Pearl Jam to help Make Poverty History in Melbourne tonight

They’re totally going all Bono one you: Just received word from Pearl Jam that they are playing the Make Poverty History concert tonight in Melbourne, Australia with JET and others. The concert website is not yet updated to include this information, but PJ says they’re in. There will be a live webcast here, one hour delayed.

Loosely correlated tune:
I Got You (live) – Pearl Jam
(Split Enz cover – okay, they’re from New Zealand but it’s the closest I could get this morning)


Bono joins Pearl Jam for “Rocking In The Free World”!!
(the first hint that something was afoot was when Vedder introduced the song by saying, “It’s a beautiful day . . .”)

STREAMING VIDEO (7 minutes in)

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
