Ted Leo Covers Bruce Springsteen

This vid comes from Ted’s solo set at the Callum Robbins Benefit Show at Northsix in Williamsburg Friday night where, according to The Battering Room, cover lover Leo played 11 covers in a 16 song set. We’re sure no one complained though; by now we know Ted can pull off his own brand of Thin Lizzy (“Where Have All The Rude Boys Gone,” performed that night) or Idol Pop (“Since U Been Gone”), but he really knocks it out of the park on this Boss tune. Oh shit, “Glory Days” was the baseball one, right? Anyway, forget the metaphor. “Dancing In Dark” live in Brooklyn is pretty sweet, despite the lack of a 21st century hipster Courtney Cox, as P4K points out.
