Springsteen joins Pittsburgh rocker Joe Grushecky for 23-song hometown show

Springsteen and Grushecky on stage - from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Bruce Springsteen sweated like it was 1995.  That was the year that  Springsteen produced and played on Pittsburgh local rock legend Joe Grushecky’s album American Babylon.  It became one of Grushecky’s best albums, and Springsteen toured the bars as a guitarist in Joe’s band following the album’s release, in what they called the “October Assault”

On Thursday night, Bruce rejoined Joe for the first of two shows they are playing in Pittsburgh as part of the 15th Anniversary of that album’s release.  Thursday’s show was a 2 1/2 hour, 23-song masterpiece that included many from Bruce’s Darkness on the Edge of Town  album, which will see a boxed set re-release and outtakes coming November 16

Here’s a video of their live version of Springsteen’s “Save My Love”, one of the cuts from the outtakes portion of the new Darkness set.
