Pearl Jam is making their big homecoming this week for two very sold out shows (I desperately looked for tickets but couldn't find any) on Wednesday, August 8 and Friday, August 10, for their "Home Shows."
It's the first time in five years since the boys have returned to their hometown so you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be a rock show for the ages - but this time it's much, much more than the music.
Pearl Jam's goal for the "Home Shows" is to shine a spotlight on the problem and solutions for the homeless crisis in King County. Not only have they pledged $1 million towards homelessness initiatives in Seattle, but they are calling upon the community to make an impact as well. And yes, this means you too!
It's simple. Just plan to make dinner reservations for the evening of Wednesday, August 8.
Pearl Jam has partnered with over 80 local restaurants, food trucks, coffee shops, sweet shops, breweries and bars to raise funds to help fight homelessness in King County. Participating establishments will donate 10-20% of their profits from August 8th to Pearl Jam's shows.
Participating establishments include Bar Ferdinand, Barrio, Bastille, Big Chickie, Caffe Ladro, Canlis, Copal, Fremont Brewing, Georgetown Brewing, Hitchcock, King’s Hardware, Lark, Lola, Loulay, Matt’s in the Market, Poquitos, Quality Athletics, Rachel’s Ginger Beer, Rumba, Salty’s on Alki, Scout, Terra Plata, Tractor Tavern, Whale Wins, Zeek’s Pizza and many, many more.

God bless rock and roll!
