September 13, 1992 Irvine Meadows – Irvine, CA

Show Notes

Unusually, ‘Baba O’Riley’ opens this set. Mike is clad in a plaid skirt. ‘Sonic Reducer’ is introduced as “… a song about shooting up in the pit.” He wisecracks, “So, whattaya think? No Pearl Jam songs today” leading to ‘Even Flow.’ A few ‘Hard to Imagine’ riffs are played before ‘Alive’ with lyrics about “somebody told me … one night in New Orleans …” Later Ed says, “You’d all better vote to keep it a fuckin’ free world,” and “I hate to inform you boys but I’ve seen quite a few of these and this ain’t no pit.” He asks, “Is there anybody else left back there to play? Oh, there’s someone” and Chris Cornell joins PJ for ‘Hunger Strike’ and ‘Reach Down.’ Matt Cameron replaced Dave on drums. This is the only (in addition to the 8/14/92 Lake Fairfax show perhaps), impromptu Temple of the Dog reunion with all members of both PJ and Soundgarden present.

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.
