Big week for Pearl Jam. First they released "Dance of the Clairvoyants", our funky first taste of their new album Gigaton. Then tickets JUST went on sale for the band's return to Madison Square Garden, and based on the fact that there were 2000+ people ahead of me in the queue when I just tried to buy some, fans are hyped. PLUS you can register for RADIO.com's Road Trip with Pearl Jam right now: see them perform in five different cities, including New York. Register here: it's a national contest, thanks to our friends at Republic Records.

I've been listening to the new track a LOT this week, but since it's Friday, I wanted to show some love to an album I was obsessed with as a teenage Christine - to the point where I brought the CD booklet to school to try and decipher all the glorious weirdness in it. Memories. The album is 1994's Vitalogy, the FBF track is "Spin the Black Circle", and bonus: it's a live performance from 2003 at the Garden. Enjoy!
