckily, there have been no reports of head explosions at the show from Seattle-patriots witnessing the surprise addition of Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, and Pat Smear joining Watt on stage. This supergroup had actually all graced the same stage sixteen years ago at Philedelphia's Trocadero Theatre in 1995 (check out this article
on the performance, which ironically was posted about sixteen years ago). To commemorate the reunion, the gaggle of rock gods struck up with "Big Train", which comes from Watt's 1995 album Ball-Hog or Tugboat
, followed by a blissfully prolonged segway into the Stooges' "Fun House". Watch the video below to witness Mike Watt bring the pride of Seattle right in front of its city. Who knows, maybe next time he'll be joined by San Fran's finest in the form of Third Eye Blind and Counting Crows. Who says you can't bring back the 90s twice in one week?
Disclaimer: That San Fransisco collaboration only exists in my dreams. Sorry, guys.
