Earlier this week, the always excellent Southern Shelter posted Patterson Hood’s live tribute to Bruce Springsteen’s classic 1978 LP Darkness On The Edge Of Town. Recorded December 1st at the 40 Watt club, in Athens, Hood was performing in support of the “Underneath The Covers 2″ benefit supporting AIDS Athens. Hood was reportedly flanked by musicians/friends John Neff, Brad Morgan, David Barbe, and Jay Gonzalez.

Here are two of my favorite covers from the set; grab the full performance at Southern Shelter here….

  1. Loved the post two posts ago with all the X-mas music…You wouldn’t happen to have the Prairie Ramblers’ “Cowboy Santa Claus”, would you? It’s not up on the Christmas blog you linked anymore, and being a Texan, I would love to have that song to survive the X-mas season….Much obliged, and I really enjoy the blog.

  2. Good pictures from the night here:
