In this day and age when rock stars “partner” with big corporations, you wouldn’t expect MLB to be left out, would you? Of course not. 48 songs from 90s mega-stars Pearl Jam will “soundtrack” (yes they actually use this word as a verb on their website) the 2013 World Series. There was a time when Pearl Jam was one of only a handful of touring artists that could guarantee to sell out an arena. The band is on tour again and it makes me wonder who benefits more from this partnership — MLB or Pearl Jam?
Closer to home, local venues are changing their live music schedules knowing that many — if not most of their customers will want to watch the World Series, which begins tonight. Minglewood Tavern cancelled live music for tonight and tomorrow.
Whether or not you plan to watch the World Series, you can get a complete listing of local live music with up-to-the minute schedule changes here.
