Following up on my last post “The Gaslight Anthem and Cover Songs…”
Here’s Grace Potter and the Nocturnals (who are one of the best rock acts touring right now), giving a masters class in covering the Boss, and treating your audience with respect.
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals – Atlantic City (YouTube)
I can’t wait to see them perform with the Allman Brothers in September.
In other news, it seems that The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon doesn’t mind doing a Bruce cover (or at least when it’s a high-profile on-stage collaboration with Rise Against, Wayne Kramer and Tom Morello). No hard feelings here. It’s a badass performance. Raw, passionate vocals, and screaming guitars.

Thanks to Mark for the tipping me on the Rise Against track.
