Theme For A New Brunswick Basement Show

“The Diamond Church Street Choir” from the Gaslight Anthem’s just-released-today record American Slang has been my song of the week. Sadly, I can’t seem to embed it, so here you go. It’s a pretty and pride-filled ode to New Brunswick of the sort you get from the city’s better punk bands (Sticks & Stones, Lifetime). In fact, it’s so good it makes me feel a little mournful that I had such a bitter and hate-hate relationship with my college town.
