    Pearl Jam, until 10/31: Eighteen years after the release of their breakthrough album Ten, Pearl Jam is on the road again promoting their latest LP, Backspacer. The new album has been acclaimed as their best since their debut, and Eddie's sure to provide the band's usual frenetic angst.

    Pearl Jam front-man Eddie Vedder will making a stop at Oakland's Paramount Theater on July 11th to promote his latest record - an album of ukulele music, called "Ukulele Songs."

    Vedder's been known to play a few songs here and there on the ol' uke, so we'll have to see how an entire album sounds when it comes out on May 31st.

    It's a bit of stray from the angsty "Even Flow" days, but I'm sure we're not quite "Tip Toeing Through the Tulips" just yet. (Although, I might be willing to shell out a couple bucks to see Eddie Vedder belt out a few songs in that Tiny Tim voice.)

    Tickets go on sale for the Oakland stop on April 1st via Ticketmaster.

    Glen Hansard of Swell Season will be touring with Vedder.
