Coachella Preview - The Head And The Heart

I left my book in the car, because I had taken it to jury duty. So as I prepared for my evening reading I asked my husband where the latest "Rolling Stone" was. He scoffed at the cover and sneered, "You gonna read about Bruce Springsteen?"

I feel sorry for him, never having experienced the awe and genius that is Bruce Springsteen. But I digress. No, in fact, I was too tired to read an entire article that night. I just wanted to read the blurbs.

It was the following night that I read the entire interview that Jon Stewart did for the magazine. Wow. So much eloquence coming from that guy's head. But wait, you are asking. Is Bruce Springsteen at Coachella this year? Stop - don't go google it. He's not. But I thought back to something he said in the article as I was listening to the self-titled album from The Head And The Heart. Who will be playing at Coachella.

To paraphrase, Springsteen said that the "who" that we are at any given moment is like a car we are driving. Lots of people get in, but no one ever gets out.

Is it any wonder why we all leave home?
People say, "I knew you when you were six years old!"
And you say, "But I've changed, I've changed, I've changed."
Mom and Dad, if only you could see me now
Been here for a year and now I own this town
Cause I've changed, I've changed, I've changed, I've changed.

Springsteen says otherwise. That six year old is still in the car with you. Every person you've been and every experience you've had, they're still in the car with you baby.

Check back to last summer, when Film Bird first introduced you to this band. If you didn't buy their album then, don't you think it's about time? We will be checking them out at Coachella on Saturday of the festival weekend.
