This week, Pearl Jam and Lin-Manuel Miranda will take part in an upcoming fundraiser ahead of the upcoming Georgia Senate runoff election. To promote the virtual event, the Hamilton creator put his own spin on the grunge icons.

On his Twitter, Miranda shared a cover of PJ’s “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town,” which he dubs “Elderly Composer Behind the Keyboard in a Messy Office.”

“I’m so sorry @PearlJam, you play it so much better, see you Wednesday night,” Miranda tweeted, alongside the hashtag #PearlJamuelMiranda.

The fundraiser, which aims specifically to engage voters in the Georgia Latino community, airs this Wednesday, December 16, at 8:30 p.m. ET via the streaming site Looped. For more info, visit
