In what is now an annual tradition, we're playing catch up during this final week of the year. If this post seems outdated, that's because it is. Happy Holidays!

Gaslight Anthem @ Radio City
Gaslight Anthem

After 2008's breakthrough album, 'The '59 Sound', The Gaslight Anthem found themselves pigeonholed as Springsteen wannabes. Sure, he's a huge inspiration and the band quoted a few of The Boss' lyrics on that record, but they're equally as infl uenced by punk and soul - previous lyrical citations include Sam Cooke, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and The Clash. Still, with this year's sublime third eff ort, 'American Slang', the band decided it was time to move away from all of that. "There are no quotes on this record," explains singer Brian Fallon. "This is our record. It's not Bruce's record, it's not Bob Dylan's record. It's ours, the record we made on our own." [Clash Music]
The Gaslight Anthem, who are playing Bamboozle in 2011, headlined Radio City Music Hall on 9/30. Rival Schools, who have a set of 2011 dates coming up, opened the show. A set of pictures from the show are in this post. They continue, with Rival Schools' new video for "Shot after Shot", and Gaslight's setlist, below...

So, instead of a shitty band ripping off Springsteen, now they're just a shitty band.

I SHOULD like this band. I'm from NJ, everyone around me loves them, but alas, I cannot understand it. I've tried to get into them, but they're just really shitty. Am I missing something, or maybe the people of NJ are desperate for another "hometown" band to cheer for. The last album was unlistenable. What the hell was that? Is that supposed to be the future of rock and roll?

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
