Pearl Jam ticket giveaway!


Another sign of times: Pearl Jam is about to release Backspacer, their ninth studio album, independently on their own MonkeyWrench label. As manager Kelly Curtis says, the band is “making good on its longstanding desire to release its music on its own terms.” It’s by no means a rejection of large corporations — in fact, Target is the the album’s exclusive mass retail partner, but as Curtis also say, it’s an effort to “make the music accessible across multiple platforms for our fans and work with businesses — big and small — supportive of [the band’s] overall sensibilities.”

Pearl Jam starts a brief U.S. tour next week before heading over to Australia. They will begin at our own Key Arena on September 21 & 22. We have one pair of tickets to give away for the 9/22 show on our Facebook fan page. Just leave a comment on our 9AM post before 11AM today and 1 lucky person will be chosen at random.
