Today’s Video Spotlight focuses on a Covers Headline that I posted about on Feb. 18th. Recently The Gaslight Anthem performed their rendition of Baba O’Riley at the Carnegie Who event in NYC. Here’s some video of that performance.

The Gaslight Anthem is currently working on their new disc, entitled American Slang, which is due out June 15th.
