HockeyTalkter Records and Powerhouse Books are releasing “Of Potato Heads and Polaroids: My Life Inside and Out of Pearl Jam” by Mike McCready on May 30th.

Mike also trained his lens from the stage at countless Pearl Jam concerts and photographed legions of fans.

FREE CONCERT ON THE ROOF OF PIKE PLACE MARKET
Sunday, August 23, 2015
Music lovers will soon be able to enjoy year-round, exclusive live performances both inside and outdoors at KEXP’s New Home at Seattle Center — but we’re still building it. In anticipation of the extraordinary shows to come in the New Home, on Sunday, August 23 at 7:00 p.m., KEXP hosts RAW POWER KEXP, a one-of-a-kind FREE concert at another local landmark: Pike Place Market.
RAW POWER KEXP features four Seattle music icons — Mike McCready (Pearl Jam, Mad Season), Duff McKagan (Guns n’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees, Tuatara), and Mark Arm (Mudhoney) — performing their favorite songs by punk pioneers Iggy and the Stooges on the Pike Place Market rooftop. The RAW POWER band will play directly underneath the iconic Pike Place Market sign (near the corner of 1st Ave and Pike St). The streets around the market will be closed that evening to accommodate fans. This concert is free and open to the public.
