show recap: the gaslight anthem (october 7, 2010)


photo credit: loren wohl

To sum up the music of The Gaslight Anthem in one word: earnest. From their grassroots beginnings in New Brunswick, NJ with a heavy influence of Bruce Springsteen (the one and only time i’ll mention it, i swear) to a national touring act that can headline Warehouse Live’s 1500 capacity ballroom, the boys of The Gaslight Anthem have kept their “awww shucks” demeanor no matter the amount of success obtained. These guys are as blue-collar as they come, but sure bring out the big guns in support of their latest release American Slang.

Hit the jump for the rest of the recap.
