Soundgarden were among the featured performers Saturday on the first day of the 28th Annual Bridge School Benefit concerts in California.

The Seattle band unplugged for a 5-song set at the annual acoustic-based show that raises funds for the Bridge School, a facility that develops and uses advanced technologies to aid in the instruction of children with disabilities.

Neil Young’s former wife, Pegi, co-founded The Bridge School in 1986 with Jim Forderer and help from Dr. Marilyn Buzolich. The first benefit concert, in 1986, raised the money necessary to start the school, which opened in ’87.

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell also joined Pearl Jam for a Temple Of The Dog reunion on Saturday – watch the performance of “Hunger Strike” here.

Also appearing at the Bridge School weekend shows are Neil Young, Florence + The Machine, Tom Jones, Norah Jones, Band Of Horses and additional guests.
