Watch Brandi Carlile and Dave Grohl busk on the streets of Seattle

Brandi Carlile got her start by busking on the streets of her hometown of Seattle, and this past Saturday she took a nostalgic trip to Pike Place Market to play an impromptu set, bringing along fellow Seattle native Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters. The two musicians were accompanied by Carlile’s bandmates Phil and Tim Hanseroff, a.k.a “the twins,” and part of their set was streamed live on Carlile’s Facebook page, while onlookers captured their own video.

As crowds gathered outside the famous market to watch the unannounced set, Carlile and Grohl played a rendition of The Beatles’ “Let It Be,” plus some of their own songs, including the Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These.” Carlile wrote later on Instagram that the 15-minute set was “one of the most surreal moments of my life.” Watch clips of the performance below.
