Last night, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band played the Apollo Theater in Harlem. The “powerhouse two-and-a-half hour performance,” as The New York Times called it, aired on the closed airwaves of SiriusXM, the satellite radio network that sponsored the concert. And the show was attended by company VIPs. Mercifully, Columbia Records was kind enough to give us mortals a little sniff, posting online Springsteen’s performance of “Death To My Hometown,” a new track that rails against bankers and corporate leaders and the damage they’ve done to American communities. The Boss’ new album, Wrecking Ball, is on sale now. H/T @webacion

Fascinating to see the boss chosing Celtic music to complain about American banking practices. Is he tapping into his roots or saying something about who really controls the money?
