Still out working the American Slang record, The Gaslight Anthem performed "Bring It On" on Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday night. They are just back from Japan, were they were scheduled to play concerts the week of the earthquake and tsunami hit. Those shows were canceled.
They definetely retained the punk edge with a raucous live show at the Vogue last year, yet rougher edges are eased a bit when they are on television - to their advantage.
Some bands go the other direction and look raw in front of the camera. The Gaslight Anthem gets bigger and more epic on TV. They nail a powerful, building performance.
The band spends the first two months of summer on tour in Europe.
