The 600 Club

So everyone knows about this:

Sammy Sosa hit his 600th career home run last night in Texas. Throw a rock and you'll hit a news article about it.

But there was another 600th milestone the other night that very few (if anyone) noticed.

In Madrid, on June 9, 2007, toward the end of their set, Pearl Jam played the song "Even Flow".

This performance marked the 600th performance of the song. They've since played it three times more. But this is the king of Pearl Jam songs, far ahead of the classic "Alive," which has been played 78 times less.

Both songs premiered live, when the band was still called "Mookie Blaylock" on October 22, 1990 at the Off-Ramp Cafe in Seattle.

Just a little PJ trivia for you. More on "Even Flow" here.

(A little later....of course then they skip playing "Even Flow" at their show in London on 6/18 and tonight's show in Dusseldorf.....ooh! an excuse to show tonight's poster!)

I don't know what's cooler, the performance, how awesome this person's seats were, or what Eddie gives to the fan at the end of "Rats":
