I was on the way home from work today and had to take a pretty long detour because traffic was so bad. I decided it'd been too long since I listened to The '59 Sound straight through, so I put it on. Traffic was still pretty shitty on the detour route, and there was a car waiting to cut in at a stop sign. I had the right-of-way but wasn't really going anywhere anyway so I waived him over. He pulled out, waived, I waived back. Then at the next stop light the guy, who looked about my age (mid-20s), sticks his head out and yells something. I had to turn the music down to hear him:

"What was that?"
"Is that Gaslight?!"
"Yeah!"
"Hell yeah, dude!"

Then the light turned green and we drove off.

I've definitely had instances where someone else is wearing a Gaslight shirt and we look at each other and do the "We're twinsies!" thing. But nothing on the road!

I was in a local-owned mom and pop record store and heard Great Expectations start playing. I figured it was Pandora or something, and just kept browsing when I heard '59 Sound come on and I realized they were playing the album. Keep in mind I live in this small little town where I figured I was the only one in a 50 mile radius who knew of these guys.

That's cool...the closest I have to that is being in HMV and having the full Handwritten come on, its nowhere near the same although when it happened I was debating why no one in the shop reacted or cared for it at all. They just kept walking through like normal and I was the only person who seemed to notice or care.
