Ohana and Ohana Encore weekend was a long time in the making, but the shows are now in our rearviewmirror. There’s a lot for us to talk about, such as all of the new Gigaton songs that either debuted or tore the house down. In this episode we’ll react to everything that went down at both Ohana and Ohana Encore weekend and try to put our best analysis on how great these shows were. The Gigaton songs will be the most heavily featured, but we’ll also talk about some of the rarities tossed in there such as Sweet Lew and Let Me Sleep, a few of the special guests like Brandi Carlile who joined them, and some of the old songs that felt wonderful to hear again. All of the instant reaction jam packed into this episode recorded just 24 hours after the last show’s end!
Hey! a Pearl Jam show JUST happened for the first time in three years! Let’s react to it a little bit! So much to unwrap on this first night back from all the new Gigaton tracks to the old songs getting a new groove, Pearl Jam proved in the latter stages of their career post pandemic that they still got it! We’ll run down the entire setlist, not unlike a regular episode except a little more casual and less music to hear. Literally every topic under the sun is covered for this (I did forget to mention the tour bus on the beach, but shit happens). Even talk about a certain boss who caught the attention of many gossip hounds during this weekend. After you’re done hearing our thoughts, check out the Concertpedia entry for the show!
