Pearl Jam Openers Announced

Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam will be getting some assistance in bringing the wrecking ball down on the Spectrum from a couple of stalwart punkish California rock bands.  Mike Ness and the well-tattooed members of Social Distortion will open for the Seattle grungers on Oct. 27 and 28, and Brett Gurewitz and thesaurus rockers Bad Religion provide support on Oct. 30 and 31. And in another laudable move, PJ will partner with a local independent music store in each city on its Backspacer tour. In Philadelphia, it'll be Main Street Music in Manayunk pushing product on the Spectrum concourse.  Above, Bad Religion, below, Social D. ask that you don't take them for granted.
