Haim Sleepily Covered the Beach Boys’ ‘Surfer Girl’ With Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste

Thursday night, Haim put on a charity concert in Los Angeles called Sam Jam, celebrating the life of their late friend Sammi Kane Kraft. A number of special performances took place throughout the night, including a cover of the Beach Boys’ “Surfer Girl” featuring Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste on lead vocals. The cover mostly seemed to match the original’s dazed headspace, with the sisters pushing it even further into the placid and sleepy realm it hints at.

Haim also brought out Jenny Lewis at one point in the show and she decided to debut a new song called “Girl on Girl” with the band backing her. You can watch the Beach Boys’ cover up above and the Lewis track below. All proceeds from the night went to the Our House center for grief support.
