An exhibit honoring Bruce Springsteen, which originally ran at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame from  2009 through February 2011, has made its way to Philadelphia.

Fans of The Boss will want to check out the artifacts on hand including his vintage Fender, featured on the cover of Born To Run.

According to the WSJ, the pieces weren’t intended to be part of a traveling show, but the Constitution Center in Philadelphia asked if a special run might be possible. “From Asbury Park to the Promised Land,” is open now until September 3rd of this year.

Awaiting your downloading pleasure today: New Yorks’ Fun release their second album Some Nights, featuring the song “We are Young” (you probably heard it featured in a Chevy commercial  during the Superbowl).

English garage rock trio Band of Skulls release there second album today Sweet and Sour. If you buy it at a record store you’ll get a limited edition lithograph, while they have them in stock.

In case you missed this sad news, legendary MC5 bassist Michael Davis passed away last week of liver failure in Chico, California. He was 68.

Jack White will make his solo musical debut on Saturday Night Live March 3rd. He’s promoting his album Blunderbuss. The host is Lindsay Lohan. (Yes you read right, Lindsay Lohan.)

Happy birthday to new wave icons: Jerry Harrison, of  Talking Heads, (63) and Ranking Roger of The English Beat and General Public (51).

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
