#Repost from @pearljam, followed by me nattering for a bit, so please stick around: "12 years ago today, #PearlJam performed a special pre-tour show at the Gorge Amphitheatre, playing an acoustic and electric set of thirty-six songs over three hours." 12 years ago today, I was at this show. But what they fail to mention was that a great American city was drowning in that moment.
Today, I drove up to Mt. Hood in a rental car with XM, listening to PJ Radio playing this bootleg... and thinking about the OTHER great American city that has just drowned: my hometown.
I've listened to this particular show a lot over the years, and it's brought me comfort in a lot of strange times. But today is the first day I found myself yearning to go back, pick things up after the first city drowned, try again, and see if we can't all do a little better.
