One of my biggest regrets these past couple of weeks has been not making it out to catch SXSW champions Diarrhea Planet whip Shea Stadium into a sweaty, four guitar frenzy. You may have heard that Shea Stadium regular and Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles joined the band and brought the house down with an epic rendition of “Born To Run”. I think I’ve seen someone different nostalgically tweet about it every day since it happened, and as you will see below, deservedly so.
Via Titus’ Youtube page we get a full, quality sounding peek into what a lot of us may have missed as Diarrhea Planet and Mr. Stickles did the big Boss Man proud and single handedly saved rock and roll all in one fell swoop. Or at least a lot more so than Fall Out Boy would have you believe they do/did.
Watch Diarrhea Planet & Patrick Stickles cover Bruce Springteen’s classic “Born To Run”.
