Before The Gaslight Anthem plays a historic venue, they like to look up all the weird little facts and history on Wikipedia, like any normal person does. For The Roxy Theatre on Hollywood’s famed Sunset Strip, this means stories of The Rocky Horror Show's first stage run in the US, as well as the introduction of Paul Reubens' Pee-wee Herman. If neither of those are enough reason to headline that stage, we don't know what is.
For anyone who missed the live webcast of The Gaslight Anthem’s Brooklyn show this past week, we caught them at their sold out show in Hollywood. More photos are on our Flickr.
Also, they do a killer cover of “Baba O’Riley,” if you’re into that sort of thing, which we are.
