Flea performs with The Pixies at a marathon benefit concert.

Pixies front man Black Francis wielded his weighty Rolodex and called on an all-star cast to perform at a marathon benefit concert last night at Los Angeles club the Echoplex. The five-and-a-half-hour extravaganza featured sets by Tenacious D, OK Go, members of the Pixies, Grand Duchy, Flea, David J and Kevin Haskins of Love and Rockets and 'Weird' Al Yankovic, to name a few. All of the artists donated their time and talents to help Winston Bertrand, a 10-month-old boy born with severe lymphatic malformations that require extensive medical treatment.

...Capping off the night was Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, who played bass on Pixies classics 'Vamos' and 'Where Is My Mind.'

"I've never played with so many different people in one night," Francis gushed after the show. "There were a lot of really magical moments!"
