Austin, Texas has become one of the premiere destinations for bands around the world, as evidenced by the annual South by Southwest event in the spring and the recent success of the Austin City Limits Music Festival in the fall. This year will be no different as the lineup for the annual Austin City Limits Festival has been revealed with Pearl Jam among the headliners.

It's been a banner year for Pearl Jam, who released the stellar new album 'Lightning Bolt' in October. Now, Loudwire, Noisecreep, Ultimate Classic Rock and Diffuser are teaming up to offer one lucky fan the chance to win a Pearl Jam branded skate deck.
Pearl Jam concerts are an event for most fans, but one fan in particular got a night he'll never forget during a show in Spokane, Wash. This past Saturday (Nov. 30), Eddie Vedder noticed a fan in the audience holding up a sign saying that he would let the band shave his dreadlocks if they played his request.
Let’s face it, Matt Cameron is one busy man. As drummer for two rock juggernauts – both Pearl Jam and Soundgarden – there was bound to be some overlap in their touring schedules. With the careers of both bands currently flourishing, that time has come, and Cameron has revealed his plans for 2014.
Pearl Jam have injected some electricity into the rock world with their new album ‘Lightning Bolt,’ which dropped on Oct. 15. The disc follows up 2009’s ‘Backspacer’ with 12 new songs including the first single ‘Mind Your Manners' serving as Pearl Jam's triumphant return. In celebration of the new album, Loudwire, Noisecreep, Diffuser.fm and Ultimate Classic Rock have teamed up to give away an awesome Pearl Jam prize pack.
With their new disc ‘Lightning Bolt’ due out tomorrow (Oct. 15), NBC’s ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ will celebrate Pearl Jam next week (Oct. 21-25) with various musical guests digging into the extensive Pearl Jam catalog and performing songs in honor of the band. In addition, the week will culminate with Pearl Jam performing back-to-back nights on the show.
