Memories of inspiration: MoPop in Seattle was outstanding. Not only did we get to play in the SoundLab, but as members, we got to visit the Pearl Jam exhibit before its official opening. Wow! Big screens with live performances, concert tee-shirts, ephemera, handwritten song lyrics, guitars, clothing, a history of the band swarming in variegated lights. The above picture is a replica of their previous rehearsal space, replete with amps, mic, and Matt Cameron’s DRUM KIT. What a beauty.
