    1. Gallery : The Gaslight Anthem, Northcote, and Sammy Kay At The Commodore Ballroom 3/19

      Posted on in Gallery

      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.
