Editor's Note: First Notes is a weekly update of recent happenings in the world of music.

Eddie Vedder performed a cover of John Lennon's "Imagine" for the first time ever. It's just one more note in the ongoing anti-war rhetoric from the Pearl Jam frontman recently. Last week, he posted an anti-war blog on the band's website.
