Sights and Sounds: Bruce Springsteen, Stagecoach bound

And here we go. Today I'll be out at the annual Stagecoach Festival as part of The Orange County Register's team of writers and photographers covering the annual country and Americana festival in Indio, California. Among the acts on the festival's 3-day bill are JD Souther, the Jayhawks, Chris Isaak and the Mavericks. Should be a hoot! To keep up with all my writings, as well as those from George A. Paul and Ben Wener, keep checking back at the newspaper's Soundcheck blog for reviews and photo slide shows.
I'm more than weary having gone to Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band's terrific show at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. I don't have a lot of time to say much other than it was an amazing show (loved the versions of "Promised Land" and "The Rising") despite my terrible seats in the last row up behind the stage (why does the Boss charge so much for lousy seats like that? I thought he cared about the ordinary folks? And why are T-shirts that cost $2 to make priced at $45!)...
