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.

Pearl Jam Are Your 2019 Record Store Day Ambassadors!


What does that even mean?  Well, not a whole lot.  Are we getting a really cool Pearl Jam release this April 13th for Record Store Day?  Previous Ambassadors (Run The Jewels, St. Vincent, Metallica, Dave Grohl, Chuck D, and Jack White) have put out RSD releases while serving as Ambassadors, but some have not.

Given that Pearl Jam, as a band, has not regularly released anything on Record Store Day, and that they have a new album in the works that is, by all accounts, nowhere near ready for release, we'd have to guess that if something is coming, it won't be mind blowing.  Have we gotten a little bitter about the lack of great Pearl Jam releases over the past five years? 

Still, don't forget to look for the official list of releases, and enjoy Pearl Jam's official video including Mike McCready record shopping and footage from the band's 2005 in-store performance at Easy Street Records in Seattle.

Eddie To Be Featured in Soundtrack for Return to Mount Kennedy


Some never-before-heard instrumentals by Eddie Vedder will be featured in the film, Return to Mount Kennedy, which is screen in various locations in the Pacific Northwest.

No word on whether a soundtrack for the film will ever see the light of day, but here is an excerpt about the film and Eddie's contributions from the publisher:
In 1965 Jim Whittaker led Senator Robert Kennedy to the first ascent of a remote mountain in the Yukon named after the late president, JFK. Fifty years later, the sons of the original climbing team—a raucous band manager, a candidate for governor, and a young mountaineer—embark on an expedition to the mountain to celebrate the special bond that connects them all. Featuring unreleased instrumentals by Eddie Vedder and never before seen footage and photos of Robert Kennedy, the feature-length documentary sits at the intersection of politics, human rights, environmentalism and adventure.

Pearl Jam's #11: Bleak Prospects


Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament recently spoke with Rolling Stone about progress toward Pearl Jam's next album and why we've been waiting longer for this than any other Pearl Jam album.

It seems as though there is little reason that Pearl Jam hasn't released an eleventh studio album.  Jeff points noncommittally to the death of Chris Cornell ...
“It’d be fun to record or even just write a song together,” bassist Jeff Ament says. “I think when Chris [Cornell] passed, that’s really been a tough one to wrap our heads around, and then there’s just life stuff.”
... but ultimately, has no explanation as to why the band hasn't worked together to record an album.
“We’ve gone in, probably, four or five times in the last couple of years, so we have a whole ton of unfinished stuff,” Ament says. “We’re just sort of in a little bit of limbo. I’m sure everybody’s got a bunch more riffs, and I’m sure Ed’s got a handful of journal lyrics. It’s just going to take us all getting into a room together for six weeks and just knocking something out.”
Stone is reassuring that they are still working on an album ...
“We’re going to make a record, and we’re in the middle of it,” the guitarist says. “We’re just going to keep plugging away until we get one done.”
Unfortunately, those are not the words of a band with a passionate message to get out.  Although Stone admits that he enjoyed being able to release "Can't Deny Me," there is little else in the article to tell us that the band is excited about working on this album.  We're either going to be waiting a long time, or we're going to get an album from a bored band, writing and performing out of a sense of obligation.

Neither of those options sound good for the near future of Pearl Jam.
