Glen Hansard in Temple of Dendur @ The Met -- 5/26/2011
Glen Hansard

Eddie Vedder will release his second solo album this Tuesday (5/31) Ukulele Songs via Universal, plus a live concert film Water on the Road. The album features guest vocals from Glen Hansard (The Frames, The Swell Season) and Cat Power's Chan Marshall. The DVD, directed by Brendan Canty of Fugzazi and Christoph Green, features performances from Vedder's 2008 solo tour. Ukulele Songs is currently streaming on NPR.

Vedder and Hansard will tour in support of the album this June and July. They will both also perform at the Pearl Jam Labor Day Destination Weekend festival at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, WI on September 3 and 4. Other performers include The Strokes, Queens of the Stone Age, Mudhoney, John Doe, Joseph Arthur, Liam Finn, and special guests to be announced. Tickets go on sale June 4 at 10 AM CST.

Pearl Jam are following the festival with a ten-day Canadian tour and a documentary film, Pearl Jam Twenty, directed by Cameron Crowe. The film will be released with an accompanying book and soundtrack album, for which Cameron Crowe selected the track listing, this fall.

Glen Hansard played a solo acoustic set in the Temple of Dendur at The Met last night (5/26). The show was "in celebration of the exhibition Guitar Heroes: Legendary Craftsmen from Italy to New York" which is at the museum through July 4th. More pictures from that show, and all tour dates, below...

Pearl Jam needs to go away

So does James Murphy.. Oh wait, he did. Yay!

Why should Pearl Jam "go away"? It would be one thing to wish an artist who is all hype and no substance to go away (ie. Rihanna, Katy Perry, etc), but PJ actually has integrity, and has built their history based on doing whatever they wanted to do, and not purposely selling out. And you want them to go away?

@2:42 Yes! The 90's ended! Tell that message to Eddie. That dude needs to retire already. So fucking obnoxious.

selling a record exclusively via target sorta seems like selling out

2:52 - Selling out would be letting Target tell them how to make their record They didn't do that. Target was just a way for them to distribute the music they created. I see nothing wrong with it.
2:51 - So, given that the 90's are over, let's also get rid of Radiohead, Flaming Lips, Nada Surf, and Weezer too.

Yes, please get rid of all of those bands, especially The Weez.

Nuh-uh! They didn't sell exclusively through Target. Indie record stores, iTunes, and the Pearl Jam website sold the record. Target was the exclusive *box store* seller.

2:51 is a 11 year old boy that thinks the gender roles on Gossip Girl are something to aspire to.

Citing:

"It sucks that I missed this"

"Pearl Jam needs to go away"

-- Pearl Jam seems to be pretty controversial;)
