Watch The Gaslight Anthem On Yahoo! Live On September 16

The Gaslight Anthem - Portrait

On September 16 (at 9:30 p.m.) The Gaslight Anthem will bring their tour to Boston for a show at The House Of Blues. If you can’t make it out, or are no where near Boston, you can still check out the performance via Yahoo! Live.

Yahoo Screen (the saviors of my beloved Community), have teamed with Live Nation to create Yahoo! Live, who are broadcasting the largest amounts of live concert streams out there. They will stream shows live as they’re happening, so you can take it in no matter where you are. The show will loop for the following 24 hours, so you can watch watch it the next day if you missed it, or even watch it after you were actually there.

One of the concerts on my radar is The Gaslight Anthem, who I don’t know if I’ll be able to catch live this year, but knowing I can just stream it makes me feel a little bit better about that.

To find the stream, head here on the 16th. Then you got 24 hours after that to watch the stream.

The Gaslight Anthem – Get Hurt

By Will Oliver, July 20th 2014

From left: Brian Fallon, Alex Levine, Ben Horowitz and Alex Rosamilia of the band Gaslight Anthem in New York.

The Gaslight Anthem seem to be doing something a little different on their soon to be released new album Get Hurt, which comes out on August 19 via Island Records.

While the first single “Rollin’ and Tumblin” was for the most part, a very The Gaslight Anthem song, the new direction that the band promised is found on second single, and title track, “Get Hurt.” It does still have flourishes of The Gaslight Anthem, but it does sound sort of like a mid-tempo synth-ballad that we’ve heard from The Killers. It’s fine and all, but it’s not my favorite piece from the band. Even so, I’m sure the band will be able to find an even bigger audience with this one.

The Gaslight Anthem - Portrait

The Gaslight Anthem will return with a new album titled Get Hurt, that will be released on August 19 via Island Records.

The album (their fifth) was recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, with producer Mike Crossey. The album marks a new direction for the band, hitting influences such as folk, punk, and Americana. It’s an album described as heavier, yet still intimate. Sounds good to me.

The band have given us a taste of the album with first single “Rollin’ and Tumblin.” It sort of goes against the “new direction” that the band hinted at, as it’s a very by the numbers Gaslight Anthem track, with those familiar Brian Fallon vocals and the big steady New Jersey-minded rock ‘n’ roll licks. It hasn’t completely captured me the way that some of their others singles have, but it certainly just the job well enough.

The Gaslight Anthem @ Made In America (9/1/2013)

By Will Oliver, September 3rd 2013


After catching The Gaslight Anthem just last month in the quite intimate Irving Plaza, it was much different seeing them rock the main stage at Made In America. The band still brought it though, letting all the extra space carry home their tunes even further. They kept the mood fairly low key towards the midway point, before busting things open with great performances of “The Queen Of Lower Chelsea”, “Great Expectations” and of course, “American Slang.”

The Gaslight Anthem @ Irving Plaza (7/27/2013)

By Will Oliver, July 29th 2013 — with 2 comments


Saturday night was my first time at Irving Plaza somehow. For some reason I always expected it to be one of the larger venues in the city, but I was pleasantly surprised as to how fairly intimate/medium sized it was especially for a band like The Gaslight Anthem.

Sounding larger than life with that New Jersey pride seeping through, The Gaslight Anthem led us down the anthematic epic path in a rock solid 16-song set. “’59 Sound” and “The Diamond Church Street Choir” were two of the first three songs played. They’re some of my favorite songs by them, so hearing them that early set quite the tone.

From there we got a good mix of new material (highlight was “45”) as well as all the goodies: “American Slang, “Great Expectations”, “The Backseat.” They even gave us “Boomboxes And Dictionaries” from their debut album.

Brian Fallon has grown into quite the frontman. He’s enthusiastic, on point, and engaging. The rest of the band do their job, but without Fallon, I don’t see The Gaslight Anthem being as great as they are. When they’re playing, we all feel a little Jersey pride, even though normally it would be the other way around.

The Gaslight Anthem @ Terminal 5 (November 28, 2012)

By Will Oliver, November 29th 2012

The Gaslight Anthem have come a long way, and if a three night run at Terminal 5 doesn’t speak for itself, then you just gotta be there to understand. The band have a dedicated following that is very Springsteen in spirit. You got fans of all ages young and old, and most of them from New Jersey and proudly letting it show. The band is capable of provided both soft, sincere moments (“Mae”, “Here’s Looking At You, Kid”), as well as those stadium worthy rock anthems that had the crowd singing every word as it was their last hope and prayer (“American Slang”, “‘The 59 Sound”, “Great Expectations”, “The Queen of Lower Chelsea”).

Brian Fallon is a great frontman, one that any band would be lucky to have. He has a sincire quality about him that is one of the reasons the band is so beloved. It makes sense to me that people don’t simply like this band, they love them. They go to these shows to bond collectively, and share moments, just like the band do with their image rich lyrics.

My fandom for The Gaslight Anthem has been growing over the years, and finally seeing one of their live shows has me sold that they are one of the best things that rock has to offer.

The Gaslight Anthem @ Lollapalooza (August 5, 2012)

By Will Oliver, August 8th 2012

Gaslight Anthem put on a tremendous show that recaptured the live energy and exuberance that they proudly wear on their New Jersey sleeves during their studio recordings. Brian Fallon and friends didn’t disappoint, giving us a good set of some fantastic tunes. The stage they were at was packed to the edge, a warning sign of just how much bigger these guys are than even the festival thought,

[new]: The Gaslight Anthem – 45

By Will Oliver, April 30th 2012

Seemingly out of no where, I made the connection with The Gaslight Anthem after countless urging from my good friend, Alex. One day, I just connected with the band and it all made sense. The prideful NJ sound isn’t something that I understand, since I’m from New York. However, that prideful spirit and the incredible powerful sound that chugs along with the band is something that anyone can appreciate. It’s safe to say that these guys are becoming one of my new favorites.

I’m happy to say that they have released a stream of their new single “45” today. It’s off new album, Handwritten, which will be released July 24 via Mercury Records. It’s more great stuff from the band, who haven’t lost a step on the way. They still have their spirit and that blitzkrieg power going on their side.
