It’s already been 20 years since our lovable slacker came out with “Loser”. Since then, we’ve anticipated his gift for ad-lib and re-invention with each album. Good article on Beck’s career arc in Grantland. We’ve been luck to have wonderful photos of Beck throughout his career by Martyn Goodacre, Piper Ferguson and Anna Webber.

To celebrate its 20 year anniversary this September, Pearl Jam is planning a Labor Day weekend festival at the Alpine Valley Music Theater in East Troy, WI. Pearl Jam will headline every night, along with a hand-picked line up that includes some of its favorite acts and friends such as The Strokes, Mudhoney, Queens Of The Stone Age and John Doe. For more information on the event, including a complete line up and pre-sale information, go here.
Along with the Labor Day festivities, deluxe re-releases of Vitalogy, VS., and of course Ten, will be available in September. The Cameron Crowe documentary, which is Crowe’s “love letter” to the band, will also be available and airing on PBS October 21st.
It’s a career worth celebrating, and Pearl Jam are doing it in an interesting, intimate way, something their devoted fans will surely appreciate.
