A Bay Area teen got the gig of a lifetime, helping out Pearl Jam.

18-year-old Kai Neukermans got to play drums for the band at their show in Oakland on Friday.

This probably came easy for Nuekermans: he is in a band called The Alive and actually knows Eddie Vedder’s daughter, who helped him get the gig.

Pearl Jam has been getting fill-ins to help out as drummer Matt Cameron recovers after testing positive for Covid-19.

What band would you like to play for if given a chance? Will you be seeing Pearl Jam on tour?
