On Thursday night (3/15), Bruce Springsteen played Austin’s Moody Theater with a packed lineup of guests. He brought out the show’s opener Alejandro Escovedo, as well as Jimmy Cliff, Eric Burdon of the Animals, Tom Morello, and Régine Chassagne and Win and Will Butler from the Arcade Fire, the Low Anthem and Joe Ely. Check out a video of the set-closing cover of “This Land Is Your Land.”

That show was in addition to the SXSW keynote speech, which he gave earlier in the day and which you can see below and stream at NPR.

Like the Apollo Theatre gig on March 9th, the show’s capacity was quite a bit less than Bruce’s usual stadium-sized tour dates, which start Sunday, March 18th.

You can see Alejandro Escovedo several more time at SXSW, including today (3/16) at the Jackalope.
