Fans at the Asbury Park’s Music + Film festival had seen a lot of rare, mindblowing live Bruce Springsteen footage by the end of Saturday night. In the city’s old Paramount Theatre, where Springsteen has performed many times, they saw rare clips like a highly-charged performance of “Quarter to Three” from the Bottom Line in 1975, where Bruce got so caught up in the energy that he dropped his guitar pick, and a fan handed it back to him.
