Bruce Springsteen hasn't played in Cincinnati since 2008, but various iterations of him promise to keep the local concert and record scene busy this fall. There are at least three major acts coming to town that — in the style and substance of their material — have been pronouncedly influenced by The Boss: Gaslight Anthem, playing Bogart's Sept. 22; The Hold Steady, playing the Southgate House Oct. 2; and John Mellencamp, performing at Music Hall Nov. 1.   

Cowboy Junkies, Gaslight Anthem, The Pernice Brothers, Tom Petty and Steve Cropper and Felix Cavaliere

The latest Cowboy Junkies album, 'Renmin Park,' is something of a beginning for the Canadian quartet that came to prominence with the release of 'The Trinity Sessions' 22 years ago. The circumstances that led to 'Renmin Park,' and the next three Cowboy Junkies albums for that matter, are an almost perfect storm of creative conceptualism and execution.
