PostSubject: Top TGA Live Shows?   Tue Jun 22, 2010 1:10 am

Maybe there has been a similar post to this, but I was just wondering what would be considered the "top" or "essential" live shows of Gaslight's young career? I'm a huge Springsteen fan (as many others are) and on his boards they have a bootleg list called the "Top 55 Shows" (or something like that) which is pretty much a collection of shows that the fans have deemed to be the best performances/setlists/recordings/intangibles/etc and thus essential bootlegs... Passaic '78, Agora '78, Nassau NYE '80 etc

Thought it would be cool to get people's responses on what would be the best or "essential" Gaslight shows so far, either best setlists, best performances, or amazing "you had to be there for this" moments.

Just watching the Glastonbury set from '09 on YouTube and its absolutely incredible. Everything is just so tight plus it was one of the two times that Bruce joined them on stage, and it was in front of a huge crowd so they probably added a ton of fans that day... however the set is about 45 mins I think and only 8 songs long, so I don't know if it would be in the running for "top show."

Wondering what others opinions are on the top Gaslight shows so far?

off the top of my head i would say
the end of the year montclair show.
american slang release show @ irving
about every show at the pony.

but i am probably biased to the nj/ny shows since those are the ones that i go to as i am right on the border of ny and nj on the ny side.

Yeah. The three shows on my "Wow I wish I were there" would be the Hyde Park show (or the Glasto show), the end of year show and the AS release show.

Overall, I'd probably also add the LA show where they first played T59S simply for what that song and record did for their career.
