Somewhere in the Swamps of Jersey

Well, actually, Carnegie Hall.

Hopefully, there's a professional video of last April's Bruce Springsteen Tribute Concert somewhere, but in the meantime enjoy this from-the-audience clip of Bruce and company doing "Rosalita".

The goofy looking guy who sings the first verse is, of course, Craig Finn of The Hold Steady. For those of you coming in late, Finn is a fellow whose admiration for Bruce probably surpasses even mine at the peak of my late 70s Springsteen-mania.

Setting aside for a moment the fact that the aforementioned Hold Steady are the first band I've connected with on a gut emotional level in what seems like ages, I have just one question:

How in hell were Finn and the Boss able to share a stage without shattering the space/time continuum?

Nothing funnier than white people trying to clap in time.
