The Gaslight Anthem
Unabashed Springsteen idolatry may be the flavor du jour these days for a number of younger bands, but liberally tattooed Gaslight frontman Brian Fallon's accordingly ragged howl charges forward in front of a backline more indebted to punk than classic rock revivalism. There's an element of cheese at times too, but that could be said of Bruce as well, right? Must be a New Jersey thing. Fake Problems open.
