Best Live Show In The Past Year

Pearl Jam, September 22 at the Halifax Metro Centre

It’s been a decade since Pearl Jam was in its prime, but that didn’t stop Halifax showgoers from buying all the tickets in a matter of hours. “It proved to me that they’re still a really great band,” says Mike D’Eon, who attended the show even though he doesn’t follow the band as much as he used to. “They were full-intensity—Vedder was climbing around everywhere and screaming a lot more than you’ll see on their DVDs. It was almost like the way they were way back in the Seattle days.”

Runners-up: (tie) Special Noise/Japanther/Gilbert Switzer at Halifax Pop Explosion / Buck 65 at The Marquee Club
