Pearl Jam - ...plays Acoustic For Youth Care

Why did Pearl Jam decide to play this show?

We wanted to play an intimate home town show and Benaroya, being the premier theater, was our first choice...that and the fact that it's across the street from one of my fav Seattle restaurants-Wild Ginger...ha. Also, hearing that YouthCare was in need of some awareness and money to get their new building going made it an extra special event. We met some amazing kids and volunteers doing that show.

What were some of the highlights of the Benaroya show for you?

Playing some of the quieter songs that don't normally get played in a big
loud rock set...and hearing everyone crystal clear. I love playing Thin Air, Around the Bend, Lowlight and those types of songs.

What were some of the things you did differently for this show, in terms of how you play or in the instruments you played?

We played to the room....turned down a lot...and concentrated on making the acoustic/low volume electric work with the songs that were normally electric...personally, I played a lot more upright than normal because the sound worked for the room. You can really hear us playing to the songs, to Ed's voice and Mike's searing's more naturally dynamic than in a big venue, although I miss the adrenaline that sheer volume generates, at times.

You guys played MTV Unplugged in 1992 – the first live acoustic performance from the band. In what ways was the Benaroya show most different, other than the obvious?

We're better players than we were in 1992 and we don't have to jump around so much to get the attention....the songs do it for us.

How did the band determine the set list for this show?

I think we tried to work in a lot of songs of a quieter nature...we took a few more chances and for the most part it worked out...although you can hear on a couple songs that we had only played them occasionally in the past few years....

Pearl Jam is a band that continually gives back, especially to the Seattle community. Why do you feel it’s important for a band to be involved philanthropically?

Because we can. It's amazing to use our music to reach out to the community with charities that are important to and need us. It's more important now than ever with the Bush administration pulling the rug out from under a lot a programs for education, the arts, environmental issues-all things that will have a huge impact on the immediate future for kids and the earth they will live in. Get out and vote!

Thoughts from Stone Gossard on “Live at Benaroya Hall, October 22, 2004”


It’s me Stone, and I’m going to write a little about our new record that is coming out soon. It is a live recording of a show we played last year at the Benaroya Hall. We had decided do a concert to raise money for a group called Youth Care in Seattle. This is a frontline organization that interacts with homeless youth and gives them options for shelter, health care and counseling. We have had close contact with one of the many YouthCare facilities for years and have been very impressed with there passion and commitment coordinating this important service.

In the spirit of our connection with YouthCare and the Orion center we played this acoustic show at a superb sounding concert hall in Seattle called Benaroya. This is where the Seattle Symphony plays as well as lot of other acoustic music. We had a blast at the show and felt so good about the evening that we wanted to make it available to everyone. This we hope will create even more awareness about YouthCare but also be a cool listening experience for those who want to hear the band in concert hall setting. We are also pledging some of the proceeds from this record to go back into the YouthCare system so it is another opportunity for everyone to help out a great organization. We had a blast doing this show and hope that everyone enjoys the evening as much as we did......Stone
