    Pearl Jam Throws Rockin' 20th Birthday Party

    It may not be the coolest move to throw your own birthday party, but at least you get the celebration you want. The 20-year tributes to Nirvana's Nevermind have been an unregulated free-for-all ranging from dignified (Krist Novoselic's all-star bash, SPIN's cover-songs tribute) to decidedly un- (Chris Brown, "Smells Like Teen Spirit," 'nuff said). Pearl Jam on the other hand, arestill together, and thus capable of controlling the agenda for the 20th birthday of their watershed 1991 record, Ten. If it's surprising that they celebrated 2,000 miles away from Seattle - in Alpine Valley, WI - know that Pearl Jam long ago evolved past their original grunge label to become prefix-less, suffix-less Rock, a sound without geography.
