The Gaslight Anthem played at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH on 03/30/09. These guys have a ton of energy and really get into their set. They have been getting a lot of air time on the local radio station with their hit song “59 Sound”. They were a great band to photograph since they really showed lots of emotion during the show. The crowd was going crazy for them and a few people did some crowd surfing. I didn’t take any pictures of that for some reason. There was more security in the photo pit for this show than for any other I have been to. They grabbed a few different people and pulled them over the barrier during the first 3 songs when I was shooting. It was pretty intense. A good ways through the set they played a cover of “The Replacements” song “Left of the Dial”. This rendition was awesome and was the first time I had ever heard any band cover “The Replacements”. I have to say that this cover was probably one of the best I have ever heard. His voice was spot on. Grab a ticket to see these guys if they come through your town.
