    Hoboken has Maxwell's. And Yo La Tengo. There's so much win there.

    For everyone that hates Springsteen but loves Arcade Fire...
    Can't wait to see him in Oakland next week!

    October 14 / Ottawa, ON / Scotiabank Place
    Notes: Four more tour premieres tonight, including "Tougher Than the Rest" (an audible, in the "Heartbreak"/"Brilliant" slot on the setlist) and "Backstreets." But when the spot-on debut of "Backstreets" isn't the big story of the night, you know something unusual happened. Yep, in the six-song encore, Bruce and the E Streeters were joined by members of Arcade Fire, husband-and-wife band co-founders Win Butler and Régine Chassagne. First up was "State Trooper," a song Arcade Fire has been known to cover, and which the E Street Band hasn't played live since the Born in the U.S.A. tour. After that, they all went into "Keep the Car Running," a hard-hitting track from Arcade Fire's magnificent Neon Bible. [Stream the album version here.] We're always hoping for more covers in the set, any chance this one stays in? No? Well, the chances weren't good that it'd get played in the first place, either... so we can dream. In any case, quite a curveball in the indie band's homeland, and a cross-generational mingling of talent on par with the R.E.M. team-up of 2004. Update: Actually, upon reflection, AF's appearance has more in common with Eddie Vedder's, especially in terms of bestowing the ultimate honor in a guest spot: The E Street Band learns your song, and you peform it with them. Dig the video at Pitchfork.com.

    Setlist:
    Radio Nowhere
    The Ties That Bind
    Lonesome Day
    Gypsy Biker
    Magic
    Reason to Believe
    Adam Raised a Cain
    She's the One
    Livin' in the Future
    The Promised Land
    Tougher Than the Rest
    Backstreets
    Darlington County
    Devil's Arcade
    The Rising
    Last to Die
    Long Walk Home
    Badlands
    * * *
    Girls in Their Summer Clothes
    State Trooper
    Keep the Car Running
    Born to Run
    Dancing in the Dark
    American Land

    There comes a time
    When the rain begins to fall
    And the worms come out of the ground.
    There are people walking
    Oh, it's time to watch your step
    Or your feet will make a squishy sound.

    We are the worms
    Out on the sidewalk.
    We are the ones who make a squishy mess
    So watch where you walk.
    It's a chance we're taking
    Leaving our homes underground
    Though it's true we'll get a better tan,
    Just you and me.

    When we're laying 'round
    Keep your eye out on the street.
    If you don't look out,
    You'll have worms under your feet.
    We realize
    Oh, that the sun is gonna come
    And we'll shrivel up like beef jerky from the heat.

    We are the worms
    Out on the pavement.
    And when we hear a squish, we look around
    To see where cousin Dave went.
    It's a stance we're taking
    'Cause worms are people too
    And we sure don't want a better look
    At your big shoe.

    Springsteen hatred makes little sense to me. Indifference or a feeling of over-hype, I understand. But "***?" or Bruce Fucking Springsteen". If you're not familiar with The River, Nebraska, or Darkness on the Edge of Town or his live shows...then you're disqualified to make that remark. And, if you have and still think that, then you're in need of a soul transplant.

    Not a huge fan of Springsteen, but I respect the guy, and seeing the three of them on stage together was cool. And at least Springsteen's take on Keep The Car Running didn't have any long stretches where he had to hum the words that he'd forgotten, Dave Fucking Grohl.

    The holy grail of unreleased Springsteen tracks will be released this fall along with live footage and a new doc accompanying the remastered Darkness on the Edge of Town.
