This weekend, at Skipper's Smokehouse in Tampa, WMNF will present a show they're calling "Bruuuuce!," in honor of Bruce Springsteen's 65th birthday earlier this week (Sept. 23, to be exact).
Over the course of eight hours, more than 20 bands and solo acts will performed more than 50 Sprinsgteen songs, including the "Born to Run" album performed start-to-finish, and 10 singer-songrwriters performing one song each from "Nebraska."
Bands include Al Torchia & The Tattered Saints, Blue Dice, Glad All Over, Parson Brown, Talk to Mark, Ted Lukas & The Misled, The Hack Pack, The Irish Buskers, Troy Youngblood and The SoulFish, The Hummingbirds, Sunset Bridge Band, J.A.D.E., Wizards and Koko Ray & The Keepers.
It runs from 4 p.m. until midnight Saturday, Sept. 27. Skippers -- which is a cool mostly-outdoor venue with a rustic Florida feel -- is at 910 Skipper Road in north Tampa. Tickets are $13 in advance and $16 at the door. Call 813-238-6001 or go to wmnf.org for tickets, or call 813-971-0666 for venue information.
