The Gaslight Anthem- 59 Sound
6:30 p.m., Vino’s. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.
It’s a father/son bonding special. Far from the emo-punk Vino’s has lately been known for, New Jersey’s Gaslight Anthem writes detail-heavy working class anthems and plays them fist-pumpingly loud and fast. Bruce Springsteen’s easy lyricism and R&B melodies are obvious touchstones, the Replacements’ endearingly sloppy melancholy, too. Since it formed in 2006, Gaslight Anthem has played some 500 shows, and it’s starting to pay off. It’s got a feature in the latest Rolling Stone and the New York Times and NME have raved about the band’s latest, “The ’59 Sound,” named for an amplifier lead singer Brian Fallon built himself. As a bonus for the bonding, the group usually plays punked-up covers of songs by the likes of Ben E. King and Sam Cooke. Polar Bear Club, O Pioneers and Harbour open.
