Today in Pearl Jam History – The First Show

Twenty years ago today, a gangly group of musicians who had been a band for only a few weeks, took the stage at the Off The Ramp club in Seattle, WA. They called themselves Mookie Blaylock, and even from the soundcheck, it was clear that this would be a fantastic live band.

The band that would soon change their name to Pearl Jam introduced their live show to the world with the soundchecked Even Flow, a churning jam that would soon turn into a fast-paced rocker – an apt analogy for the band’s explosion onto the rock scene.

This, is Pearl Jam.
