A Pearl Jam fan? Listening parties for the new album Dark Matter are happening this Sunday.

Pearl Jam is ramping up for the release of Dark Matter, their 12th album, next Friday (April 19). I’ve heard the record (it’s great!) and had a chance to talk to Jeff Ament about it (more details TBA). If you want to get the jump on things, four cities are hosting listening parties this Sunday (April 14).

There’s also a one-night-only theatrical event on April 16. Jeff told me that attendees will hear the album twice, once in the dark and once with visualizers based on the album’s artwork. And as far as he knew, the event will be held in theatres with superb surround-sound systems. Canadians can go here for info and tickets.
