Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready Reps Stereo Embers on Late Night
Rocker dons t-shirt of power pop foursome while jamming with Stephen Colbert
By Seattle Mag September 24, 2015
Pearl Jam played the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert show last night and lead guitarist, Mike McCready, was spotted wearing the band t-shirt of local power-pop group, Stereo Embers. Later that night, McCready tweeted this picture out of himself and Colbert backstage.
The band played a Neil Young cover, “Rockin In The Free World,” with the talk show host hamming it up.
Stereo Embers, who have a record release show Friday night at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard, are one of the bands McCready recently signed to his new vinyl-only record label, HockeyTalkter Records. It’s a feather in the cap for the local band and both a savvy and kind move by the world famous rocker.
