The Gaslight Anthem and Dave Hause

$18-20

I don't usually define my favorite songs as guilty pleasures. I'm not ashamed of the music I like. Liking that one My Chemical Romance song that sounds like Queen doesn't make me a bad person (if you mumbled "Yes it does" to yourself just now, then you need to take a good look at the world and revisit what's important). So with that, I have no problem saying this: I like Gaslight Anthem. I don't like like them. I'm not going to go to this show and sing along and jump onstage pretending that I'm Courteney Cox and GA's Brian Fallon is Springsteen (although...). It's just that I have a thing for bands from Jersey—the Bouncing Souls, the Misfits, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Titus Andronicus, Screaming Females—and the Gaslight Anthem sound exactly like a band from Jersey. Or, at least, Jersey as we knew it, before idiotic orange alcoholics became the state's new mascot. MEGAN SELING
