Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam

The Pearl Jam concert this past Friday the other half and I went to was amazing. Not only did we get to see them perform our favorite songs but also covers of Pink Floyd and Lou Reed. Oh, and for the last song Carrie Brownstein’s (of the show Portlandia) band Sleater-Kinney reunited onstage to perform Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World” with Pearl Jam and R.E.M’s Scott McCaughey and Peter Buck.

Needless to say, that was by far one of the best concerts in my life.

Happy Monday y’all and be sure to stay warm!

Daughter

In celebration of my other half and I getting tickets to see Pearl Jam in Portland on the day after Thanksgiving (tickets went on sale on Saturday!), I give y’all my favorite song by them– “Daughter”. Growing up, I never really idolized Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera like a good majority of girls who were my age. Instead, I turned to local rock stations and found that the sound of the bands that they played suited my personality more so. Though I’d definitely say I listened to Nirvana more than Pearl Jam growing up, I definitely appreciated both bands.¬†Especially since both bands were on heavy rotation, and still are, for the radio station that shaped me while growing up.

Also, if y’all want to see Pearl Jam make sure to check out their tour website ASAP as some cities are already sold out!
