Top Gigs This Week – 14th- 20th November
Tuesday – Brian Fallon &The Crowes @Concorde 2
Times 7:00pm – 11:00pm
Support from Dead Swords (Alex Rosamilia of The Gaslight Anthem playing solo)
- Bursting at its seams with huge hooks, big choruses, and enormous heart, PAINKILLERS marks the first solo album from Brian Fallon, known far and wide as singer/guitarist of the Gaslight Anthem, as well as such acclaimed outfits as The Horrible Crowes and Molly & The Zombies. Produced by studio superstar Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Frank Turner, Keith Urban), richly textured songs like “Long Drives” and the addictive title track encompass the great rush and flow of American music, fusing sonic hits of heartland country and folk with hardcore punk energy and classic rock ‘n’ roll swagger. PAINKILLERS once again affirms the NJ-based rocker’s elemental gifts as a songwriter and storyteller, booming with insistent imagery, narrative craft, and the extraordinary emotional acuity that has informed his music since the very start.
- Brian Fallon will be hitting the UK this November to perform songs from his debut solo album Painkillers.
- Event status: Live (Tickets Available)
