The Home Shows Candy!

Would you like a sweet way to support Pearl Jam's effort to fight homelessness?  How about a Theo Chocolates candy bar?  They're organic, fair-trade, kosher, vegan, and soy and dairy free.  All the good stuff.  Pick one up on their website for $5 a piece and the proceeds go to the Vitalogy Foundation.

Thanks to Travis at GuerrillaCandy, who comprised a full list of all the stuff you can buy or do to support Pearl Jam's "The Home Shows" initiative.

Eddie Vedder to Play Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg

Pearl Jam has never played on the continent of Africa, but they'll get close this December when Eddie joins Beyoncé and Jay-Z for the Manela 100: Global Citizen Festival on December 2nd at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This free-ticketed event will celebrate the centenary year of Nelson Mandela, honoring his legacy in the fight to end extreme poverty.

"It is such an honor to be given the chance to head to South Africa to celebrate Nelson Mandela's incomparable legacy. He showed an entire generation what it means to be a leader and make a difference for the world's poor. I'm so grateful that this event will serve as a reminder of his great work and inspire us all to carry on in his name," said Eddie.

Visit Global Citizen to view the full lineup and learn how to earn free tickets to the festival.

... And Now, Beer!

If you were excited about the introduction of "The Home Shows" Brown Sugar Bourbon, maybe you'll also be happy that Seattle breweries, Fremont Brewing and Georgetown Brewing, are joining forces to create "The Home Shows" Seattle Pale Ale, donating $2 from every six-pack to Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation.
According to Matt Edwards, the Research and Development Brewer at Georgetown Brewing, Home Shows Seattle Pale Ales is “an easy drinking pale that skips out on the bitterness while boasting aromas and flavors of fresh mandarin orange, ripened pineapple and honeydew melon.”
Look for the beer in Seattle starting July 20th. No word on distribution outside of Washington state.

Pearl Jam's Brown Sugar Bourbon

Heritage Distilling Company in Washington has partnered with Pearl Jam to make a "The Home Shows" themed brown sugar bourbon.  This, of course, is not Pearl Jam's first foray into alcoholic beverages.  Fans of Vitalogy may have partaken in some whiskey, and fans of PJ20 had some of the best Pearl Jam beer on Earth.
Heritage Distilling Company is proud to have inked a partnership with Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation to produce a special edition Home Shows themed BSB-Brown Sugar Bourbon. A portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold will go to the Vitalogy Foundation’s Home Shows program, to fight homelessness in King County. Pearl Jam will be performing The Home Shows, two shows at Safeco Field August 8 & 10, 2018, and as part of the shows, have committed to giving at least $1 million to fight homelessness in King County.

Bottles of Heritage Distilling Co. Home Shows label BSB-Brown Sugar Bourbon will be available exclusively from the website and at Heritage Distilling’s Washington tasting rooms, including locations in the Ballard and Capitol Hill neighborhoods in Seattle, Gig Harbor and Roslyn. $20 from each bottle sold will be donated to the Vitalogy Foundation for this effort with a goal of raising $200,000 total.

This is a limited edition bottling run. Once all bottles are gone no additional bottles under this label will be made.
Each bottle will run you $35 (plus shipping and handling, which varies by state).
