ACL 2009 Day Three: Pearl Jam With Special Guests Ben Harper and Perry Farrell

Pearl Jam closed out this year's ACL with aplomb, the audience stretching nearly the entire length of Zilker Park to see Eddie Vedder and the seminal band while nostalgically recalling large portions of the 1990s as songs like "Daughter" and "Evenflow" washed over the crowd.

Halfway through the concert, Vedder brought Ben Harper -- who had earlier played to a packed crowd on the AMD Stage at 6 p.m. -- on stage for a rendition of "Alive." Pearl Jam further thrilled the audience by delivering an encore with none other than Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction, as they sang Jane's "Mountain Song" to a raucous and riotously happy crowd.
