If you have a friend in Seattle call them and tell them to go pick you up something! Pearl Jam is opening a pop up shop for one day only, this Satruday from noon to 5pm, at the Showbox Market.
What will be for sale? The Pearl Jam Patagonia Backpack, a vinly pressing of their 2003 show at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, the deluxe editions on DVD and Blu-Ray of Pearl Jam Twenty, and lots of special edition records from their catalogue.
Plus, there's a raffle happening on Saturday for a bass guitar signed by the boys. That would be awesome to own!
Why can't this travel around the country? They did a pop-up store in New York City for the release of Lightning Bolt and now in Seattle, what about the rest of us?
Tom DeLonge couldn't be busier right now. The new children's book The Lonely Astronaut on Christmas Eve. Making music with Blink 182 and Angels & Airwaves. His production company. Searching for mythical creatures. But he isn't too busy to take a few minutes to talk on the phone, and we discussed all of that and more.
About hearing the new Blink 182 music: "It would have to be later in the year. We're still trying to figure out how all of us can meet up in the same spot and where that's going to be, because we have a guy in London, a guy north of Los Angeles and myself in San Diego. But I think once we actually figure out that location things will move fairly quickly. Everyone's excited, the fans are excited, I'm expecting great things!"
Listen to our conversation:
Tom's new book is called The Lonely Astronaut on Christmas Eve and there's a charity auction going on. All of the money is going to benefit Rady Children's Hospital with sales and the auction. Click here to get the The Lonely Astronaut on Christmas Eve.
