Bruce Springsteen - "Twist and Shout" (live August 1975)
As some of you may have noticed, I've been unable to tend to the blog this week. I had very limited online access while housesitting over the last week, and now that I'm back in my own place I've been swamped with academic matters. Still, it looks like I'll be leaving momentarily to hit the Band of Horses/Cary Ann Hearst/Arizona show at The EARL. I'd feel bad about not posting to pimp the show, but it's been sold out forever. So... oh well. Perhaps I'll revisit Cary Ann and/or Arizona in the near future to make up for it.
On another note, I've been fortunate enough recently to get ahold of some really nice older shows by artists in Atlanta. While I have a moment, I thought I'd share a choice nugget from one of those. Here's a spirited rendition of "Twist and Shout" performed by The Boss right about the time Born to Run was about to hit store shelves.

So, where the heck was the Electric Ballroom? I've never even heard of the place, but a quick Google search reveals it hosted a lot of big shows in the 1970s. Anybody?
