Last week, Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon performed a special acoustic set for local alternative station X1075’s Studio X series at the Vinyl inside the Hard Rock Hotel. My friend Charlsey won tickets to the event and knowing what a big fan of Gaslight I am, she invited me along.
With less than two dozen people in attendance, the singer/songwriter took to the stage to perform three stripped-down versions of songs from Gaslight’s latest album Handwritten – “45,” “Desire,” and the title track. In between, Fallon answered questions posed by DJ Jason Mahoney about the current tour with Rise Against, signing to major label Mercury and more.
If you missed the broadcast (or live out of state) it will be up on the X1075 website shortly. In the meantime we have our own coverage of the event right here, including photos and video of two of the songs.
