“Everything dies, baby that’s a fact
Baby everything that dies, someday comes back”
-Bruce Springsteen, Atlantic City

In 1985, fresh from backpacking across Europe and following Springsteen’s Born in the USA tour, Backstreets Magazine contributor Bob Zimmerman began the Pink Cadillac Club every Monday night at Annie’s on the corner of M St. and Wisconsin Ave in Georgetown. The club was an immediate hit turning slow Monday nights into a regular packed house. The Pink Cadillac Club was based on Los Angeles’ Boss Club and proved a powerful formula in the town where Springsteen started at the Childe Harold in December 1973 and worked his way to RFK Stadium in August 1985.

Bruce Springsteen’s profile has never been higher. Many consider this to be Springsteen’s most productive 12 month period without a tour. Fans have a chance to get together and discuss what this and past years have brought;

-Springsteen on Broadway released on Netflix and on CD
-Brian Hiatt’s “Bruce Springsteen The Stories Behind The Songs” book release
-Springsteen’s “Western Stars” released June 14, 2019
-“Blinded by the Light” film released in the US on August 16, 2019
-“Long Walk Home: Reflections on Bruce Springsteen” by Jonathan Cohen to be released September 22, 2019
-Rumors continue to swirl that Sony Music will be releasing an as yet unannounced Legacy CD box set of unreleased Springsteen recordings this November.

The Pink Cadillac Club at 118 North will take place Thursday September 19th from 6pm to 11pm. Tickets are now on sale.
