SPIRIT IN THE NIGHT: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN’S GREATEST SHOW—A Live Multimedia Presentation by Pop Culture Historian Arlen Schumer!

Arlen is a friend of mine and is a old member of the SPL.  He has his own website where you can visit and get more info.  Oats



On September 19th, 1978 Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band performed what many fans and critics consider their greatest single show, at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey. Why this particular show? Why does it stand out from not only all the other amazing Darkness on the Edge of Town tour performances, but from Bruce's entire performing career? There are many reasons--and that's what Arlen Schumer’s multimedia presentation, SPIRIT IN THE NIGHT, is all about.
 
Schumer, a pop culture historian and writer/designer of coffeetable books like The Silver Age of Comic Book Art and Visions from The Twilight Zone, was in the 6th row of the landmark show, and the art director of Thunder Road magazine, the first Springsteen fan publication. He’s written about the show over the years for various books and publications like Backstreets (the Springsteen publication since 1980), and has now put together a multimedia presentation that recreates the legendary concert in words, images, music and video excerpts from the show itself.
So whether you know Springsteen’s music, or not—whether you’ve seen him in concert a hundred times, or never—you’ll look, listen and learn about Bruce Springsteen in ways you never have before!

So does this mean we'll get an archive release of 9/19/78?

I confess that I think Agora, Saginaw and possibly Winterland are better Darkness tour shows.

This presentation has nothing to do with JL Inc.  I wouldn't read any more into it than what it is.
