It looks like I’ll soon be doing a PJ podcast with a friend and it’s likely the podcast will be hosted here.
Right now we need suggestions for a name. Here are a few ideas we’ve been kicking around:
A Thousand Points of Light
The boxer or the bag
Nothing as it seems
The Strangest Tribe
Foxy Mop (or Foxymophandlemama)
Please chime in with any thoughts or suggestions. Also, let me know if you would actually listen to a Pearl Jam podcast that features me and a buddy discussing the good, bad and ugly aspects of Pearl Jam fandom.
The Hitler meme applied to Pearl Jam’s European ticketing problem.
The massive Shadow banner at the Tractor Tavern hanging for Shadow’s show. It had to be at least 15x30.
Mike McCready’s old band Shadow, now called Shadow 86, is playing a benefit at the Tractor on Dec. 27. The band also features the Friel brothers and Danny Newcombe. The show will benefit Carbon Roots International. Shadow 86 will be supported by “TBA/special surprise guest.”
I found these old school bootlegs at Easy Street Queen Anne tonight. I passed on purchasing all three but don’t think I didn’t give heavy consideration to adding them to my collection of Pearl Jam recordings. The record on the left, titled Five Alive, cost $15. It is live recordings from the band’s ‘93 and ‘94 tours. The tracklist wasn’t anything all too impressive.
The middle record, In Rock We Trust, cost $20 and I almost bought it just based on its cover alone. I love that pic of Stone and Jeff. The record is a boot of both of the band’s Bridge School shows from 1994. It includes “Bee Girl” and “Walking the Cow,” which is a Daniel Johnston cover. It also has ”Footsteps” and “Wash,” two of my favorite Pearl Jam songs.
The record on the right, New Songs, also cost $20 and I had a tough time passing it up. It’s a compiltion of live recordings of songs that were yet to be released when the bootleg was produced which was some time in 1993-ish. The main lure was “Fuck Me In The Brain,” a song that I didn’t know exisited until tonight. Turns out it’s a pretty rare track. I passed on the purchase because I couldn’t justify $20 for one song, especially when it’s available to watch on YouTube for free.
