The Gaslight Anthem: A Jersey Rocker Gets Personal

New Jersey has a proud heritage in rock music, from punk legends like Misfits to the Boss himself. The sonic imprint of the Garden State is unmistakable in the music of The Gaslight Anthem, which carries on in Jersey's proud rock 'n' roll tradition.

While in the Twin Cities to support Handwritten, the band's fourth studio album, Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon stopped by The Current's studios to talk with Mary Lucia about the difference between performing at clubs vs. music festivals, busking on the street and, of course, Bruce Springsteen.
