Im the boss. Any questions?

We love us some Springsteen here in Cleveland, don't we?

Clevelanders often take pride in the fact that we were one of the first cities to embrace his music. And we're the home of one of the greatest Boss bootlegs of all time.

So it's no surprise that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has just scheduled another Springsteen weekend.

They held one of these things in 2009. This year's edition will take place on June 4-6.

It's all Bruce, all weekend, with the Rock Hall loading up on documentaries, guest speakers, and live performances (not from Bruce or even stray E Street Band members, but cover group Stone Pony Band, who'll play on Saturday).

For our money (and yeah, it's gonna cost you if you want to go to these events), the best program is Saturday's "Bruce Springsteen’s Cleveland History," which includes local luminaries like the Agora's Hank LoConti, concert promoter Jules Belkin, and radio guy John Gorman talking about our city's crucial part in the Springsteen saga. All that's missing is the Cleveland Boys.

You can find a complete schedule of events here. —Michael Gallucci (follow me on Twitter @mgallucci)
