20 Springsteen shows

Lori made me a shirt to celebrate at Nats Park this week. The show was great. Three hours and forty-five minutes with terrific sound and a bunch of songs I’ve never been able to hear live before. New York City Serenade was amazing. Summertime Blues, Secret Garden, American Skin, a ferocious Because the Night, Lost in the Flood, Kitty’s Back, Trapped, I’m on Fire, and on and on and on.

  1. Trapped–very jealous. I am sure you read the Post review. Thy mention Because the Night and call it a cover. Can one cover a song they wrote?

  2. Lori spotted that too! And the writer got the length wrong by an hour. Commenters pointed out both errors, but it doesn’t appear anyone is reading them or the writer had a Twitter account.
