Can you believe it’s been two years since Pearl Jam Twenty debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival? You can check out some goodies over on the PJ20 page, but I thought we would share this “Inside Pearl Jam Twenty” Interview with Cameron from Pearl Jam Radio on Sirius. This is the full length 1 hour and 12 minute interview. Enjoy!

Pearl Jam Twenty: World Premiere Recap

8 Comments

That’s right. Pearl Jam Twenty had its world premiere yesterday at 2pm (EST) at the beautiful Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto as part of the  36th annual Toronto International Film Festival. In addition to the 1,500 fans, Cameron, Jeff Ament, Matt Cameron, Boom Gaspar, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready, Eddie Vedder and Chris Cornell were in attendance.

The energy and the crowd were tremendous. PJ fans such as Jennifer and Tanya (pictured above) waited in line for 8 hours to get a front row seat. There were bursts of applause throughout and certainly some tears as well. The venue was an absolutely gorgeous place to host the event and the recently installed sound system was stunning. Here’s a few pictures that I took as Cameron and the band arrived.

 

Over the next few weeks, I will be posting video footage from the press conference with the band and Cameron that was held after the screening. Since the press conference deals with some spoilers from the film, I’d like to wait until many of you have seen the film.

Crowe’s Nest: Gossard Cameo, PJ Roots, Vedder, Citizen Dick

Stone Gossard and the “Waiting for the Interurban” statue

The Crowe’s Nest is a feature that collects random tidbits, etc. in one blog post. Today’s edition focuses on PJ related items:

  • Like many other places, Washington State/Seattle is having major financial problems. It doesn’t look like they will be attracting any new film and TV productions anytime soon as they have cut all tax incentives. This article talks about Seattle’s film legacy and includs a great picture (above) of Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard (who was part of Mother Love Bone at the time) on the set of Say Anything… (in a scene that was cut from the final film).
  • The Seattle Times looks back at Pearl Jam’s 20 years with a strong focus on their local roots. There’s some great anecdotes (especially around Eddie Vedder “helping out”), so you’ll want to check it out.
  • The San Diego Union Tribune talks with Eddie Vedder during his recent Ukelele tour. Topics include early influences like Pete Townshend and Neil Young, along with the upcoming PJ20. Here’s what Eddie had to say about looking back:

“I think that, in order to keep progressing, there should be some benefits to looking back, to help you determine what your future course may be. But if they are (there), I don’t think they’ve been tangible for any of us… What we’ve learned is that we really do live in the present. And, to be honest, this looking back thing make me feel like I’m glad we have someone as astute and devoted to music as Cameron Crowe at the helm of putting something together that would represent us and tell a certain number of stories that happened over (the past) 20 years.. So I think we’re just happy we’ve survived it and are still friends and more than that, happy that we’re still a working group.

  • Finally, a great quote about Singles and Citizen Dick by former OK Hotel booker/Gits drummer Steve Moriarty for Mark Yarm’s upcoming book, Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge, which will be released on Sept. 6, 2011.
“I remember seeing fake posters on the poles for a show that the band in [Singles] was supposed to be playing. They’d filmed them, then left the posters up. We were like, ‘Is that show really going on at the OK Hotel? I don’t remember booking that.’ I was like, ‘Who the fuck are Citizen Dick?’”
