In the footsteps of the Boss

Last night I was at the Verizon Center watching my team, the New York Rangers, lose to the Washington Capitals.  As I was ordering a second beer to numb the pain of an increasingly likely defeat, the Gaslight Anthem’s song “American Slang” came on over the loudspeaker.  It reminded me that I hadn’t listened to their most recent album (from 2010) in awhile, and that I’d never written about them on PYM.

This NEW JERSEY band now has three albums out, but I didn’t hear of them until the release of their second album, The ’59 Sound.  Here’s a sampling of their music from all three albums.  You’ll hear the clear influence of Bruce Springsteen, in addition to classic rock acts like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers.

and here’s maybe their catchiest song yet

    Thanks to the Caps’ win, the Bs took first in the East with their OT win at Phoenix. Rask gave up a goal, tho, for the first time in about three starts.

      I’m just glad we’re officially out of Giants’ whining season and into Rangers’ whining season.

      Rangers rested Lundquist and started Biron, who has been good this year, but did not look good last night.

    Giants whining season will continue at least through sunday night. Sorry.
