Watch Springsteen, Arcade Fire, Flaming Lips, Jackson Browne & More Cover Woody Guthrie at SXSW

What’s a Bruce Springsteen show without an all-star sing-a-long? Last night at SXSW, the Boss followed up a warmly-received keynote speech with a performance at the Moody Theater, accompanied by the E Street Band. At the end of his set, he brought a ton of famous friends on stage — Tom Morello, Alejandro Escovedo, Eric Burdon, Arcade Fire’s Regine Chassagne and Win and Will Butler, among them — to close with a cover of Woody Guthrie’s "This Land Is Your Land," one of the most "we’re all in this together" songs ever laid down. Consequence of Sound recorded some video for our viewing pleasure, which you can hit after the click.

Morello gets on the mic around the 4:00 mark and makes a bunch of dorky finger-pointing gestures, which is just great. The Guthrie-sharing spirit was all around at SXSW: The day before, The Flaming Lips and Jackson Browne covered Guthrie’s "Along Sun & The Rain," accompanied by some iPads. (It’s a weird world we live in.) Watch that one below, courtesy of Stereogum.

SXSW ends on Sunday, fun for everyone stuck at home following the coverage on Twitter. If you’re up for more man-on-the-beat perspective, remember to read the rest of Sara Romeo-White’s coverage for BlackBook as it comes through the wire.
