Vault #9: Seattle 12/8/1993


Yesterday, Pearl Jam announced the release of their latest in the Vault series, Seattle, 12/8/1993.

Here is the announcement from the band.
Vault #9 is the December 8, 1993 show from Seattle's Mercer Arena the second of three nights that wrapped up a big year in support of VS.

"If you're looking to capture the raw, brazen and unbridled energy of Pearl Jam's early era, then this is the concert for you. With only two albums of material to glean their set list from, this high energy evening includes spellbinding takes on Release, Dissident, Go and Deep. The Momma Son trilogy of Alive, Once and Footsteps is performed in sequence and the encore features the second ever performance of Tremor Christ and paying tribute to the day this concert fell on, a scorching take on The Beatles' I've Got A Feeling." - Rob Bleetstein
You can pre-order the 3-record set for $50 (+ &16 domestic S&H) at the Ten Club website.

Here's the setlist, but Pearl Jam has not confirmed that the set contains all song (it probably does).

Release, Even Flow, Dissident, Sick o’ Pussies/Go, Animal, Jeremy, Deep/Why Go, Daughter/(Do You Feel Lucky)/(W.M.A.), Glorified G, Alive, Once, Footsteps, Porch


encore 1: Last Exit, Tremor Christ, Blood, State of Love and Trust, I’ve Got a Feeling, Rearviewmirror

encore 2: Rockin’ in the Free World

Peak to Sky, July 6th, 2019


This week, the Ten Club announced a music festival, Peak to Sky, curated Mike McCready on July 6th, in Big Sky, Montana, featuring some of his favorite musicians: Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Duff McKagan of Guns N' Roses, Brandi Carlile, and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters.

Tickets go on sale April 19th, you can get more information here.

No word on whether other members of Pearl Jam will be present, but given that Jeff Ament was born in and currently owns a home and studio in Montana, it's hard to imagine that he won't stop by.

Infinite Color & Sounds Vinyl Singles


If you're a big fan of the Infinite Sound and Color project where Mike McCready pedlays music while Kate Neckel painted, then maybe you'd like to own a little piece of history.  The Ten Club, with very little fanfare, has released three vinyl singles featuring music and artwork from the project.
The six tracks on these three singles document the very first time Mike McCready & Kate Neckel collaborated on their Sound Painting Series. As Mike experimented with atmospheric soundscapes and guitar loops, Kate created the visual piece with various mediums on a large canvas, each influencing the other during this initial session. What was captured, both musically and on canvas, are majestic & ethereal. Hope you enjoy these special and limited releases, which are the songs that influenced Infinite Color & Sound's first painting, Mellowtron Shots.
You can buy all three singles as a set ($39 + $8 domestic S&H + tax) or individually ($15 + $6 domestic S&H + tax).  The tracks are below, in order left to right.
