Under the Boss' Influence 

2069448.t.jpg
Minnesota's GB Leighton inspires itself with memories of a then-unknown Bruce Springsteen, who lit up his native New Jersey with workingman's rock and roll in the '70s. Just like the Boss, the band has roots-rocked its fair share of dance clubs, church halls, even a few fans' living rooms in its quest for national exposure. Promoting its 10th CD, Shake Them Ghosts, the group opens for the BoDeans in Cleveland tonight with a re-charged rock and roll spirit. "That's the place I'm coming from," says frontman Brian Leighton. "But at the end of the day, I'm just a common guy — a working-class kid from a Twin Cities suburb — who loves to put on a good show and, hopefully, write some good songs in between." Hear for yourself at 8 tonight at House of Blues, 308 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $16.50 to $20. Call 216-523-2583 or visit www.hob.com.
