The Gaslight Anthem


I have to admit that I only knew a few of The Gaslight Anthem’s songs before I went to see them in the Olympia and kind of didn’t know what to expect. What I got was a sea of check shirts, what seemed like every bloke in Dublin…and a band capable of putting on a slick show, ploughing through one awesome song after another, and engaging with the crowd as they went along. There aren’t many acts that I’ve seen that have been capable of that – particularly not the big international acts, where it is often “Hello (insert city name here)” when it comes to banter. Really impressed.
