Not a day goes by that we here at HOH do not get an email blasted by one Montana politician or another.
We must admit having Jeff Ament pop up in our inbox saved the latest missive from automatic deletion.
For those who don’t live and die by grunge, Ament is the bassist and one of the founding members of Pearl Jam. Here he is doing a little dramatic reading in the 1992 flick “Singles”:
He is also tight with Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) — which is why the rock god has helped create a custom concert experience for campaign donors.
The winner of the “Best Seats in the World” contest will be lavished with: access to two La-Z-Boy style recliners, parked stage right during the band’s upcoming concert (Sept. 30) in Missoula, its only non-festival show this year; backstage passes to mingle with lead singer Eddie Vedder, guitarist Stone Gossard (also in the “Singles” clip) and the rest of the PJ crew; a pre-show dinner with Ament and Tester; and round-trip transportation to and from the show from anywhere in the U.S. The approximate retail value of the entire affair: $3,400.
Tester would, of course, love for folks to dig deep for a chance to enter, but no purchase is required.
