Video: ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic sings ‘I Bleed’ with 3/4ths of Pixies at Winston Calling benefit

Last night in Los Angeles,  Black Francis hosted a benefit concert called Winston Calling that featured appearances by most of the Pixies Kim Deal was absent, so Kim Shattuck of The Muffs and Flea filled in on bass — as well as Love and Rockets’ David J, Michael Penn, Tenacious D, OK Go, She Wants Revenge and, of all people, “Weird Al” Yankovic, who handled lead vocals on the twisted Doolittle rocker “I Bleed” (see that video above, and much more after the jump).

The concert was organized by Violet Clark, Frank Black’s wife and partner in Grand Duchy, which also performed. The event, which continues tonight with a comedy show, raised money for the parents of 8 1/2-month-old Winston Bertrand, who was born with two very rare and life-threatening conditions, lymphatic and venous malformations.
