Throughout her ongoing tour behind 2020’s Punisher, Phoebe Bridgers stopped in Ashbury Park final night time to play for a bunch of indie rock Jerseyites. Bridgers is a bit too massive to play The Stone Pony as of late, however she will actually play the outside live performance collection that the venue is placing on this summer time.
When Bridgers pulled into the Backyard State, she got here outfitted with a sure-fire crowd-pleaser: a Bruce Springsteen cowl. Not simply any Springsteen cowl both. Bridgers went deep to drag out an album minimize from 1980’s The River, the embittered and confused rumination on misplaced time and desperation, ‘Stolen Automobile’.
Bridgers is not any stranger to the works of Springsteen: she had beforehand coated The Boss’ Born in the U.S.A. observe ‘I’m On Fireplace’ again in 2018. That was when she was taking part in at Asbury Park the final time, so be sure to verify again in subsequent time Bridgers makes her option to Springsteen’s house turf to see what she covers subsequent. We’ll even begin taking bets: ‘Thunder Highway’? ‘The Rising’? ‘Tunnel of Love’?
‘Stolen Automobile’ is a very poignant selection. It sits proper in Bridgers’ slow-burning wheelhouse, and she or he’s in a position to deliver the right quantity of heartbreak to the music’s melancholy story of grand theft auto. ‘Stolen Automobile’ may need gotten its most distinguished popular culture needle drop within the 1997 movie Cop Land, however it has been a favorite of die-hard Springsteen followers since its launch 4 many years in the past.
Bridgers is holding on together with her ‘Reunion Tour’ all through 2022, making up for misplaced time that was briefly derailed because of Covid-19. Right here’s hoping that she pulls out a selection cowl for each hometown hero on her remaining tour stops (any concept who the largest artist from Madison County, Iowa is? John Wayne? OK, by no means thoughts).
