Beck and Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl gave some lucky donors a once-in-a-lifetime show on Saturday night (Sept. 29) at the Swing Left political fundraiser in Silver Lake, California. The gig in support of Ohio Congressional candidate Aftab Pureval included an all-star jam with Grohl on drums and Beck at the mic for a run through the singer’s hit “Where It’s At,” which also featured producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia) on keyboards and backing vocals from Inara George of The Bird and the Bee.
Pureval is currently a Clerk of Courts in Hamilton County, Ohio, who is running an insurgent campaign against long-time congressman Republican Steve Chabot.
