Gaslight Anthem: The Meaning Of Staying Out Late

The Gaslight Anthem is a band from New Jersey, and when you're from Jersey you're going to be compared Springsteen.  It comes with the territory.  Sometimes, when a band or musician is continually compared to an icon, the expectations are too lofty and comparisons unfounded.  However, in Gaslight Anthem's case, their similarities  to The Boss aren't only well deserved, but work well for their sound.

American Slang, the latest release, from Gaslight Anthem was released in 2010.  Here's an acoustic performance of my favorite song off the disc, "The Diamond Church Street Choir."
