2005-03-18 Seattle, WA

Concert to benefit and celebrate the 25th anniversary of Stone Gossard's Alma Mater (Class of 1984), The Northwest School. Ed and Boom start things out with an homage to the students, The Kids Are Alright; the slightly extended ending features Ed telling the crowd "the kids are alright ... your kids are alright ... my kid is alright ...". Slower jazzy intro to Porch featured, as well as a new tribal flavor to Matt's drumming on the breakdown of Save You. Jeff plays a "regular" bass instead of the standup on a tag-free Daughter. This show featured the first public performance of new song "Crapshoot." Slower jazzy intro to Porch featured.

Set: The Kids Are Alright (Ed and Boom), Porch, Save You, Given To Fly, 1/2 Full, Crapshoot (new song), Daughter, Happy Birthday (to Jeff Ament and Bill Frisell), Crazy Mary (w/ Bill Frisell on guitar)

Encore: Parting Ways (w/ Northwest School student Eli Weinberger on cello), All Along The Watchtower (w/ensemble)
