A few weeks back, The Gaslight Anthem’s press folks reached out to us for an interview with Alex Rosamilia about the current tour and how last year’s record Get Hurt is doing. We had a great chat last week, and I just had to ask if I could cover Gaslight’s (rare) PNW showing through mid-March. With The Devil Wears Prada hitting Seattle the same night, I asked the Gaslight crew if I could go up to Vancouver to see this New Jersey heavy hitter the night before. They graciously agreed, and I can’t express it well enough: The Gaslight Anthem is a knockout rock show.
A few years ago, I made a unilateral decision to buy all of my music. I’ve been taking in new artists at an alarming rate, especially since I started writing for RCA, so it’s been an expensive but ultimately rewarding decision that I encourage others to consider. I’m sure the artists I love will agree by the quarters and dimes they receive from my meager support.
