Pearl Jam Sets the Stage to Vote for Change

Remember Vote for Change?  Back in 2004, Pearl Jam teamed up with Bruce Springsteen, R.E.M., Death Cab for Cutie, The Dixie Chicks, and other musicians to promote voter registration in swing states all across the country.  Well, directors Coan Nichols and Rick Charnoski followed Pearl Jam on their 8-city tour with a Super 8 camera, and they're releasing this incredible behind-the-scenes documentary now, just in time for election day.  

It's always thrilling to see artists who are outspoken about their political beliefs, especially when it's a band you're a fan of or an issue that's important to you.  I had the pleasure to sit down with Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard as the band kicked off the Vote for Change tour in Reading, PA, and what Gossard had to say then about activism and the urgent need for bipartisanship seems just as pertinent today.  So go to and sign up for a house party to watch Vote for Change? on November 3.
