Bruce Springsteen has lined up a long list of performers for Allegiance of Neighbors, a two-night benefit performance in Red Bank, New Jersey, to benefit Monmouth County victims and survivors of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The performances are scheduled for October 18th and 19th at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank. In addition to a performance by Springsteen, the two shows will feature appearances by Jon Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, Joe Ely, the Smithereens and side projects by E Street Band members Gary Tallent and Max Weinberg. Also appearing are former Elvis Presley backers D.J. Fontana, Sonny Burgess and Jerry Sheff.

The sound check for the first performance will be opened up to families of the more than 160 Monmouth County victims of the tragedy. The October 19th show will be televised on CN8, the Comcast Network, which serves parts of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey. The channel will also air a toll-free number during the broadcast to help raise additional funds for the effort. Those seeking to make donations can also go to www.allianceofneighbors.org.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
