Pearl Jam has partnered with Montana Democratic Senator Jon Tester for a concert giveaway. Tester will raffle off a prize of two on-stage reclining seats to Pearl Jam's September 30th show in Missoula. The winnings also include a dinner with Tester and Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament (a Montana native and long-time friend of the Tester family), VIP passes and round-trip travel and hotel accommodations.

"Jon is the real deal. He's a hardworking Montana farmer who has never forgotten who he works for or where he comes from," said Ament. "He's one of us, a rare gem who truly represents Montanans in D.C. I look forward to joining folks from across Montana in support of Jon to reelect him in November."

Any supporter who donates to Tester on his official website will be automatically entered into the raffle. Pearl Jam is also set to play the Jay-Z curated Made in America festival this Labor Day weekend.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
