Green River Are Back... For One Night Only!

Stone Gossard says rumors his pre-Pearl Jam band Green River will reunite in the summer of 2008 for a Sub Pop 20th anniversary concert are indeed true!

"Pearl Jam has toured with Mudhoney, so we played with [former Green River members] Mark [Arm] and Steve [Turner]," he reports. "But we haven't played with Alex [Vincent] and Bruce [Fairweather] in quite a while. They're both excited about it, from everything I've heard."

And as for Pearl Jam, the group is taking a break following a summer European tour.

A live DVD filmed by photographer Danny Clinch, "Immagine in Cornice," was released last week. "We're in that period of time where we actually allow ourselves to not know what's going to happen next, which is great," Gossard says.

Brad Announce Comeback Shows

Brad will come back together for a special evening in New York City.

A Celebration of Woody and Marjorie Guthrie To Benefit Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA) will feature Brad and Billy Bragg and is hosted by Tim Robbins, with some very special guests.

Wednesday, October 17, 2007 at 7pm at the intimate Webster Hall 125 E 11th Street.

Ten Club members are invited to take part in the private pre-sale for this event going on now. Click here for tickets! The special pre-sale password is: HDSA

The event hits particularly close to home for Brad/Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard, whose wife's mother, brother and grandfather have suffered with Huntington's. Woody Guthrie is the most prominent name associated with the disease, a rare neurological disorder that is somewhat akin to Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis.

There is no cure for Huntington's, but symptoms can be managed with medication.

"There are so many people in the HD community that don't have the care they need," Gossard told "We wanted to support both the care that people get for HD through local chapters and any scientific breakthroughs that may be on the horizon."

While in New York, Brad will play a separate headlining show on Oct. 16 at the Highline Ballroom.

Gossard has also finished tweaking a batch of material the band recorded in 2004 but is just now ready to release, comprising the songs "Every Whisper," "Rush Hour," "No Regrets," "Price of Love," "One Love Remains," "Low," "Bless Me Father," "Believe in Yourself," "Oh Goodness," "Luxury Car" and "Holiday."

In addition, the band has acquired the rights to its first two albums for Epic, plus albums from connected groups such as Satchel and Malkfunksun, and is hoping to reissue the projects at some point in the future. "We're trying to figure out how to play a little bit more often," Gossard says. "We want to keep the band alive."
