Watch Bruce Springsteen with Social Distortion at Sea. Hear. Now. Festival

Bruce Springsteen christened the inaugural launch of Asbury Park’s Sea. Hear. Now Festival by joining Social Distortion on stage Sunday night (Sept. 30).

Springsteen was introduced by singer Mike Ness, who promised he would do a song “or two.”

Those two songs stretched to three–including “Bad Luck,” “Misery Loves Company” and “Ring of Fire.”

This isn’t the first time Ness and Springsteen shared a stage together at the shore. Springsteen previously joined The Mike Ness Band for four songs in 2008 at The Stone Pony for a set that inluded “Misery Loves Company,” “Ball and Chain,” “If You Leave Before Me,” and a cover of Bobby Fuller’s “I Fought the Law.”

Earlier this summer, Springsteen was on hand for the official opening of the new Asbury Lanes.

The festival–which also featured a pop up art gallery- was produced by Danny Clinch’s Between The Sets and C3 Presents, the team behind Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Shaky Festivals and more.
The beachside festival featured three stages. Two were located on the beach and the other was at Bradley Park across from the Paramount Theatre. Multiple stages hosted 30 musical performances and interviews with artists. Sea.Hear.Now also included live painting demonstrations, a surfboard making gallery, and other celebrations of surf culture and art.
