Apparently, a bunch of my favorite bands covered Springsteen recently. These links have been sitting in my Google Reader waiting to be listened to for a while and I finally got around to it just now. Awesome.
- The Hold Steady – Atlantic City
- Tom Gabel (Against Me!) – Reason To Believe
- Ted Leo – Dancing In The Dark
- Brian Fallon (The Gaslight Anthem) – Backstreets
And on an unrelated note, a friend of mine, Mr. Brian Graber has recently started up a great podcast over at his blog, http://graber29.blogspot.com. The premise is basically that he is just documenting his first 100 days out of office since the economic meltdown hit him personally and he lost his early morning radio production gig. I think it’s an awesome idea and a hilarious way to keep himself busy while also paralleling (reverse paralleling?) current events. When I first saw he was doing it, I actually thought he was just doing something about the first 100 days in office for Obama which confused me since he’s not the most political dude in the world. Then I listened to it.
