EDDIE VEDDER, DAVE GROHL AND PAT SMEAR JOIN MIKE WATT ON STAGE AT THE TRIPLE DOOR

SSG Music
It’s understandable that someone like Mike Watt, former bassist of legendary punk band Minutemen, would have a bevy of celebrity musician friends. But his performance at the Triple Door last night was an unprecedented throwback to Seattle’s grunge years when Eddie Vedder (of Pearl Jam), Dave Grohl (of Foo Fighters and Nirvana), and Pat Smear (also of Foo Fighters and Nirvana) joined Watt onstage for a 10 minute-long jam session. The stunt was a huge surprise for everyone, but it’s not the first time Watt has worked with some of these grunge superstars. Back in the mid-nineties, he recruited Vedder and Grohl to be his touring band after the release of his first solo album, Ball-Hog or Tugboat? Check the video below to see Watt rock out with Grohl on drums, Smear on guitar, and Vedder on vocals and guitar.

Golden Ear Awards are shout out to jazz community

earshot1Seattle Times:
The first Golden Ear/Seattle Jazz Awards were presented in 1990 in a setting far from ostentatious. Singer Ernestine Anderson was among four artists inducted that year into the freshly created “Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame” before a small crowd that had gathered in the upstairs bar of Lofurno’s jazz club, across from the railroad tracks at Interbay. The venues have changed over the years, from Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley, to Experience Music Project, to the New Orleans Creole Restaurant, to the Triple Door, where tonight at 7, Earshot Jazz will present its annual jazz awards for the 19th consecutive year. Polished though the surroundings might be, the sense and scale of the 2008 Golden Ear awards remain much the same. It is a chance to visit with old friends and to measure progress, a night of personal stocktaking and private celebration.
