Gaslight Anthem still burns

Four records in and still suffering the endless comparison treatment, it's high time folks started to let the Gaslight Anthem exist on its own merits, without the looming specter of that iconic fellow Garden State native.

Biggest mosh pit of Best Music Poll 2009? That's easy: the Gaslight Anthem's set, which had worried punks milling around City Hall four hours before showtime, like they were gonna miss a parole hearing.

No, not the typical joint for a punk gig. But judging from down-the-block lines outside Hurricane O'Reilly's -- and from the raucous sing-alongs inside -- WFNX's invite-only GASLIGHT ANTHEM gig drew far more fans than yahoos. Jersey's Bosscore heroes brought the full band and played for an hour, then stuck around to hang out for at least that long afterwards. And security didn't kick out the stage divers, so there's that. The big surprise was a Replacements cover, which we'll be posting some quality video of later in the week. For now we've got the Flipcam take of "Patient Ferris Wheel" and a bunch more photos, all after the jump.
