Hot Stove, Cool Music takes over right field roof deck before Bruce Springsteen

Theo Epstein doesn’t occupy an office at Fenway Park anymore, but his Hot Stove Cool Music fund-raisers live on. Tuesday, supporters of Epstein’s Foundation to Be Named Later gathered on Fenway’s right-field roof deck for a Hot Stove Cool Music bash before Bruce Springsteen hit the stage for the first of his two shows at the ballpark. Epstein’s brother Paul, who cofounded the Foundation to Be Named Later, was at the pre-show VIP party with supporters including musicians Kay Hanley and Figgs frontman Mike Gent; chefs Dante de Magistris, Tiffani Faison, and Jason Santos, who served up savory treats; and Hall of Fame scribe Peter Gammons (who also joined Theo for a Hot Stove Cool Music event in Chicago earlier this summer.) That event featured Boston acts and cacophonous Cubs fans such as Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins. Money raised at Tuesday’s party will help fund the Foundation to Be Named Later’s Gammons/FTBNL College Scholarship. Other boldfacers at the Boss show included “Little Children’’ author Tom Perrotta, Davios owner Steve DeFillippo, Ed Kane, Newbury Comics prez Mike Dreese, Larry Moulter, Peter Smyth of Greater Media,


Woody Geisman, and John Tasse.
