Anyone here like Brad at all? Easy to write off as a Pearl Jam side project, but much better than the assumption that entails. Played their first ever UK gig last night at Islington Academy and were better than I expected (though they do occassionally stray into dad rock). The crowd were an absolute bunch of bell-ends though, never seen so many filming mobiles, finger pointing and inappropriately timed shouting (i.e. quiet moments of a song). The moments with Shawn Smith at the piano alone were divine.
Upon My Shoulders was a particular highlight.
