I like Gaslight Anthem, but sometimes their singer (Brian Fallon) is not too tight between songs if he decides to talk. Love the band, think their audience believes it is more “punk” than it really is (moshing doesn’t mean you are punk), and the band –for better or worse – is hitched to some of the Jersey rock and roll lineage. I’d embrace it. Mostly, they have.
Great piece on the NPR site about the night Fallon told the”Bruuuuce”-ers to shut up.
Last weekend the Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon lashed out at his audience; an audience that had already been lashed by winds and rain during what was pretty terrific set in a spectacular new waterfront venue in lower Manhattan.
