Music of the Boss

Springsteen cover band Tramps Like Us will perform at the Colonial in Phoenixville tomorrow. Unlike other tribute bands, Tramps Like Us does not try to impersonate; instead, the band concentrates on recreating authentic-sounding versions of the music in the spirit of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

The band's concerts offer the spontaneity and energy of the Boss by reproducing familiar tunes while straying from the usual cover-band tendency to imitate only the studio recordings. Call 610-917-1228 or visit
