The Boss, The River and The E Street Band

Bruce Springsteen has announced an intriguing new tour kicking off this Winter in Pittsburgh. Two things that make this one special are the fact that this will be a full E Street Band affair, and that the tour is titled The River Tour.

Unfortunately, it’s not yet clear whether that means Springsteen will be playing the double album in its entirety. We can only hope so, as that album is his best and one of the Top 25 ever, according to our own Cretin (read the article here). My guess is that we hear a lot of the music plus a copious amount of outtakes as Springsteen supports The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, which is a 50 song reissue of the 1980 masterpiece.

Kink Music Festival Delivers

More tattoos and piercings than I’ve ever seen in one place I my life, brightly decorated hair and mind-numbing body suspensions provided just a taste of the eclectic vibe at Kinkfest.  Those colorful experiences, coupled with a beautiful backdrop of pristine November weather, set-up the perfect environment for my first visit. There was also a palpable, positive vibe, in an environment where everyone was in their own element being whoever the hell they wanted to be. Oh, and then there was the eleven hours of killer rock ‘n roll – welcome to the 2015 incarnation of The Kink Music Festival.
