VIDEO: Gaslight Anthem, "Left of the Dial" (Replacements cover)
As promised, we come to you now with some better-quality video from Gaslight Anthem's set on St. Patrick's Day at Hurricane O'Reilly's. And yeah, we should get over it, but there is still something inherently weird about seeing a band we like a place like that. What's next? No Age and Titus Andronicus playing the Kells? Anyway, above you can watch them covering the Replacements' "Left of the Dial," in which lead singer Brian Fallon sounds almost indistinguishable from Paul Westerberg if you close your eyes. After the jump, watch "The '59 Sound," which likely needs no introduction.
No, not the typical joint for a punk gig. But judging from down-the-block lines outside Hurricane O'Reilly's -- and from the raucous sing-alongs inside -- WFNX's invite-only GASLIGHT ANTHEM gig drew far more fans than yahoos. Jersey's Bosscore heroes brought the full band and played for an hour, then stuck around to hang out for at least that long afterwards. And security didn't kick out the stage divers, so there's that. The big surprise was a Replacements cover, which we'll be posting some quality video of later in the week. For now we've got the Flipcam take of "Patient Ferris Wheel" and a bunch more photos, all after the jump.
Our Sandbox bretheren are waking early to get shitfaced bright and early this morning, so we expect them to be good and lacquered by the time we meet up with them around dinner time for Round 2 of WFNX's St. Paddy's Day mayhem. The only way in is to win tix on FNX, so head over to their website and harass them for list spots. We'll see you at the bar, or check back later this week for video.
