Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes played a rocking two hour set at The Egg on October 18. Although the venue wasn’t sold-out, everyone who was in attendance was either dancing in the aisles or dancing in their chairs. Southside played songs spanning his whole career and even took requests from the crowd. He was in a joking mood, mentioning how Buffalo has the worst snow in the world, New Jersey will transform Ebola into lobster like creatures because of their pollution, and how it’s impossible to find your way into The Egg itself. With 40 years under their belt, Southside and The Jukes show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
