Pearl Jam @ Gibson Ampitheater (LA Night 2 - 10/1/09)

Pearl Jam played the same kind of show they always do Thursday night...EPIC. I've gotten slack recently for loving the PJ...not sure why. Too old school? Too mainstream? I don't know but if you don't like Pearl Jam then you have never seen them live. Not only do they put on one of the most passionate performances you will see, the fans are usually diehard. PJ takes care of their fanclub by giving them the best seats in the house. That means I was surrounded by people that were singing and dancing to every song...and whether you know every song or not...its infectious. And I don't think anyone can beat Eddie Vedder as the leader of such a chorus. The man's voice and spirit are just amazing. I realize yet again that I want to be Eddie Vedder.

Set List: (Interstellar Overdrive)/Corduroy, Severed Hand, Got Some, Do The Evolution, Dissident, Given To Fly, Johnny Guitar, Amongst The Waves, I Got Shit, Daughter, Jeremy, Unthought Known, Small Town, Driven To Tears, The Fixer, Rearviewmirror

1st encore: Just Breathe w/string quartet, The End w/string quartet, Lukin w/string quartet, Red Mosquito w/Ben Harper, Jazz Odyssey, Better Man/(Save It For Later)

2nd encore: Gonna See My Friend, I Believe In Miracles (Ramone, Ray), Once, Alive, Yellow Ledbetter/(Star Spangled Banner)
