Concert Review: Pearl Jam Rock The House In Philadelphia, PA


(PCM) We had the profound opportunity to witness an evening with Pearl Jam when the Seattle-based band stopped by the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA for a two- night gig. We were able to catch night one, during which the band played an epic three-hour set to a sell-out crowd. The audience was just as enthused to see the band as they were to be back in Philly. The last time Pearl Jam played in Philly was three years ago and  this show marked the  23rd time Pearl Jam had played in city of brotherly love.


There were so many memorable moments during the show. One of our favorites occurred when Eddie sang a song to a couple that had just gotten married high up in the box seats. The lights shined on them as he sang and they kissed. It was a moment we will always remember, as Eddie Vedder serenaded the couple with , “Picture In A Frame” by Tom Waits saying it was “the most romantic song I know”!


Pearl Jam has such an amazingly extensive music catalog that we can’t even begin to imagine just how hard it is for them to craft a set list each and every night. Night one in Philly was like a glorious buffet of classic Pearl Jam favorites with a few deep cuts thrown in, much to the overall delight of fans.


Prior to breaking into “All Night” Vedder shared some stories with the audience about the very first time that the band played in Philadelphia and the atmosphere during their 1992 performance at J.C. Dobb’s. Much the same as the rest of us, Vedder admitted to being saddened to hear that the legendary venue has since gone under.


The spotlight was turned on Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament leading into “Low Light”, as Vedder praised his skills as a master musician and terrific songwriter before breaking into the song. “Love Boat Captain” was dedicated to nine year fan Joshua, who was in attendance at the show due to a wonder organization called “Given To Life”. The crowd cheered as the spotlight was turned on young Joshua and his family who were absolutely overjoyed and jamming their hearts out with the band.


After an amazing performance of “Evenflow”, Vedder speaks highly of drummer Matt Cameron and his amazing memory before breaking into the Cameron penned song “Into The Moonlight”. It was wonderful to witness the closeness and camaraderie that exists between the members of Pearl Jam who have managed to maintain such a tight unit after twenty-five years. That is no easy feat considering the ever changing musical landscape.


Another amazing set from an amazing band. Pearl Jam’s music has always had a message, and that message has spoken to their longevity with their fan’s. Pearl Jam celebrates 25 years of being a band this year. An amazing feat if we do say so ourselves! If you’re interested in this set list or any of their shows from this tour past or present you can find their official bootlegs of the show’s on the link found here!

Musicians Yacht Sell Their Sex Tape For Five Dollars To Combat Hackers And Generate Album Sales


(PCM) LA-based music duo Yacht, who also happen to be romantically involved, are fighting back against the culprits who allegedly leaked a sex tape of the duo, by selling their own version of the tape for mere price of $5.00 available for download on their website.

The pair claim that someone illegally got a hold of the tape and began to distribute it online. They did not elaborate on where the original tape was available or just how many people had actually viewed it.  The band members, Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans, posted the following message to Yacht Facebook page:

Claire and I — who have been romantic and artistic partners since 2006 — made a “sex tape.” It was intended for us only. We don’t feel the need to justify the reason we made it. Anyone reading this who has been in a long term partnership understands that preserving the relationship is an ever-changing and challenging thing. It’s especially difficult when the lines between career and romance are as merged as ours are. The financial pressures that we’ve been under, which de facto extend into our extracurricular lives, created a circumstance in which we felt like we needed a bit of an escape from the day-to-day. So we turned on a camera, became naked, and had sex. We assumed that we were the only people who would be privy to that video. I guess we were naive. Now you have the option to be privy to that video. For us, that’s a shame.

We feel like art is an act of generosity. The art we make for the public is for that expressed purpose. And now we’re in an awkward situation where the art that we made for us and us alone is being viewed by anyone who has the inclination to hit play — a true and humiliating blurring of the public and private.

Jona and Claire went as far as to say that they planned to press charges against the individual who stole the tape and made the decision to release the tape themselves. However, as it turns out the entire situation is a hoax created as a way to hype the new music video that Yacht will be releasing this week.  It has been pointed out by several sources close to the band that they only people who have claimed to see it are celebrity friends/supporters of Yacht and no one else seems to be able to find it online.

While this is certainly a great, albeit sneaky, tactic to generate buzz surrounding the band, many feel duped by the publicity stunt and angered that the band would go to this length to generate video views. When we made an attempt to check out the page with the “sex tape” in question we got an error message. Let us know if you or anyone you know of has been able to successfully download the video!

Blink 182 Drop New Single! Band Set To Embark On Summer Tour With A Day To Remember, All Time Low And The All American Rejects

(PCM) Fans are overjoyed with the news that Blink 182 will be hitting the road this summer for a headlining tour and bringing along their friends A Day To Remember, All Time Low, The All-American Rejects and DJ Spider. This is without a doubt going to be one of the hottest touring packages of the summer.

The news of the tour comes after Blink 182 released a lyric video for their brand new single “Bored To Death”! We absolutely can’t wait to rock out to this one live! The track is the first single from the band’s highly anticipated new album, “California”, set for release July 1st. The track was slated to premiere at a later date, but due to a studio leak the band decided, much to our delight, to release the track earlier than expected.

The tour will kick off on July 22nd in San Diego and wraps up with dates at Irvine Meadows September 29th and the Forum October 1st.

Nada Surf Set To Play Le Bataclan In Paris

Nada-Surf(PCM) Barsuk recording group Nada Surf will be among the first artists to perform at Paris’ famed Le Bataclan upon the world renowned venue’s long awaited reopening in the wake of last November’s terrorist attacks. The NYC-based band – who were among the many artists who took part in Eagles of Death Metal’s “Play It Forward” campaign, performing EODM’s “I Love You All The Time” to benefit victims of the November 13th attacks – will play Le Bataclan on December 2nd.

“We’re not nervous about playing Le Bataclan,” says Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws, “in the same way we weren’t nervous being in New York after 9/11. There are two reasons we want to play this show: one is that we want to help contribute to a sense of life continuing as it did before. We want to help people have a good time and bring positive intentions that stand in opposition to fear. The other reason is in the same spirit – Le Bataclan is our favorite venue in Paris. We’ve played there three times. The day after the attacks we asked our manager when we could play there next.”
Currently touring Europe in support of their acclaimed new album, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, Nada Surf will spend much of this year on the road, including an epic summer world tour encompassing North American headline dates, international festival appearances, and more. The announced dates culminate with a pair of New York City homecoming gigs, set for Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 17th and NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on September 18th. For complete details and ticket information, please see

The band recently performed live on NPR’s nationally syndicated “World Café” and was filmed performing at KEXP’s new studios in Seattle, WA.
Nada Surf’s eighth studio recording, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE includes the single, “Rushing,” accompanied by a romantic companion video filmed earlier this year in Paris. “Rushing” – written and directed by acclaimed French filmmakers Emilie and Sarah Barbault – can be viewed now at Nada Surf’s official YouTube channel.

Want To Earn Some Extra Cash This Summer? Make A Musical Bet!


(PCM) Some you will see that title and click on it, probably thinking it’s a get rich quick scam or something along those lines. No … this is guaranteed money! No, you don’t have to hold a neighborhood car wash or cut the neighbors lawn, or better yet construct some sort of stand so that your kids can sell lemonade out of the front yard. Even though I have done all of the aforementioned and they can kind of provide a good time. Maybe not the cutting grass part, but hey, it keeps you moving at least!

This is a different way of making some cash. Here’s my idea and it involves calling your friends or a family member. Especially the kind of friend that has an old concert t-shirt tucked away in their dresser drawer. Or maybe lost in the back of a closet. Maybe your friend from back in the day that had the long hair and rocked out to Guns ‘N Roses.

If you have been stuck under a rock or away or a distant planet, I would like to break the news to you that Axl Rose has rejoined his old band Guns ‘N Roses. Yes, the inevitable has happened and Axl has rejoined his old friends onstage. In fact, they will set out on a stadium tour this summer. Then it was announced that Axl Rose will replace Brian Johnson on AC/DC’s “Rock or Bust Tour.” The reason given for Johnson’s absence from the tour was due to hearing loss. I don’t know if I believe that, but we shall see how all that play’s out.

The tour is supposed to kick off on May 7th in Portugal. Let’s see if Axl shows up. I hope he does. He owes it to the fans that he has disappointed over the years for no showing and canceling. It will be the ultimate retribution if all the planned shows with AC/DC and G’NR with Axl on the mic are played without any issues. So, all I’m saying is if you want to make some extra cash this summer, make a bet with a friend that these shows will be a nightmare, and Axl doesn’t show.

Maybe they will wrap him in bubble wrap and deliver him to each show like that, who knows? All I’m really hoping is that history doesn’t repeat itself, and Axl finally man’s up and rocks the house like he was always meant to do!
