A couple months back, during SXSW, Toronto musician Bahamas (aka Afie Jurvanen) made a plea to Bruce Springsteen for some tickets to the Boss's show in Austin. Now the footage of the singer's request has emerged, complete with a cover of "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out."
The track originally appeared on Springsteen's classic 1976 album Born to Run, though Bahamas gives it an acoustic, doo wop-tinged makeover.
There's no word on whether or not Jurvanen got into the show, but you can watch him make his pitch to the Boss ("I'm staying at the Super 8 on the I35, like, 20 miles out of town, so if you just want to swing by and grab me in your Prius or whatever") and reinvent "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" above.
Produced by Ben Lavender, Rachel Puckett and Ross Hinkle for Liveset. Audio recorded and mixed by Fifth Street Studios. Shot by Hunter Holder. Edited and graded by Ross Hinkle.
Special thanks to Bahamas and their team.
