If you’re sticking around Boston for a few days after the conference, or attending any of our new post-conference sessions on Thursday the 16th - here’s a great concert opportunity for you. Singer, songwriter, activist, and perhaps most famously Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder, will be performing a solo set at Boston’s Wang Theatre on Thursday, June 16th at 7:30pm. Sure, he’s more widely known via his band – their album Ten is definitely in my top, uh, ten – but his solo performances get rave reviews, as fans love the intimate setting and Vedder’s ability to carry a room with his distinctive voice. And this time, he’s touring with a ukulele. You can find ticket info here.
Here’s the lead single from his new album, Ukulele Songs:
The 2011 NFPA Conference & Expo is sure to be a great time, and will be even more fun if you get out and explore its host city of Boston while here. We’ll keep providing events and activities as ideas for your time here in Boston during our annual meeting. Check back each week for a new one!
