It’s a night of Bruce Springsteen hero worship at Hendershot’s, featuring author Peter Ames Carlin and an impressively selected handful of local and touring musicians. Longtime music writer Carlin, the author of last year’s Springsteen biography, Bruce (the first such project to which the legendary rocker gave special access and approval), will read from his book, which Avid Bookshop will have on hand for sale in new, shiny paperback form. Afterwards, Patterson Hood, T. Hardy Morris, Don Chambers, Moths, Old Smokey, Loney John Hutchins and many more will perform their favorite Springsteen tunes. All proceeds from the event will benefit Nuçi’s Space. (The Boss bonanza continues Thursday, when Carlin will read and sign books just down the street at Avid.)
