Pearl Jam Details ‘Instant Classic’ Bootleg Series; Watch Them “Kick Out The Jams” (Video)

    Pearl Jam is refreshingly honest when it comes to their live shows, oftentimes encouraging fans to record their sets with whatever they like. In the past, the band has also offered up its own “professional” bootlegs, and the group looks set to continue that trend with “Instant Classic.” The bootleg series will collect current shows that the band members believe are worthy “for the books,” and they’re kicking off the series with their performance from Missoula, MT from Sep. 30 of this year.

    Pearl Jam is offering the Missoula show for download for $4.99 via their website, but it’s for a limited time only. All proceeds between now and Nov. 13 will go towards The Povorello Center in Missoula. After Nov. 13, the price will bump back up to its usual amount of $9.99. The bootlegs are available as 256 kbit/s mp3s.
