When you are (used to be) able to tell what era/tour the concert was just by either Brian or Alex R's guitars and/or by Brian's haircut Very Happy

Yes, I am proud and just a little bit showing-off!


Oh that was you! I filmed that! I think we wrote on youtube after the gig. ;-) That was indeed very cool! Wink By the way I live just around the corner, in Kleve.

Basemen, how did you get onstage? I would love to sing with Brian!

Haha, Rebekka, that's really around the corner! We might even play in your town sometime next year!

For the Red Head Chick: This is what I reported after the concert:
"And after that they came to my request Red at Night. I made this sign with the request of Red At Night on it and the line: "I got my harmonica with me". He saw it and said he didn't have a harmonica holder. So I said: "I can play it". He agreed and there I was standing on stage next to Brian Fallon himself. He checked if I had the right key (g), I was well-prepared, so it was. He asked my name and we started playing. It was unbelieveable and unforgettable. It's so surreal, I frigging played a song with The Gaslight Anthem! The crowd loved it, at least, they all applauded loudly. After we had played the song, he said the band would sign my sign and give it back to me after the show.
And so it was, Ian came back with the signed sign, the setlist and two guitarpicks (pictures will come later). He told me it was the first time ever, a visitor of the show played with the band. I think it's a pretty good line: "The Gaslight Anthem, played with Bruce Springsteen, Chuck Ragan and Stefan Kollee!"
Ian also said: "I will remember you: The guy who played harmonica. When we come around again, you just have to shout my name and maybe you could meet the band." It was so cool!"

You annoy people on a regular basis with your constant Gaslight chatter. (Hi, I'm Shannon, and I'm a Gaslight-aholic.)

Basemen, what a great story. I thought I might just send them a message on twitter and ask if I could sing with them in Minneapolis. Anybody here tweet to TGA and get responses?

...if your first time hearing Gaslight was EXACTLY as described in "I'da Called You Woody, Joe". Hooked by the end of American Slang's 1st verse!

You literally stop talking to people mid-sentence when your favorite part of one of their songs comes on.

Haha same. It doesn't stop me either. My friends have shit taste in music so they'd never be fans anyway so it's like, if your're not gonna be a fan then I'm not worried about making you sick of them!

...If you see a guy on a stage wearing a St. Pauli jacket and you think it's Alex even though the band was in Europe at the time. (Happened last week)

...if you drive/wait in line for hours just to watch them play 45 over and over.

You know you're a true Gaslight fan if... Your dad tells you not to talk about them for one whole evening. There's been no conversation for 3 hours.

If you spend several hours debating what each part of the fan club terms and conditions means.

(This is for guys) You're 99 percent sure you're straight, but you would (essentially) give up everything to marry Brian Fallon.
