Hi!

It's a shame that I didn't find this forum earlier! Lovely to see other people this psyched about TGA Smile

I'm Filip, 22 years old. I'm from Belgium and live in Brussels (where my home is) and Leuven (a small student city in Belgium, where I'm studying and living during the week). I don't know if there are other Belgian fans here?

The main reason for me subscribing on this forum and reading as much as I can? Not my nerdiness, but my incredible admiration for The Gaslight Anthem and Brian Fallon, who is to me one of the most inspired songwriters I've ever heard. I first heard The Gaslight Anthem (think it was The '59 Sound) about a year ago in a bar. I liked what I heard, asked the bartender which band that was, and a few weeks later I already checked them out in a small venue in Brussels. I was immediately hooked and I've seen them three times since: first at the Dour Festival in 2009 and a year later at Rock Werchter. A few weeks later, I was on holiday in the US, and was verrry surprised to find out that TGA played in Los Angeles (The Wiltern) when I was there. A great experience (my first concert abroad), which makes me even more impatient for their next gig in Brussels (14/11). It will be my fifth time seeing them live, and it still excites me every time.

And as much as I love their catchy, groundshaking songs like The '59 Sound, Casanova Baby!, Boxer, I'da Called You A Woody, Joe,..., there is nothing that beats the slower stuff, which show the incredible talent of Mr. Fallon. Examples: Blue Jeans & White T-shirts, We Did It When We Were Young, She Loves You (what a shame that it's just a B-side) and my ultimate favourite: Here's Looking At You, Kid, one of the songs of my life!

What else do you need to know about me? I LOVE music (some of my favourite bands include Muse, Sigur Rós, Belle & Sebastian, The National,... you can find more on my )Last FM-page), films and football (or soccer, whatever you like; I support a small second division side in Belgium), parties and life Smile
As my welcome gift, I tried to rip the stream from TGA @ Rock Werchter (july 2010) and uploaded Here's Looking At You, Kid to Youtube:



(for some reason, the video is lagging a bit, but hey, at least I tried!)

See you around!

It's at the Ancienne Belgique, which is a venue right at the centre of the city. Are you coming by train? It's very close to the Central Station. Just follow the signs with Beurs / Bourse, AB is right next to it. One of the easiest venues to find Smile
