It’s been a while! Had to come out of hiding with some highlights from an amazing Pearl Jam show last night in Brooklyn.
Pearl Jam and Brooklyn…two of my favorite all-time things!
Ed was frustrated for most of the night, he kept looking over at someone on Stone’s side. He was unhappy with the mic levels, mic feedback, two guitars crapping out on him, some bad tasting wine and he even showed frustration when he attempted to give the fan attending his 100th show a bottle of wine, he wound up throwing it because there was too much space between the stage and the railing…it seemed to add some extra angst to some songs which was a plus for us!
Regardless of the mishaps the show was great with a pleasing set list (see below).
I’m so glad I was able to experience the band up close for the first time in GA, NOTHING beats being up close and seeing all the little things that go on which you would never know about from far away.
A couple of highlights: First time seeing the band with Eddie at lead perform the Mother Love Bone song Chloe Dancer! Check it out:
Another highlight was toward the end of the show when they did Porch, Eddie decided to take out his frustrations by swinging on one of the light fixtures!
