The Promised Land
But back to business. Tonight I went to the promised land, and my shot vocal chords are the proof, as Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band blew away the HSBC Arena with a wild and crazy set that laid complete and utter waste to the place. Sure some wags might suggest that The Boss sandbagged it last night so he could blow away the repeat audience tonight in Buffalo... but those wags would be full of shit. Bruce Springsteen and the band left it all on the stage last night in Rochester and went even deeper tonight to go that extra mile to create an even more fuliflling experience. It was an awesome show, and I am tired. The Bruce Springsteen double was an incredible experience, and ultimately an overwhelming experience at that. He is our Neil Young, our Woody Guthrie, his band is the best bar band ever, and I am both gratified and humbled to see the man in action twice within 27 hours. My bowling game might suffer for it tomorrow, but it was worth it.
