SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT // The War On Drugs Cover The Boss

THIS IS WHY THE INTERNET EXISTS. For without it, many of us would not have opportunity to have our minds blown by this gem of a cover. It is The War On Drugs playing Bruce Springsteen’s “The Ties That Bind,” originally released on The River in 1980. Adam and the gang rocked this song during a two-night stint, one of which was a New Years Eve show, at Johnny Brenda’s. Enjoy above!

Folks from WXPN’s The Key happened to be some of the lucky attendees at the NYE performance, which also featured Purling Hiss and Avery Rosewater. “As streamers popped open, confetti flew and champagne was poured, the band closed the trilogy with an outstanding, moving rendition of “Come To The City,” the centerpiece of their 2011 album ‘Slave Ambient.’ But the show was just getting going.” Read the full review and check out photos HERE.
