10 Best Easy Street Live Performances

Thanks to Donny from All That's Sacred for the tip on this write up by Matt Vaughn, owner of Easy Street Records in Seattle, who writes up his 10 favorite in-store performances.  You may recognize number one.  If you don't have the EP, Half Full will revitalize your interest in Riot Act!

I had never had to hold a secret like this one. [ ... ] Pearl Jam, Kelly, and I held the secret for about a month. A few days before the show, I had to tell two of my managers (they were held to secrecy), but other than that nobody was informed. I bussed the indie store guys out to join my staff at our “work party.” The band hid out in the vinyl section upstairs, which I had roped off - nobody could see them.
Read the rest as well as the whole list here.
