Music History

Watch the very first Pearl Jam show EVER

Come back with me to October 22, 1990, when a new band called Mookie Blaylock played their very first show. The gig was seen by 299 people at the Off Ramp Cafe in Seattle.

They’d be called “Mookie Blaylock” for a little while longer. When their namesake, a guard for the New Jersey Nets (jersey #10), brought in his lawyers, the group changed their name to Pearl Jam.
