Philly covers the Boss for his 60th

My friends over at WXPN in Philly are always in the process of doing something cool. Case in point — this week they’ve assembled 29 of their best local artists to cover Bruce Springsteen in honor of his SIXTIETH (yes) birthday tomorrow.

There’s a sold-out tribute show tomorrow night in Philly. Springsteen covers always sound good, yeah?

  • To the one man who changed my life forever, Happy 60 Bruce! Tnx for everything!

  • Still no mention of PJ. Way to hold your ground. Whether it is passive aggressive and whether it is intentional or not, I’m with you. I’m a die hard PJ fan, and actually began reading your blog because of it. Thanks for all the great music I’ve acquired since.

  • I saw PJ for 2 nights in Seattle and they were fantastic. I also love your blog Heather & have discovered so many great bands through your site. I hope one day this animosity between both parties can be resolved. Thanks for the music.

  • I was on WXPN when I was in the States! Saw a free Sondre Lerche lunchtime concert. We could do with some stations like that over here.

    I did see this was coming up, shame I couldn’t have timed my trip better ;)

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
