Lucky stars in your eyes :: Eddie Vedder in Berkeley, 04/07/08

"Trying to remember, but my feelings can't know for sure
Try to reach out, but it's gone
Lucky stars in your eyes
..."

With those lyrics, Eddie Vedder took the stage Monday night in Berkeley with a rare Daniel Johnston cover that I've heard only a handful of times since 1994. Sitting on a gorgeous set with actual decoration and design (old suitcases, projection machine, gold lamé wings, a backdrop facade with abstract buildings of wood, later lifted to reveal blue skies) Vedder strolled out, hung his coat up on a hook like he was entering his living room, and sat down with us for over two hours.

Thanks to the good people at the Ten Club, I was in Row C and felt intimately engaged in Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall (capacity 2089) with its pristine, warm acoustics. Given the amount of banter back from the crowd, maybe the acoustics were too good. Maybe we can work out the one-way directional acoustics somehow. More on that later.

Accompanied with an arsenal of guitars, ukuleles, a banjo, and an amplified footboard, Vedder's set was a far-reaching collection of solo tunes from the Into The Wild soundtrack, unreleased songs and covers, with only a handful of standard Pearl Jam tunes -- and many of those deep cuts from the back catalog. It was really a delight for this fan to see material I had never heard live, and Vedder's voice sounded rich and golden and pure.

There was little variation from the setlists of previous nights, so anyone who had read a review in the paper or trolled the boards online knew what was coming next. I would have liked to see a little bit more changeup from night to night, as there are so many great songs he could have explored, but I am not complaining.

The soaring "I Am Mine" is a favorite song, and it was gorgeous to hear early on in the night, as was the rare "Dead Man" from the Penn film soundtrack (Sean Penn was there both nights, I hear). Dead Man was the very first song I ever saw Vedder perform, in a solo pre-set at the San Jose show in 1995, so it was a somber treat to see it again. The rarely heard "I'm Open" from 1996's No Code was played as a modified version that left out the spoken word bit about a man lying in bed in a room with no door (good call there, Ed).

"Man of the Hour" did a phosphorescent slow-burn with its malleable melody and honey-rich vocals, while "Porch" was not something I was expecting, and completely rocked my face off. Ed's furiously strumming arm was a rapid-fire blur of heart and urgency, and I found myself (quietly!) singing along to every word and meaning it. That's my favorite song off Ten on most days, one of the few songs off that album that I could hear a good number more times live. It was nice to hear a rocker in with the acoustic stuff. And Lukin!! Acoustic performances of Lukin are something I never fail to get a kick out of.

The conversational tone of the evening led to some interesting storytelling on Ed's part between songs, filling in details that I hadn't known before. During the explanation of the West Memphis Three situation (tickets were auctioned off for each show to support their legal defense fund), Ed led into the extremely rare song "Satellite" that I had never even heard before Monday night, saying it was written for the wife of one of the West Memphis Three, Damien Echols. She was in attendance Monday night, and Ed performed the love song he wrote just for her and Damien.

Satellite - Eddie Vedder
(an especially nice live premiere from 2002)

Despite Ed's requests for mitigation of the constant barrage of comments from the small crowd, the living room feel proved too enticing for many who wanted a chance to converse with their idol in that quiet setting. Vedder first quoted Tom Waits in a gruff imitation, saying Waits had once revealed to him that "silence is like a blank piece of paper," then later telling the yellers a bit more blatantly to "shut the fuck up," to little avail. From song requests to comments about everything from presidential candidates (wait, he's supporting Obama?! Shocker) to general supportive "We love you" sentiments, I kept really wishing people would please just sit quietly and listen to the man I came to hear. I'm all for enthusiasm but it got a bit much after a thousand times.

One guy did yell after "Guaranteed" that Ed should've won an Academy Award, to which Ed humorously mused that he had been watching VH1 'I Love the 80s' special recently, and had seen that the Ghostbusters theme won an Oscar in 1985. "That song I just played you is not as good as Ghostbusters," he said with a smile, "but I'm going to keep trying." Ed also threw in some pretty horrifying song lyrics from a Bay Area punk band called the Yeastie Girls, during a conversation about Fugazi. The words yeast and girls should really never ever be used in a sentence together, much less a band name. Please and thank you.

After an amazing run of well-selected cover songs, Ed closed his first encore with the vocal loopings of the song "Arc" from 2002's Riot Act. The piece incorporates layers of wordless vocalizations, and was written for the 9 Pearl Jam fans killed in the crowd during the tragic happenings of the 2000 Roskilde festival. In 2003, Pearl Jam played this song at 9 shows, one show for each of the victims. It is rarely-played, a raw and haunting piece that echoed on after the blue velvet curtain closed and Ed left the stage.

After lengthy applause, Ed brought back out opener Liam Finn and accompaniment from Eliza-Jane Barnes, along with Marin County songwriter Jerry Hannan (who had joined him earlier to help perform his song "Society") for a rousing version of "Hard Sun." The security guards were being prison-guard-tough for the whole set on photos or video, patrolling the aisles every three minutes, giving sharp looks and pointed finger threats to fans who dared desire to capture the moment for posterity or for their music blog. But during Hard Sun, the crowd overflowed down to fill the aisles and I was able to capture a bit of that joyous closer for you, complete with Eddie-the-Pearl-Jam-frontman air jump on the final guitar chord:

Other notes:
**I didn't arrive early enough to snag a limited edition poster, but there were some very cool playbills being given out at the door with details on the show, artwork, and all the relevant causes and musicians. But PJ fans got greedy and took more than one apiece. After some Robin-Hood-like thievery from those with plenty, I went home a happy girl with my own ill-gotten souvenir. I didn't do the swiping but I can't say I turned down the gains.

**24-year old New Zealander opener Liam Finn was energetic (almost spastic, in a wonderfully unbridled and enthusiastic way) as he worked through material from his solo debut album I'll Be Lightning. His music has strong melodic sensibilities (not unlike his dad Neil Finn) but he also really had an edge on the rhythms, with the proclivity to lapse into some rock and roll shrieks. He was out signing things after his set, and I told him I enjoyed watching him on the drums. A reader compared him to Animal from the Muppets, all flailing limbs and furry faced. I would see him again.

**One of my faithful readers is an Iraq veteran named Josh who recently wrote me an immensely moving and humbling email to tell me how much my words and music had meant to him while he was in the desert, flying Blackhawk medic missions and trying to save kids' lives. Josh and his wife flew out from where he is currently stationed in Hawaii specifically for the Berkeley shows, as an anniversary gift to each other, and a vacation before he undergoes surgery for a broken back sustained in Iraq. Josh was in row 2 with his back brace, and one of the most moving moments of the night for me was when he and his wife stood silently together for the entire performance of "No More." I felt overwhelmed.

**Finally . . . near midnight on Tuesday night, I was on the train heading back from an awesome Giants game (man I've missed that ballpark) and I get a frantic breathless call from my friend Sam, telling me that Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready had just showed up at night two. Apparently during the encore, Vedder started musing, "I've got Jeff Ament's rug, Stone Gossard's guitar, Matt's drum... but I didn't have anything from Mike McCready . . . so I Fedex'd him out." Then they rolled Mike out on a cart, and the two went on to play All Along The Watchtower and Yellow Ledbetter together. Ha! Sean Penn also joined in on the jubilee, a bit oddly (does he sing?).


More than anything, I'd say these shows are great because of the sense of fun and experimentation, a chance to explore some musical ground that we haven't seen. I'm heartened and glad to see Ed in such a good place.

whee, i've been waiting for this post and i'm SO EXCITED that you were able to post a recording!!!

sounds like this show was the same as the SC one in a lot of ways, esp. the shouting idiots. my favorite was when someone yelled "LET'S PARTY!" and Eddie said, "What the fuck have we been doing? i mean, i've sorta been working, but what have you been doing?" HA.

Porch also "completely rocked my face off" - that is absolutely the best way to describe it.

other thoughts:
-I loved liam finn, i bought his CD and he signed it! v. cool.
-The song about Santa cruz was so amazing and awesome and NOT just because i live here. the sentiment in it was just right and really captured how it feels to come home. wow, it would be cool if he really moved here... i can just imagine being in line behind eddie vedder at new leaf market.... ;-)
-When Eddie took off his jacket and was wearing a plaid shirt, i giggled like a 14 year old girl.
-any chance of finding a recording of the santa cruz show? ;-D

anyway, the Santa Cruz show was excellent and i had an amazing night - sounds like you did too ;-)

Thanks to the Ten Club I was Sitting center stage in Row D Monday night. Where you in the middle group of seats or one of the side sections? That was one hell of a show, sorry you missed Tuesday's show, it was incredible. Words almost can't describe it. Sean Penn said a few nice words about Ed, and Ed sang a very funny song about Sean. Mike, Ed and Liam tore up "Yellow Ledbetter" and "All Along The Watchtower!" Their version of YL was a lot like Ed, Stone & Mike's version from The Showbox back in May of 2004. Liam started out on drums and Ed on acoustic guitar, while Mike was playing his solo, Ed and Liam traded instruments and tore the house down! In case you or your readers haven't heard the 3-man band version of YL, I've included a link so people can download the Ed, Stone & Mike version from '04. Enjoy everyone!

Hi Heather,

Great review. I'm the guy who introduced myself to you while you were waiting in line to see Liam Finn after his set. Thanks again for all the great music!

Last Friday, I had a ticket to the Tues. Berkeley show in my cart on ticketmaster, but decided against it because I was going to SC and Berkeley 1 and spending the weekend in SC, so I thought it was too much. I should have bought that ^^&@&$*@*%***ing ticket!

Thanks again for the show!

Makes me thankful I am gong to see them when they come to DC in june...but I do hate the new "1st 2 row lottery". Last time my member number (only 4 digits..woohoo me) was the 1st one, so I got really good seats.

Shawn! Yes! That's it! I knew I had seen the wings before, Vitalogy tour came to mind, but I just sat and kind of looked at them pensively, like deja vu from a dream where you can't remember the details. I'm getting old. 28, what can I say?

Heather....

Woman... Whoa... man... THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU for posting this. I went to this first Berkeley show as well and prayed I could find recordings so I could relive that night. My wife and I are still just utterly moved by this concert, soundtrack, book, and film. This is especially true as we grieve the death of a family member who was killed on his way home from kitesurfing at Stinson last month. He lived his life to the fullest, going into the wild on his own terms. Eddie's soundtrack, and tunes Monday night have resonated down to the soul as we live a life without.

Thank you!

Sean Penn, Robin Wright Penn call off divorce
Marin Independent Journal Staff Report
Article Launched: 04/09/2008 09:16:49 PM PDT

Are Marin residents Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn back together?

That seemed possible Tuesday when Marin County Superior Court Commissioner Beverly Wood dismissed divorce proceedings between the longtime Ross couple.

That came a day after the pair attended an Eddie Vedder concert together at the University of California at Berkeley, and Penn reportedly went on stage to dedicate a song to his maybe-not-so-estranged wife.....

they've pulled down all references to boots at pj forums -- I understand the whole "just posted" argument, not like these aren't gonna be out someday ... but you couldn't wait a few more days until the tour finished?

disappointing

nice write up though!

 
At April 12, 2008 9:56 AM, Blogger heather said...

Brennan, thanks for the Satellite mp3 and the ATP show!

Also, anonymous, thank you for visiting and reading this site, but I must say that your logic eludes me. I'm baffled; what would possibly be the point in waiting until the tour is over to post a boot?? As if someone with the ability to go to one of these shows would say, "Wow, you know, now that I've heard a middling-quality audience boot of one show on the tour, I don't need this ticket anymore. I'll just sit at home on my computer and listen to Ed that way." Ludicrous! Many many people were unable to go to these shows, or went and want to hear it again. Listening to a bootleg in no way affects Ed's relative success on this tour. On the contrary, I think it helps generate a buzz.

But hey, what do I know.

Hi Heather-
I have been so envious reading about the EV shows on the Ten Club message board, and wishing I could just hear one. I couldn't swing either this tour or the PJ June tour.

Then I saw I had a message which I had never opened. It was from you back in September inviting me (and other Denver 10C fans)to the Immagine in Cornice screening. I met you at this (thanks again for putting that on) but long ago lost your blog address. Now I rediscover your blog, and get the bonus that you posted the songs and a bit of video. Wonderful! (that leap at the end is pure Townshend. I am amazed Eddie has refrained from any Townshend or Neil Young covers so far) I am so glad you enjoyed yourself, and thanks again for posting the songs. You made my day!

Heather,

I completely agree with you about there being no point in waiting until the tour is over. The only other thing you forgot to mention is that all of the shows are sold out, which just makes anonymous's point is less valid.

When Pearl Jam releases their own boots they don't wait until the tour is over.

Anon, I never said that I would be unwilling to remove the files if asked. Even if I disagree with the seeming crackdown on fandom on this tour by the powers that be, I am willing to ultimately comply as per my stated blog policy. I think firedande's beef was with your overall tone, which (to me) came off as smug and know-it-all. You can just stop by as a reader. If I need intellectual property advice, I'll be sure to let you know. I mean, we can agree to disagree but if you're the same anonymous that keeps stopping by and leaving comments on this topic, one wonders why you can't just say your piece and let it die, why you have to keep coming back here and poking, inciting. Fandom didn't used to be a crime, especially as it pertained to live music/live recordings/fanshot video. It makes me a little sad that it is now.

two days after surgery, hating the physical aspects of recovery, but definitely enjoying the replay of our show (when I'm not totally inebriated from all the morphine and other drugs, but sometimes more when on drugs, haha) The surgery lasted about five hours but they said it was a success. Although I am fighting pneumonia now. Lucy's been bouncing between work school and the hospital (she's loving her copy too) You have yet again helped this Vet get through a tough time.

Hi Helen,
SOMFATMTYLM from Australia here! Congrats on the great work and I have taken the liberty to post your recordings onto a larger stage on the internet - the land of bittorrents. Using you ZIP file, I have created 2 downloads and if the HTML links do not work go to thepiratebay.org and search music under Eddie Vedder. The download links are:-

I hope you take no umbrage and if Eddie's minders take exception, we will see that Eddie cares more for the holy dollar than real open principles.
Love ya work ... take care!
