Following Lou Reed's passing over the weekend, many artists paid tribute to the songwriting great by posting messages online. As for My Morning Jacket, Neil Young, Elvis Costello and Jenny Lewis, they honoured Reed with a collaborative performance at the Bridge School Benefit Concert on Sunday (October 27) at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA.

Following a brief introduction by MMJ frontman Jim James, the collective of artists performed the Velvet Underground's classic Loaded track "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'." Their version is faithful to the melancholic sprawl of the beautiful original.

Watch fan footage of the performance below.
