May 7, 1998 ARO.space – Seattle, WA

Show Notes

PJ makes their first full public appearance with Matt Cameron at this surprise show at the club formerly known as Moe’s (site of the Mirror Ball release party and private Neil Jam show in 1995). The band is visibly nervous until ‘Habit,’ at which point they totally kick in, laughing amongst themselves, making jokes. ‘MFC’ and ‘Habit’ are total standouts, as well as Stone’s tambourine playing during ‘Leatherman’ and Eddie’s hilarious backing vocals during ‘Mankind.’ The band leaves the stage and then Matt, Jeff and Ed return, Ed tells us a little story, displaying a Michael Jordan bong and a single. He tells us he bought the single for 99 cents the day before and stayed up all night listening to, ‘Last Kiss,’ a 50s gothic romance that was re-released and popular during the early 70s, and then proceeds to serenade us with a wonderful rendition of that song. Amazing show!
(FYI: The opening jam is none other than a shortened version of Pink Floyd’s ‘Interstellar Overdrive’

Audio 1

We offer all our concerts in FLAC format. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec and is used to compress sound clips without loss of quality. FLAC is often compared to MP3, only there is a loss of quality when converting to MP3. For the true audiophile, FLAC offers much better quality than MP3.
