And It’s Probably Gonna Fade Like A Tattoo That Hides The Shame

22 11 2010

For the last six months or so, I’ve more or less been constantly listening to all three albums by the Gaslight Anthem. While their first one ‘Sink Or Swim’ is easily my favourite (I like it when bands are a little rougher round the edges) this year’s ‘American Slang’ is great too, and it features in the top five of my ‘albums of 2010’ list that I’ve sent to the different mags I write for for their end of year polls.

Tonight, I’m reviewing the band at the Ulster Hall and I have to say I haven’t been as excited about a gig in a long time. Last night they covered Lizzy’s ‘the Boys Are Back In Town’ in Dublin, so here’s hoping we get something similar this evening and if they play ‘1930’ I will almost certainly lose. My. Shit.
