Eddie Vedder & Lukas Nelson + Promise Of The Real Cover Neil Young's "Throw Your Hatred Down": OHANA FESTIVAL (Sept 29, 2019)



Eddie Vedder joined Lukas Nelson + Promise Of The Real to cover Neil Young's "Throw Your Hatred Down" at the fourth annual Ohana Festival, at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, California on Sept 29, 2019.

Neil Young's “Rockin’ In The Free World” closed out the festival with most acts joining including The Strokes, Red Hot Chili Peppers and others.

From interview with Neil Young on "Mirror Ball world premier with Dave Marsh", August 1995:
Dave Marsh: But one of the clearest and most direct statements on the record is the next thing we're going to hear which is Throw You Hatred Down, which I understand was originally called Throw Your Weapons down.

Neil Young: Yeah, I sometimes mess around with titles for a while and i couldn't figure out which one to use, so I thought I'd just wait until I sang it and see which one I sang first. Because when you're playing, some words work better than others and it's never done and until it's over, you know, it's never finished. And even then, it's not finished because I keep changing it after that anyway.

Dave Marsh: Yeah, well, Throw Your Hatred Down talks about people being divided by their dreams and I think that goes back to the kind of 60s versus 90s versus 70s and 80s or the 60s and the 90s versus the 70s, you know, connecting up to the 70s and 80s sensibility. Am I right about that?

Neil Young: Well, I was thinking about the kids in the schoolyard who are fighting - like just the different ways to go and they're started right there. Just how ... where does it start ... where do we start the conflict? You know, where does it begin? It must begin at birth or something, because conflict is always there. It seems part of our nature, as sad as it sounds. I mean it must just be there ... and I just, you know ... was drifting around in my head trying ... I just had all these images of this ... conflict and people planning ways to overcome evil and evil planning ways to encroach on good.

More on Mirror Ball album reviews, etc.

"Meanwhile in the underworld
The weaknesses are seen
By peasants and presidents
Who plan the counter-scheme
Children in the schoolyard
Finish choosing teams
Divided by their dreams
While a TV screams

Throw your weapons down
Throw your weapons down"

UPDATE: Neil says on NYA that the Neil Young with Pearl Jam concert in Dublin, August 1995 with "Throw Your Hatred Down", has been located. The plan is to screen in Hearse Theater at a future date.

Our twin sons were three years old when I purchased Mirror Ball. “I’m the Ocean” is off all the charts. It is simply incredible. While walking to work, in a good or bad mood, those last lines come to mind, “I was too tired to see the news when I got home..,.” Jesus what a hard labor

I agree Abner, "I'm the Ocean" is one of Neil's great underappreciated works. There is so much there. "I'm a cutlass supreme in the wrong lane trying to turn against the flow." only Mr. Young could write a line like that. I'm not a huge fan of "Throw your hatred down" it's ok, but always seemed a little flat...even forced to me especially on the record. Mirrorball as a whole was so raw and full of life, I love "fallen angel". It's a little gem perfect as what it is. I'd love to see him play more from this album. I saw "Song X" on a playlist Thrasher put up. This album is one of my favorites. One of those that seem to get better everytime you pull it out. -I'm a drug that makes you dream.

Sancho, under appreciated- totally agree. I love Truth Be Known. And Song X.

Completely off topic but a few weeks ago someone asked what time movies change at the Hearse Theater and I just got kicked of Massey Hall & asked to log back in. After doing that Massey Hall was gone & Fuel Line was showing so today at least the movies changed at 10:00 Eastern / 9:00 Central / 8:00 Mountain / 7:00 Pacific / 2:00 GMT

Wish I could get to one ohana show before I die. What a beautiful way to close out summer before the kids really have to dig there heels in. How fantastic. I always live for septembers end I feel it is the closing of summer. Much love to Ed Vedder. Debbie from boston

tons of irony hearing Eddie sing about throwing hatred down...he is without a doubt one of the most hate-filled entertainers out there...the venom that he & his wife, Jill spew towards conservatives & anyone who isn't a leftist is nauseating...and I say that as someone who used to follow Pearl Jam around the country in the early/mid-90's

then I grew up...

"The quality of emptiness that we are referring to was never born; likewise, it cannot die. This essential nature of our lives is unborn--like space itself. Space provides no place to abide, no foothold in which to secure our steps. In skylike emptiness, we cannot be stuck. Yet here we are, alive in this wondrous world of appearances, which can always benefit from wise discernment. With particularity as fine as flour, we discriminate between actions that intend to relieve suffering for ourselves and others and those that intend to cause harm."

@ Mr Henry - some weighty words from The Monk.

yes, disCERNment -- as always -- is key. Interestingly, we find the analogy of "particularity as fine as flour" to resonate here @ TW, ergo sifting wheat/chaff.

much as Ghosteen resonates...
