The idea of an Eddie Vedder Ukulele concert seemed intriguing. I still had to be persuaded into actually attending. I'm glad I did. I love Rock n Roll history and Eddie brought it and on a few different levels this past Friday night. He played a song that he wrote on the way to the gig. That is Rock n Roll history. Austin did not get that one nor Dallas. Of course it helps if the historical moment is a good one and indeed "5:55 Sunset Drive" was a highlight. The song inspired by a bit of San Antonio gridlock at sunset, just north of town. Vedder also made reference to his home state of Washington legalizing marijuana with a tale of his plans upon the tours completion. But when he brought a soldier from the crowd to the stage that was a real spine tingling Rock n Roll and USA moment. This show was full of them, much to the delight of the sold out crowd at the Lila Cockrell Theater. He played some Pearl Jam and he hit his solo library, it was a sing along campfire kinda night. The ironic "Last Kiss" was the crowd favorite, "Gone" was mine. At one point in the show he got word that his(and Pearl Jam's) sound guy had just become a father. So, the next song was dedicated to a 15 minute old new person(Lucy Pearl). A lot of cool moments musically and during the in between song banter. A few songs on ukulele, few on acoustic guitar, one on organ, few on electric, and even one acapella(and without amplification) with show opener Glen Hassard. I still have to go back though to the song he wrote while being stuck in traffic("Sunset Drive"). He is snarled in a traffic jam, running late, and then looks out the back of his tour bus and sees a gorgeous Texas sunset. A few short hours later, he is singing all about it. That very night. That is Rock n Roll history. Maybe the song will be released. Probably not. You had to be there. That is Rock n Roll history. That is ukulele Rock n Roll history.
