I'm old, yes, but hated crowd-surfers and violent moshers as a young man. Mollycoddled prep school boys and uni jock pricks seeking attention by smashing into others is as interesting as a shit I took last week. The band kept close watch on what was happening beneath and before them and seemed bemused by the wildness. This was my first Gaslight Anthem show so I can't say if this was typical audience behaviour. It's just so fucking selfish, and detracts from the action on stage. Sometimes this a good thing, but not when Brian Fallon and Gaslight Anthem are running through a flawless set of razor riffs and confessional vocals.
