Bootleg Of The Month: Pearl Jam at Bonnaroo

One actual positive benefit of the internet and contemporary technology is the sharing of live music recordings. A music fan can determine if their favorite band actually doesn't suck live, collect an audio memento of a show they attended or just obsessively collect shows of their favorite bands.

We can't tell you how many times we've been turned on to new artists from listening to and trading live shows. Plus, it's awesome to listen to band's fuck up, hear a group of wasted people sing off key and clap out of time near the microphones recording the show, and remember what it was like to be at that show a few weeks ago.

This month, HF recommends Pearl Jam live a Bonnaroo.

With no new album to support and making their first appearance at the festival, PJ dug deep into their catalog, playing rarities like set opener "Hard to Imagine", "Who You Are" and the never-performed-live-before-this-tour "All Night". A cover of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" brings the set to a roaring finale.
