Pearl Jam just announced its US tour for this spring. Me = Giddy. I knew the tour was coming, but May is sooner that I expected so yay.
If you’re ambivalent about PJ, or if you’re a PJ hater (I know you’re out there), check em out live. It’s a sick show, taking their music to another level. The band’s developed kind of a cult following for live shows and most fans are repeat concert goers. Personally, I’ve been to close to 20 shows in five states and literally dream about the shows. As a plus, Band of Horses open (Is there a ghost in my house is such a cool song) and bluesy rockers Black Keyes will open May 20 in New York. The band always has great openers – like Kings of Leon, Bright Eyes, Sleater Kinney. Enough hype. Here’s the lineup.
