#Cubs benefit concert raises $400,000

Friday night’s Hot Stove Cool Music concert for Theo Epstein’s Foundation To Be Named Later raised more than $400,000, and featured a surprise performance by Pearl Jam front-man Eddie Vedder. Vedder took the stage at The Metro in Wrigleyville, joining an all-star roster of Chicago and Boston musicians who stepped up to the plate for Chicago-area youth. This was the fifth Chicago FTBNL benefit concert.

Vedder joined Epstein, Hall of Fame baseball writer Peter Gammons, Cubs broadcaster Len Kasper and an all-star lineup featuring Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Liz Phair, Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, Latin Grammy nominated jazz musician/former New York Yankee Bernie Williams, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, and Avid Dancer.
