Eddie Vedder’s deep-throated yowl has been parroted by some of the very worst modern music has to offer, from odious “American Idol” contestants to chest-beating Christian rockers. Don’t hold it against him. Vedder himself has denounced the stage-diving, jock-rock posturing of Pearl Jam’s early days and, especially during his solo shows, he falls back on subdued, American folk-rock. He’s spread his infrequent solo material across the soundtracks to several Sean Penn films, most notably 2007’s Into The Wild, which is the closest Vedder has come to a true solo album. Tonight Vedder plays a sold-out 7:30 p.m. show at the Riverside Theater.

Poll

A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
