Green Up and Get Rocked by Stone Gossard

A Tree Grows in Boston

Kicking off Tomorrow in Boston... 'Dig It' is a multi-city nature initiative reaching the people through art and music. (Future dates: New York on Oct. 4th, Los Angeles on Oct. 11 and San Francisco on Oct. 18th.)

On Wednesday, Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard will take the lead - working with Mayor Tom Menino, corporate sponsors, and local volunteers to plant trees right here in Mattapan. Volunteers who take part will receive a free pass to see Gossard, one of America's most talented guitarists, jam out tommorrow night at the Wilbur theater.

Tomorrow: Help Out Nature - Get Free Tickets

For the daytime community greening events, corporate sponsor Timberland will partner with American Forests, the non-profit organization focused on planting trees for environmental restoration. Timberland and American Forests will enlist approximately 200-300 volunteers to help plant trees in each city with the aid of local partners. In Boston, EarthWorks volunteers will assist in this project.


Following the tree planting service Stone Gossard (Pearl Jam) will perform an exclusive ‘Dig It’ concert at the Wilbur in Boston tomorrow night with special guests that include The Hank Khoir and Vince Mira. "I am excited about the opportunity to not only share my new music with all the hardworking ‘Dig It’ volunteers, but to see first-hand what Timberland and American Forests can achieve in each of these cities," said Stone Gossard. "We are all going to roll-up our sleeves to make a difference, and a have a great time doing it."

Born and raised in Seattle, Gossard has played in Pearl Jam, Temple of the Dog, Green River, Mother Love Bone, the Ducky Boys and now as a solo musician. Not many people realize that eight of the eleven tracks on Pearl Jam's seminal debut Ten were musically penned by Gossard, including "Alive", "Even Flow", and "Black". Now, that's a pedigree!
