Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell joined Pearl Jam for a Temple Of The Dog reunion performance Saturday on the first day of the 28th Annual Bridge School Benefit concerts in California.

The pairing delivered “Hunger Strike” from the 1991 project conceived by Cornell as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of Seattle bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone.

The event marked just their fourth performance since 1991 and their first since reuniting during Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary shows at Alpine Valley in 2011 – watch video of that set here.

The annual acoustic-based shows raise 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.
