What to Do This Weekend: Springsteen Weekend



  • Bossy

The Rock Hall’s From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen exhibit opened last spring, but it’s so popular it’s been extended through the end of 2010. Last year’s Springsteen Weekend was a hit too, so it’s happening again this weekend. Festivities include special screenings of Bruuuuce’s appearances at various Rock Hall inductions and the 25th anniversary concert, as well as rare concert and TV footage. There’s also “Meet the Curator” gallery talks in the exhibition hall. From 3 to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow, the Stone Pony Band will play the lobby stage, and there’ll be a discussion of Springsteen’s ties to Cleveland with promoters Jules Belkin and Henry LoConti (who booked him before he was the Boss) and John Gorman (who was WMMS’ program director when the station helped make him the Boss back in the mid ’70s). It all takes place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Admission is $22. —Anastasia Pantsios
