The Gaslight Anthem

The Gaslight Anthem

The Gaslight Anthem didn’t pull any punches last night, as they blew the doors off the Ed Sullivan Theater in their nearly hour long streaming Live on Letterman concert.

From the moment they casually walked on stage, shaking hands and palming beers like they had just walked into a friend’s house party, it was clear this was going to be different kind of show.

The word “intimate” is usually reserved for sit-down, singer-songwriter, acoustic shows, but considering the bond The Gaslight Anthem has with their fans, it would be hard not to call this affair just that.

Frontman Brian Fallon and his New Jersey-based band mates launched into a gut-wrenching rendition of “Great Expectations” that had the almost-hometown crowd shouting along from the start.

Proving their loyalty to their hardcore fans, Gaslight, went back to Sink of Swim for their second song “Drive.”

The band treated fans to a couple of new songs from their upcoming album, Handwritten, as well as blowing away the crowd away with both “45” and “Here Comes My Man.” But to keep it balanced, and to reward the longtime, hometown fans, Fallon introduced “Film Noir” “for all the Jersey people.”

The evening closed with an encore. The band delivered their take on The Who’s classic “Teenage Wasteland.”

Watch the entire show right here.
