Texas Flood: New/Corrected 1991 Info, Ticket Scans added

by John Reynolds on October 23, 2009

A few weeks ago, Tammy Cooper went to the Austin City Limits Festival on October 4. A day later she was reading reviews of the show on the Austin City Limits blog and saw a link to our review. A few minutes later, Tammy – a first-time visitor to TwoFeetThick.com – contacted us with great information about Pearl Jam’s Austin shows in 1991!

Tammy’s contributions sparked a flurry of interest in dates from that era, so we tackled a few more dates. Here’s all the details:

  • October 9, 1991 – The Backroom, Austin, TX - previously the venue was unknown, but Tammy has confirmed it as “The Backroom”. She reports there were approximately 40 people there and the admission was $5. Yes, $5. Need some wrinkle-cream to go along with that grimace?Now knowing the venue helps us complete the full picture on another article we wrote three years ago when we discovered the October 1991 tour dates on an “I Love You” Promo CD. The Austin, TX date was the only unknown venue at the time.
  • December 8, The Coliseum, Austin, TX – We originally had this date incorrectly listed as December 10th. Odd because it says right on this three-show Kozik poster that the date was December 8th. But our new BFF Tammy sent us a Ticket Scan also showing December 10th.

    Tammy writes: “As you can see, the Austin show that you have listed for December 10, 1991 was actually December 8, 1991 according to my stub (the handwritten “Pearl Jam” and “Smashing Pumpkins” notations date back to ’91). Also, I don’t recall the set being a full 60 minutes since PJ opened the show.  At that show, my friend got backstage and got my shirt signed by Ed (he wrote in the rest of the song titles).  Although I’ve never worn or washed it, the Sharpie has faded over the years and is barely there anymore.”

  • December ??, 1991 – The Vatican, Houston, TX – We previously listed this show as December 8, but that’s the date Austin show. The CC notes go back to 5H so we don’t have the source, and they’re a little vague. Could it be December 9? or December 10? Although it does seem odd to go from Houston on the 7th to Austin on the 8th and back to Houston, the cities are not that far apart. Were you there? Let us know!
