Hungry Heart of Gold: Neil Young vs Bruce Springsteen covers with the Tomahawks, Birds & Arrows, Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores, Mary Johnson Rockers, Semi-Formal, Big Fat Gap, Django Haskins, Supreme Fiction 

When: Fri., Jan. 7, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $8
Each of these superstars has strengths and weaknesses. Both like big canvases, though Neil's paeans (Pocahontas, Johnny Rotten, Southern mores, the "Free World") come freighted with more sociopolitical baggage. Springsteen's stories are equally epic but tend to focus on human foibles and the desperate desire for redemption. Both love American roots and old-fashioned rock, though Springsteen is also partial to Philly soul (hence, Clarence Clemons). Young is an evocative songwriter, which compensates for his flat, nasal delivery, but his guitar playing prompted Bob Mould to invoke Guitar Center, wondering, "So, Neil, you gonna buy that guitar?" From Django Haskins to Birds & Arrows, promising new outfit Supreme Fiction, and Big Fat Gap, the local bands covering their tunes are up to the challenge. Admission to the 9 p.m. show is $8; proceeds benefit the Family Violence Prevention Center. —Chris Parker
