In The Present Tense is back to doing what we love! Sharing some live Pearl Jam. Hopefully you're all caught up on you downloads and ready for more. Starting it off right where we left off with a 1994 bootleg update. Now available in both FLAC and MP3 in the 1994 section:
03/17/94 - Elliot Hall: Purdue University: West Lafayette, IN [120m]
support act: Grant Lee Buffalo
set: Wash, Animal, Go, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Glorified G, Black, Blood, Dissident, State of Love and Trust, Even Flow, Tremor Christ, Daughter/(Improv), Alive, Rearviewmirror, Not for You, Garden, Leash, Porch
enc: Once, Rockin' in the Free World, Indifference
notes: PJ insisted on a large quantity of these tickets going to Purdue University students and TM only had approximately 1,000 for sale. With the show beginning late due to a bomb scare, PJ arrives on stage announcing that everyone is free to leave and get a refund. Ed is wearing war paint up and down his legs and his eyes are blackened like a raccoon. The 'Daughter' tag is the 'You're in My Body' improv. Halfway through the show, Ed says something like, "I don't know if you guys are feeling this, but we certainly are. Musically, this might be the best show we have ever played. Thank you." He also gives a speech about 'Dissident' - saying that date rape is terrible and explaining that a woman's word is sacred and the no means no and that's what a "holy no" is. An unbelievable show with great crowd interaction, nearly getting out of control when a huge group of people charge one of the aisles during 'RitFW.'
