Gaslight Anthem
Gaslight Anthem

As discussed, Jersey rockers The Gaslight Anthem are doing some shows this year, including three in NYC this month: July 26 on Pier 26 with The Bouncing Souls; July 27 at Irving Plaza with Loved Ones frontman Dave Hause, fellow NJ band The Scandals, and Frances & the Foundation; and July 28 on Pier 26 with The Hold Steady. The Irving Plaza show is a Red Bull Sound Select show, which is free for those who requested and received a ticket. Those tickets are all reserved now (and will be sent out soon), but we're giving away another pair. Details on how to enter are below.

Tickets for both Pier 26 shows are still available, but we're also giving away pairs of tickets to those. For the 7/26 show with Bouncing Souls, enter our contest on the BrooklynVegan Facebook, and for the 7/28 show with The Hold Steady, details on how to enter are below.

In honor of that RBSS show, Gaslight frontman Brian Fallon and Scandals frontman Jared Hart teamed up to release a five-song split acoustic EP that the two artists recorded. The EP includes acoustic versions of Gaslight Anthem songs "Handwritten," "She Loves You," and "45," in addition to Scandals songs "All Nighters" and "Sirens." You can listen to the EP for free at Red Bull Sound Select's website (registration required). The pictures above are from that recording session.

I don't even like Springsteen and that comment is an insult to him.

This band's first record was pretty good, but man have they fallen off. Embarrassing at this point.
