The best news?  Tickets are free!  ... if you're willing to work for a chance to win them.

"We hope Pearl Jam fans will sign up to become Global Citizens — not just to earn tickets to the show — but to be part of a movement that encourages leaders of nations with the greatest wealth to apply aid, trade and governance policies in support of nations and communities in the greatest need. People living on less $1.50-a-day deserve the opportunity to lift themselves up out of extreme poverty." - Stone Gossard, Pearl Jam

For more information on the event and how to get tickets, visit Global Citizen.

NYC? We shall see!


Sick in the Head by Judd Apatow


When Judd Apatow sat down with the band in 2013 to interview Pearl Jam leading up to the release of Lightning Bolt, he must have found a little extra time with Eddie Vedder.  Earlier this month, Apatow released his first book, Sick in the Head: Conversations About Life and Comedy, and it features a 2013 interview with Eddie Vedder.

Topics include religion, making his daughter cry with Ukulele Songs, and the bad influence of the Disney Channel.  Having not read the interview myself, I'm forced to send you to Alternative Nation for pieces of the interview.

If you want to check it out, all proceeds from book sales benefit 826 National, an organization focused on helping students, ages 6–18, with expository and creative writing. 826 National is a past beneficiary of the Vitalogy Foundation.

If you can't be bothered, check out Apatow's interview with the bad on YouTube.
