    Default Pearl Jam

    and yes i even did the search engine this time, looks like we don't have a thread about the good ol PJ.
    Like or dislike?
    Would they be qualified to ever headline Coachella?
    There a great live band, and shows are being announced for their tour this summer.
    haven't heard anything about a new cd...but that would be good.

    I am indifferent with Pearl Jam. While I don't hate them and respect what they have done. I just don't care for them.

    I like Pearl Jam, never been a big fan or anything. They will headline Coachella one year, don't know when but it will happen. They are a headliner and the headliner pool seems awfully shallow lately, so it will happen.

    they do put on a very energetic and by far a worthwhile performance. had the privilage of seeing them back in 06 opening up for tom petty & the heartbreakers.
    They are due for a new cd-no? the last one that came out was their self titled one-right? with world wide suicide and other songs on it...
    Has anyone seen eddie veddar (solo) live?

    I saw Eddie Veddar live, back in 2002 at ATP UCLA. It was pretty good.

    For someone who was in 6th grade when Ten came out in 1991, and who was pretty much raised on the band's great early albums every 2-3 years after that, they're the best. The most diverse of the grunge explosion Seattle bands, with hard rockers and lovely ballads as well.

    Now, if you're say 24 or younger I can totally see how you would dislike PJ. The sound of popular music has changed drastically since then, and if I was born ten years later I probably wouldn't care for them either.

    But after having seen them 14x since 2000, I can say without hesitation that they're one of the best if not the best live band on the planet. And they also happen to be my favorite band.
    4/17 - Mogwai - El Rey (?)
    4/27 - Ghost BC - Fonda (?)
    4/29 - Franz Ferdinand - Wiltern (?)
    4/30 - Mono - Troubadour (?)
    5/03 - Philip Glass - Royce Hall

    saw Eddie VeddEr last year on the April Fools tour...amazing show, about 2 hours all by himself minus an encore with Liam Finn...bunch of awesome covers, into the wild songs and a couple PJ songs including Porch and Lukin...

    anyways, can't wait til the full tour is announced if one is coming...

    I touched Eddie Vedder's junk.

    Back in college, I saw Red Hot Chili Peppers with Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam (who I'd never heard of before) as support acts. Vedder dove into the crowd and was passed along toward the back of the hall, presumably to see how well his band's t-shirts were selling. As he made his way directly over my head, I figured it was my civic duty to participate. I thrust my hands skyward where they inadvertently found purchase in the "gentlemen's region." I did my bit, wiped my hands on my jeans and got on with my life.

    I don't really have much of an opinion of their music. They seem alright, and I wouldn't raise any vocal objection to their playing Coachella some time. But I don't know that I'd spend much time watching them, either.

    I listened to their first 2 records like crazy when they were released...the ones that followed? Not so much. I generally don't seek them out, but I rarely skip them when they pop up on shuffle. I am happy that they will be at ACL, as I never had a chance to see them at the height of my obsession. I know they'll put on a great show, & junior high Becca will be so pleased.

    There isn't even a question as to whether or not Pearl Jam is headliner quality. I saw them at Bonnaroo last year and they were really fucking good. "Black" and "W.M.A." are probably my 2 favorite PJ songs.

    "Black" breaks my heart. If I do indeed get to go to ACL( I'm going even if i have to hire a doppelganger to take my place at work) I will most surely shed a tear or two.

    the "i know someday you'll have a beautiful life in somebody elses sky but why can't it be mine" line is devastating...soo great live and Black KILLS when Ed adds on the We Belong Together tag at the end...

    Hopefully Pearl Jam will headline Coachella one day. Their show I saw back in 2006 was really great.

    Seeing as Pearl Jam was the first concert for Tollett on the Polo Fields giving him the idea that a fest could be done there, I'm pretty sure Pearl Jam will eventually headline

    Although they may have bad feelings about that show people were pissed about the venue and took it out on the band. The Polo fields were chosen because they did not have an exclusivity deal with Ticketmaster. Anyway people were tired and dusty and started taking their frustration out on the band by throwing their shoes. I've often thought this is why they've never played Coachella again, especially after their fear of festivals ala Roskilde.

    whats wrong with that? look at similar bands in terms of popularity and you'll find similar prices...what was Radiohead last year? $65? a pair of tickets from the Ten Club is $148...not bad when looking at the size of the band and what ticketmaster would throw on as far as fees

    11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
