The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, lets face it, the man rocks.

So you cry because you weren’t in Asbury Park last night, but don’t worry, baby – we have videos! Who am I kidding? They’ll just make you weep louder. Nonetheless, check out some great footage of Springsteen appearing at Light of Day 14 at the Paramount Theatre last night. This marks his 10th appearance supporting founder Bob Benjamin and the quest to cure Parkinson’s Disease. Sounds like it was one hell of a night, with highlights including the world premiere of “Frankie Fell in Love” off the brand new High Hopes, which sounded great in its first time out with the Houserockers, but with a little polish and E Street magic is sure to be a killer staple in the tour to come (it’s coming, right?), and the third-ever performance of “Hearts of Stone,” featuring the great Ed Manion.
And remember, just because you weren’t in the room doesn’t mean it’s too late to donate to a great cause. Visit the Light of Day website for more info.
