The best show I've been to. Easily. I told my friend, "this is going to be a show to write home about." It was her first time seeing Pearl Jam. I kept doing a minute countdown until 9pm. They're a prompt band, always out by 9 or 9 on the dot. Like at 8:45 this guy comes to the girls next to us and is like, "I got the set list!!!!" and he told us the first song! ohh, I have a nasty look. The girl next to me asked "are you mad you know the first song?" I'm like, "no, but I better not find out anymore."

I mentioned to my friend earlier, "if eddie talks about the band pacing themselves or the audience pacing themselves, thats the tell they're playing a long time" At 10:38, the first break, eddie says, "we may not even be half over yet, so we're just all going to pace ourselves" my friend looks at me, as if I have seen this show before.

I also knew the band would do something for Halloween. DEVO. NEVER WOULD HAVE GUESSED. seeing the band dressed as devo had to put a smile on all faces.

I knew closing the Spectrum was a special night and I knew they only play Crown of Thorns at special times, but I wasn't holding my breath. Eddie talked about the sound at the spectrum and the sound in other places and hes like, "we're going to take it back now.." and then I heard the first 2 chords of Crown of Thorns. I didn't know who to shout it to, that this is MY ONE SONG. THE SONG. I ran over to this chick near me b/c throughout the night I could tell she was a huge fan. We high fived. My friend was like, "so I really thought that girl was going to ask you for your number." I thought so as well! HA!

During Rockin' in The Free World confetti and balloons fell from the ceiling. What a site. A huge party, only thing missing was ice cream! Of course tons of confetti fell into my purse, along with my boots. I kept it. Its already tacked up on my cork board. Ticket stub is on my fridge. Balloon is floating around my apartment. Tshirt being worn. The one thing I can't stop thinking after seeing such a fun show, "I picked a good band to have as a favorite."

nothing too crazy in the setlist. good to hear the stuff from the new album though. mike played a full star spangled banner after yellow ledbetter to end the show...a gold medal winning bobsled guy played bass with the band for the last song. they sang happy birthday to some tour manager guy and a cake fight ensued...eddie played the last six songs or so with blue cake frosting in his beard.

my fan club seats were 15th row, pretty much dead center. i was hoping for a closer row, but can't argue with being right in the middle, i guess.

Vedder's guest spot on REM's latest album is barely recognizable. I kept forgetting he was on it and then finally made myself pay attention and definitely caught his voice in the mix. It's funny how he is listed in the credits. Most people say "blah blah appears courtesty of Blah Blah Records," but Vedder's says something like "Eddie Vedder appears courtesy of himself."
I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

SOUNDS LIKE A NIGHTMARE.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

How do you feel about Ukulele?

They have been using Small Town in the ads for Rescue Me.

It's sometimes a hard cookie to listen because it gets a bit monotone. It's basically him and a ukele and you shouldn't underrate that kind of instrument. But I think you should listen to it during a road trip to a cabin in the woods, or during a campfire setting. I've learned that he's that kind of dude that gather friends to share songs around a campfire. Erm, so that's my 20 cents about that.
