Info & Setlist | Venue

In town a day early, Bruce bumps into Phil Hamilton, singer for the Montana-based Lost Highway Band. Due to perform that night at Seattle's Old Timer's Cafe, Hamilton invites Bruce along. That night Springsteen ventures out of the Olympic Hotel alone in the evening, walks a couple of blocks and pays the $1 cover charge to get in and listen to the band. Sat at the end of the bar, Bruce listens to the set before borrowing a guitar and joining the band in a three-song, 15-minute set, although it's not certain that "Gloria" was played. The following night, Springsteen dedicates "The River" to the band. Another account in Point Blank by Christopher Sandford went: he paid the $1 cover, ordered, then mildly asked the bar band, "Can I play?"
