It was another day full of music including Alberta Cross, Temper Trap, Punch Brothers to my new favorite band MyNameIsJohnMichael.
The night ended with an awesome set by one of my heroes Bruce Springsteen. This was a hot ticket and the only way in was via the SXSW lottery—and I won! Bruce rocked newer tracks but when he busted out BADLANDS and my all time favorite THUNDER ROAD my face nearly fell off.
This show was a music fans wet dream as Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine came on stage and rocked THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD with the Boss. Jimmy Cliff and Bruce did THE HARDER THEY COME then Eric Burden from the Animals sang a tune. To cap it off, Arcade Fire came out and sang Woodie Guthrie’s THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND.
