Episode 278: Copenhagen, DEN – 7/5/2022

About the Episode

Episode Release Date: April 3rd, 2024

Episode Guests: Javier Hervas

Let’s look back to a Pearl Jam show that was played less than two years ago in Copenhagen, Denmark. Every time the band makes their way through there, its with heavy hearts attributing back to the 2000 tragedy at the Roskilde Festival where nine people lost their lives. During the initial 2020 run scheduled before Covid happened, the date that they were set to play Copenhagen was on June 29th, just a day short of the 20th anniversary of that day. The band wear their hearts on their sleeves for an emotionally powerful version of Love Boat Captain where Ed expresses his sorrow and explains how it changed the band moving forward.

This week we have an interview with Joshua and Yonat Goldberg, a father and daughter who experienced their first Pearl Jam show on this night. We’ll get to hear their background of how they discovered the band and bonded over them before deciding to take a visit to Denmark to see them. It’s a great story for anyone who has passed music down to their children in hopes to get them to feel the same impact that they experienced at a young age.

Outside of Love Boat Captain, we’ll focus in on performances of Lukin, Daughter, Retrograde and Never Destination, While Javier will join us to discuss the 2022 reemergence of Garden, and a little bassy Stone Gossard on Dance of the Clairvoyants.
