We camped out at Bill’s Bar this past Friday and Sunday night before Pearl Jam played Fenway. Big thanks to Pearl Jam tribute 5 Against 1, Miller Lite, Rental Beast, and everyone who came out. See if you can spot yourself in the crowd! More
You probably know Bernie Corbett as the voice of Boston University Men’s Hockey and Harvard Football. More
Yes, a lot of music blogs have written about how PEARL JAM COVERED THAT SONG FROM THAT DISNEY MOVIE!!! But they didn’t actually “cover” it, per se. More
Here in 2013, aka The Future, it’s easy to dismiss Pearl Jam as a relic of The Past. “Oh, isn’t that quaint? They’re the last-great-band-standing from the Grunge Era.” (Sorry, Soundgarden. You truly were away too long. And while you were sleeping, Pearl Jam cuffed your drummer. So now you can’t tour or cut records while they’re on the road.)
It’s true. The Seattle rockers had their heyday almost 20 years ago. And their lineup of two guitars, bass, drums & vox does have that rock n’ roll throwback feel. Hell, they’re even getting airplay on Boston’s classic rock station. That’s what happens when your band is old enough to drink.
