RNDM’s new video for “Walking Through New York” makes me nostalgic for a time when the subway tunnels weren’t flooded with four feet of water…


RNDM, the new side project of Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, Joseph Arthur, and Richard Stuverud, released its debut effort Acts today. Along with that comes the video for “Walking Through New York,” which is fairly literal. The song itself is jam-like, with falsetto vocals and a relaxed pace. Check it out!

New Pearl Jam-Themed ‘Hamlet’ Production Premieres Off-Broadway

At long last, someone had the ingenious idea to combine two of my all-time favorite things in the world: William Shakespeare’s Hamlet and the music of Pearl Jam. I promise it makes more sense than you might think. If you’re in New York City this week and looking for something interesting to check out, I’d adamantly suggest checking out A King Of Infinite Space, a new “rock and roll adaptation” of Hamlet that just premiered at the HERE production house last night.

Get the details and ticket info here…
