Please Don't Stop Me

"wow" or more accurately "holy $#i+!!" is the first thing that came to mind when i first heard about Win and Regine from the Arcade Fire joining Bruce and the E Street Band onstage in Ottawa the other night...if you're a fan of either you've probably seen the clips already, but if not you need to...the excitement of the people filming the thing is one of the best things about it. so not without a tinge of jealousy (of those in attendance and those onstage both!) i present the links...

State Trooper
Keep The Car Running

State Trooper hadn't been played live with the band since 1984. I wonder if that's Little Steven's mandolin or if Win brought his own?

I agree that the near-hysterical "Holy shit!" from the audience makes the clip highly enjoyable.

So what does this do to the chances of Stephin Merritt coming up on stage when Springsteen passes through NY to perform "Summer Clothes"? Improved, I'd say, but I'm still not going to hold my breath.
